Because it's already there.
The replacement blades for the 12-951 are part # 12-350.
I bought it online.
Under current model designation, this is a Stanley 12-951 flat base spokeshave. Under the historical designation, it was known as a “151” model and the numerals 151 are still cast into the metal body of the spokeshave.
Yes but keep in mine that the blade is not to wide and it is a small unit designed for small work. Good Luck
Not sure. If you have a good local hardware store they may have a solution for you in their nuts and bolts bins. Good luck. Try Staley website
No. You want a drawknife. The throat of this would be clogged by bark.
