Forging a Socket Chisel DVD
Blacksmithing for Woodworkers

Peter Ross

Making your own chisel isn't as hard as you might think, but there are a few things to know. Historic chisels were made with iron, with steel fused to the tip for a stronger, more durable cutting edge. Host Peter Ross still makes them that way, and he's happy to show you how to do the same. In the video, he also shows you how to temper the blade and how to know when the heating temperature is perfect for the best strength. Basic bench work with files and abrasives add the finishing touches to a strong woodworking tool for your shop.
