Hook tools for pole lathe
museum tools back to life

Part two.
The summer 2015 I bought some old museum tools on a marked.
Two of these tools were a pair of beautiful old hand forged hook tools for bowl turning on a pole lathe.
In the blog I bring back life to these old tools.

You can read more in the blog: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/98050


Pictures:
1. The two hook tools after restore.
2. The old handle, worms and all.
3. Open and close hook, in the back one I bought from UK.
4. Old ferules on new handles.
5. Shaping the handles.
6. A wee of my home made wax.

Hope this can inspire others to bring back life to old tools.

Best thoughts,

MaFe

Great blog Mafe. Nice work on restoring them. It would be very interesting using these as to what we have out there today. I like what you did to the handle. Have you tried them out?

Your stamp is a nice detail. Did you make the stamp yourself? The blog on this is also very well done.
Nice work.
