Two more MHG firmer chisels a one inch and a one and half inch to go with the two inch chisel purchased earlier.
A set of three framing slicks again from MHG these are hand tools not intended to be hit with a mallet, instead used more like a hand plane the massive handles allow the user to put their body weight behind the tools if necessary. Students will learn how to put a razor sharp edge on all of the tools which will make a good finish of the tool easy to achieve and reduce the force needed to remove wood efficiently.
These three scotch eye augers are new but old stock purchased from a German supplier on Ebay this has saved me quite a bit of money as newly manufactured augers are expansive so these a a good result. They will compliment the use of some of my other drilling tools I’ve been collecting over the last few years. these will be used to drill holes for inserting pegs to keep the timber frame buildings together in the absence of modern fixings.
