Nice work on this manual mortiser. I read your blog, didn’t see any details on hardening & tempering, which I think I could use while making molding plane irons. If you have time, can you fill us in on this?

Beautiful and very useful chisel. I think most of here will understand why you made it instead of buying one,
as my great grandaughter would say “I made it and it is mine.” Thank you for sharing.
