Picked up an old spokeshave for a couple bucks over the weekend.  Cleaned up and re-handled.  One of the forged tangs was broken so I welded a threaded end on both.  Turned handles out of scrap maple.  Made the ferrules out of brass tube that I peened into a dome shape.  Found the T H Witherby brand name under all the rust.  Seems like I’m building my hand tool arsenal, for what I’m not sure.  I do love fixing old tools though.
