Greetings everyone.

Every now and then you come across some deals that are too good to pass up. This is one such case.

Most of the time I find these deals while visiting local antique stores and flea markets. I’m sure it’s that way for many of you as well.

Today’s awesome finds are these;

Kunz Concave Spoke Shave and a Veritas Bevel Setter




I don’t think it’s been used at all!


Bevel angles


Dovetail angles


Polygon miter angles

Nor has this Veritas Bevel Setter.

Now for the best part, the price.

The last time I checked, the Kunz Concave Spoke Shave sells, at Woodcraft, for $54.99 USD. My price, $25.00 USD.

As far as the Veritas Bevel Setter is concerned, Lee Valley is currently selling these for $38.50 USD.

Original price on the box

My price

For all intents and purposes, these tools are brand new. So instead of paying around $100.00, I paid $40.00. I’d say that’s a pretty good deal.

I haven’t tried to use the spoke shave yet. I need to tune it up a bit. I’ll probably post a video about it.

The Bevel Setter will definitely make setting my bevel gauge a lot easier. No more math to try to get the correct angle.

Well, that’s it for this episode of Awesome Find! Awesome Price! See you on the next one.

Take care.

Eric – Sometimes, when you least expect it, you can get a worthwhile tool for a good price.

Mads – Thanks, I’m sure you’ve had your fair share of good deals over the years. :-)
