Typical tune-up but also added epoxy to blade seat based on a recommendation if seat was not flat (it was not but very close). I like it. Once I discovered spills, I had a hard time putting it away though it cannot compete with a spill plane.

Minimal tune up required it of the store. Feels great in the hand.

I was pleased that the spokeshave worked fairly well right out of the package without having to sharpening it first.

Stanley is always a solid choice for affordable planes
This is an excellent spokeshave. Since receiving it, it has been one of my favorite tools to get to use. It's a breeze to re-sharpen and adjusts with ease. I much prefer the spokeshaves with the double adjustment knobs, rather than the single adjustment models. If you're ever in the market for a hand plane, spokeshave, or any of the sort then Stanley is always a good way to go. A very good product and an affordable price, especially when compared to the more expensive models than run well over a hundred or more.

I need to round over some square corners. Never used one but hoping this will work.

There's a left-handed long-handle cooking spatula sitting on my bench, waiting for a spoke shave. This job's way too big for my whittling knife alone

This tool should help us accomplish tasks such as carving curves in legs and faces of tables and drawers that my company is working on.
Andrew M on Nov 16, 2016
I just loved the shape of it, kind of like the Stealth fighter except for that hole in the wing. Those up-swung wings looks like actual the dihedral on a combat fighter jet. When I received it, I attached a small jet engine to the underside, and it actually flew for about ninety kilometers, until it ran out of fuel. When it fell to Earth it hit a little kid in a school yard, so I just walked away and left it. I guess I need to order another one.

BEST ANSWER: On YouTube search for Paul Sellers. He has wonderful videos. On hand tools including this Spoke Shave
How do I tune my Stanley spokeshave?
J H on May 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Go to YouTube for instructions
Why do spokeshave blades have the bevel facing down while block planes have the blade facing upwards? Both have front and back flat surfaces to ride on the wood being shaved. Thanks.
Pete C on Mar 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: That's a great question! Unfortunately, the full answer is actually rather complicated. It basically boils down to two things: the angle at which the blade is held in the tool relative to the wood's surface, and the way the blade is meant to actually raise a shaving from the wood's surface. Block planes were originally developed for clean cuts on end grain without crushing the wood fibers, which is why the blade goes in "upside down" relative to pretty much every other plane. Most other planes (including many spokeshaves) bed the blade at a 45° angle to the wood, which generally gives good results and allows the blade to be resharpened freehand without slight variations in the bevel angle messing with the way the plane cuts the wood. There may be other reasons as well, but these two are the main ones that I have observed.
