So I’m working a little on getting my chisels to the right size that will keep my hands from cramping. Taking some of the advise my fellow LJs provided I’ve gathered a few things to work with I went to my neighborhood bike shop and ...
So I’ve been lamenting that my use of some hand tools is limited due to strength and cramping issues when I hold things. I sold almost all my planes because I no longer have the arm strength to use them, but I’ve hung onto my nice chis...
