Upgrade of the set
Now ready for really fine work.
Well… Ahhhh… Hmmmmm…
Ok I admit it!!!
Just for my pleasure, I love making tools, now I said it!
So now my dovetail set is able to clean up really fine dovetails and also able to get in to half blinds and other for cleanup.
Once again some old chisels of a nice quality, now some really narrow for cleanup and a 6mm for making a small dovetailed chisel.
Separate the handles from the tang from the handle and then put on new handles (look in this blog series).
The narrow just need a sharpening.
Ohhh yes and a new handle for my little Razor saw to match the set.
I give it two lines like the old to make it stand out from the chisels once they are stored in the roll.
(Yes I’m an architect).
Then some fine shaping on the water stone grinder and a new dovetail chisel is born from the old 6mm.
Now I should be able to get into just about every little corner.
And here we are, the full set.
Hope this new dovetail upgrade could be to inspiration, perhaps bring some old chisels back to a new life,
