Well, with all the little fairy doors I’ve been making now (ok so it’s only 5 so far but I’m on a roll!!) my little $1 store chisel set is starting to lose its effectiveness. But I have to say what a great purchase that was! I thought it would break on the first use but I’ve used it MANY MANY times and it is still hanging in there.
Yesterday, Rick and I took a drive to Lee Valley so I could “test drive” some new tools to see what fit in my hand nicely.
I ended up with a 3mm parting tool and a 4.5mm straight chisel from this set shown on the Lee Valley website.

I can’t wait to give them a try. I’m sure that I am going to be amazed at the difference from the little $1 store set.
