Topic tags/keywords: identify question plane spokeshave scratch stock beading tool

Hello everyone. Can someone please tell me what is this tool? I just got it, but without a blade, looks a little like some sort of scratch stock. But without a blade I’m having hard time finding it anywhere. Those two holes are for wedges of some sort? I have no idea if it’s shop made, all the metal parts are fitted really nicely, so it could be manufactured.

Thank you in advance!

Looks like an auger handle.

Thanks Ripper70, but it’s not :D Before this post was approved I got the answer from an old tool catalog (after 2 hours of searching…).
It’s Coachmakers’/Carriage maker’s Fence Router. I think it’s Norris, because it looks almost exactly the same as I found in google listed under “Norris Coachmakers’ Fence Router”.

No idea what I will use it for, I think in the end it will be my basic beading tool.

Thank you!

Czokalapik,

A router is not a beading tool but rather a tool for flattening the bottom of a space or dado. The Stanley #71 has fence as well but the Norris Coachmakers… Fence Router would be able to reach much farther than the Stanley into a panel will keeping the fence against the edge of the panel.

Just_Iain, I know a router is not a beading tool :) I don’t have any need (and can’t see any in near future) for Coachmakers’ Fence Router. I have my shop made Router plane and it’s more than enough for what I’m doing. That’s why i thought of making different type of blade for this Fence router, so I can use it as a simple beading tool.

Sure looks like you could adapt this for use as an adjustable beader fairly easily. I have a maple beader made in the 1990s which looks pretty darned similar !
