Just a simple method that will work to set the hoop properly on your Japanese chisels. Just remember that if you buy a brand new Japanese chisel that they will NOT come setup and ready to use. You are expected to set the tool up the way that you prefer.

If you haven’t done anything with Japanese tools this task is a great confidence booster and a great starting point for your skills. It’s truly not difficult and once you’ve done it a few times it’ll become second nature just like any other task in the shop.

And really this is a personal preference thing, it takes time to determine what works best for you with your work style and preference. So this isn’t a “this is the only way to do this” method, just one of I’m sure are many.
