Compass Planes

    Do you think these planes are useful.

    I am doing a lot of curved work and would like to know if you find these planes (e.g., Stanley 113 or 20).  Is it better to rely on a spoke shave, care scraper and some sandpaper rather these planes.

    Thanks for your input?

    I have several normal-width spokeshaves that do a wonderful job on relatively narrow stock. 

    My Veritas wide spokeshave (about 18 inches from handle tip to handle tip) has a 2 5/8 inch wide blade which allows me to work on all the outside curved surfaces encountered so far. I suggest considering it as an option in your search. 

    Hope this helps.
