Hey fellow jocks!
I recently acquired a pretty full set of vintage buck brothers chisels from a next door neighbor who was moving into a retirement home. I lived a couple doors down from him almost my whole life and never knew he was quite the woodworker. I also got a nice Stanley Sweetheart smoothing plane that I would like to restore at some point as well.
Anyways, I also just recently got a lathe and wanted to turn some new handles for the whole set of chisels. I just wanted to get some feedback on the quality of the chisels I have. I looked around on google to see if I could find any specific information about the chisels I have. Almost all of them have a tang for seating the chisel and I was trying to determine if these are of good quality, etc. I’m also very new to woodworking so I’m trying to educate myself on the different types (bench, paring, etc) so any advice as to how I should probably sharpen these chisels to bring them into a usable state would be very much appreciated as well.
Thanks in advance!
