Since I’ve started to work more with hand tools, I’ve been (slowly) outfitting myself with a well stocked toolbox. Now that I have the tools, I’m taking what classes I can, and also bringing my tools with me for various installs and repair work.
What are some good options for personalizing had tools? I love the way the tools look (part of their appeal to me), so I don’t want to do anything like paint them orange. I’d also rather not try to engrave with a dremel – same reason.
I have nice chisels, but they’re all A2 steel – I don’t know how one would ‘mark’ them. My planes are mostly ductile iron – can it be stamped? Maybe some kind of a discrete mark/stamp for the saw handles?
So, fellow jocks, how do YOU mark/identify your hand tools?
Does anyone know of a place to maybe have a monogram or something done as a stamp?
Thanks in advance!
