Some years back, when I was married to the first wife, I had occasion to get extremely upset and chose to hit a wall instead of my wife. I’m not very proud of doing it, but I think being that mad once out of 54 years is pretty good. However my hand still suffers from the punch which was to steel siding, (which still bears my fist mark).
My hand has gotten worse with age and griping lathe tools can be hard because they are all too small for me.
I’m going to turn walnut handles for myself that are a bit longer and a lot thicker to grip.
Anyone else have this problem with lathe chisels?
My question is how do you attach the handle? glue, or just make it tight?
