Seeking help from those familiar with the Record A151. I have a (UK-made) Stanley 151R (round-bottom) spokeshave. The mouth opening is a good 1/16" in front of the blade, so not really conducive to fine shavings. Haven't seen the Record A151 in person (I'm in the U.S.), but from some of the photos on eBay, looks as if the mouth might be a little tighter. Is this true, or only the angle of the photos plus my wishful thinking? -- I shimmed the blade on a Stanley no. 65 chamfer shave down to almost no opening at all and had really good results, but the 151R blade would lift right off the adjusters if shimmed anyhwhere close to that. Just wondering if picking up the Record off eBay would get me closer. Thanks for your help!
