Tried Googling the code etc with no results.....

Now that is interesting! And the handle shape... hmm... I’m going to have to see if I can find anything on that little beauty!

Both great useful tools. Really essential tools.

I agree.
I have been fortunate to come across a nice 10" sweep Stanley Sweetheart drill and many bits have come my way.
I am more and more grabbing the SW to drill out handles and or anything. I used a smaller 8"/9" sweep no name I have when installing the new dishwasher a few months back, requiring a new waterline run a completely different route than the preexisting washer set up.

Spokeshaves...they are on my radar now for the next handle I work. Wether it be thinning and shaping an off the shelf or working an old mattock handle again, the next rehang will undoubtedly need some work.

So.... What' the difference between a spoke shave and a draw knife? I picked this up at one of my favorite stores last week. ( Dad's workshop, their prices are amazing) I just got tired of using my pocket knife for shaping handles.

You have a draw knife there.
Here the big one is a draw knife and little one is a spoke shave. 15656566029265020049428346900767.jpg
