I found a 1” Stanley 720 paring chisel at an antique mall while on vacation (what else would one do on vacation but visit antique malls and search for old hand tools?). The handle is sound and shows little wear. The blade looks bad in the picture, but the discoloration is on the surface and there is no pitting. The only problem is that the handle does not “stick” in the socket, probably because the wood has shrunk over time.
Does anyone have some suggestions on how to join the handle to the blade?
Also, the handle fits in the socket, but I’m not sure whether it is original. Anybody know?
