So I saw another LJ had built a glue bottle holder. I tought I could dress it up a little. I built one for myself. So a neighbor came down to look at a bed I built my daughter. I showed her some my other projects. She saw my glue bottle holder and asked me to build her a smaller one. She went to her scrap book club and I got orders for 6 more, 15 to 20 more later I got enough cash to buy a brand new set of Two Cherries chisels. I got them from Jamestown distributing for $155 and change.
Well the night they show up I’m on the puter reading the pros and cons about how sharp they are and how they need to flattened and the whole myriad of issues folks have for these chisels. Me, being me I pulled one out, started playing with it and quickly proceeded to slice a small cut in my finger. Yeah I know what, I’m gonna put them to use before I start bitchin about them. They really look pretty fine and my finger can attest to the fact they are sharp out of the box. The acetone I used the next day cleaning up a plane the next day confirms this.
I’m planning a return trip to Germany in a couple of years. I intend to put a visit Remscheid on my list to visit along with other sites to see honest to god old world craftsmen do what they do. Anybody got suggestions, I’m all ears.
One other thing Jamestown service was awesome. I got these chisels in 4-5 days. These are the polished ones in a hardwood case.
