traveling with chisels?? - 7 replies
Guys, I was wondering what do you do to travel with chisels? I use a Bucketboss big mouth bag and have 2 chisels which I keep nice and sharp and because they move around in the bag they cut the bag and damage the edge. I tried putting cardboard sheaves around them but that didn’t seem to last very long. ????? Thanks for any ideas.
