I’m a bit of a tool junky and I’ve been trying to put together a set of Stanley 750 chisels for many years. I’ve found lots of 3/4” and 1” chisels at tag sales and flea markets for very little money, often without handles. Well, I finally bought a full 7-piece set, the largest chisel being 2” wide. I’m not sure of the exact age, but they certainly have some age on them. I turned handles for the full set from tiger maple, and made the handlesl about 1” longer than the originals. I also had a mini-set of 1/2”, 3/4”, and 1” and I put much longer padauk handles on them for paring. I finished them with my typical pen finish: Mylands sanding sealer, xxx wax, Mylands high friction polish, and Renaissance Wax.
