Quiz Time - What is it?

Do you know what it is, or what it is used for? This tool was made back in the 60's by a tradie to help him in his work as to buy one it would cost him a week wages. To buy one today it would cost around $100 No its not a scraper!

We might need a clue @r23on!

 

I assume there something in the leather case that connects to the tool?

So close Brad

Its a handle to hold the blade of a spoke shave. The blade slides in the slot and the screw is tightened to support the blade. Because the blade is much shorter than a plan blade for may it is difficult to hold and maintain the angle of 25 deg's. As the blade is moved forwad many would role the blade giving the blade  a roled edge, not great for cutting.I use diamond plates to sharpen my bladesI use diamond plates to sharpen my bladesSpoke Shave and plane bladeSpoke Shave and plane bladeThe blade disappears in my handsThe blade disappears in my hands

The bolt put me off thinking honing gauge as I thought it would get in the way...

Looking at wet stone sharpeners, not a cheap project to do right.
