The most important shop tool...

Turned the one on the right, used the one on the left as a go-by.

Various screwdrivers.

Lots of outstanding shop made tools here... Some of you are incredibly productive for sure. The main benefit of this great thread might be the amount of inspiration one gets.

I like to build my own tools also, if I can find the time. Two of them:

A wooden shooting plane with lead filled (weighs about 7 lbs)

A plane hammer with ebony handle and inlayed ebony button

I decided to try to make three sets for plane making. They're 7/8", 5/8" and 3/8" wide. The first photo is of them after stress relieving, the second photo is my set with handles I rushed through to test the steel, and the third is Don using his. I would guess that Don uses his for about 90% of his chisel work and I almost always reach for mine with I'm doing anything with a chisel.

Wow! They are not laminated perhaps? Do you make them from one piece of O1? How did you get that bolster on the end?

Great effort.

Ps, I see you have allready answered my questions. Great effort nonetheless. I do wonder if a blacksmith couldn't produce such chisels with a lot less effort? Apart from the Japanese bladesmiths there doesn't seem to be much blacksmithing around anymore in the chisel area.
