WKS112412: Make a Chisel with Hand Tools!
Class Number 763-26979

Learn how to make tools using the most basic hand metalworking techniques and simple heat treating. This is the method I use to make chisels, plane irons and turning tools at home with no power tools at all.

In this workshop, we will take a piece of stock tool steel, cut and shape it with hacksaw and file, temper and anneal it with a propane torch and simple home-made forge, and finally mount it in a handle.

If you have taken the Metal Shop SBU, that is great but not necessary!
