I was just out in my shop, so I brought these in to get some pictures.

The back three are Ash, & the front one is Apple. The original handles were kind of small for my big mitts. I have three more left to make. By the way, these are Record, Lathe Chisels. Boy do these ever work great. It’s the difference of night, & day when compared with my old Craftsman chisels.

Hi, Dick, nice handles. You mention the Record Brand Chisel (the last one has that on the handle). If you like Record, I think that you would love Robert Sorby turning chisels.

I just thought – perhaps these are carving chisels – no – read the title of the post, Don.

Thanks Don.
They’re starting to come out with a lot of interesting new styles of chisels. It wood be nice to see a demo video of the ones you mentioned. I also edited the wording in my project story.

Thats all I buy are Sorby chisels and those handles look almost exact. Do you order the ferrels from Woodcraft or Rockler or what? I’ve got a lot of splits if you’re feeling energetic.’
Just kidding, great looking handles, I should know I’ve broke enough of them. Bye the bye have you ever used the termite for gutting out a vase or other long piece on the lathe? mike

Thanks Mike,
I used the ferrules from the original handles. On my carving tool handles I’ve either brass or copper pipe. The brass looks a little classier. The termite, is that the one with the little ring ?

Yes, and you have to be careful with it hanging up. but it will hog a lot of wood out of the center of a log in a short time. Rockler, I think, sells them, the chisel itself is expensive but the tips are fairly cheap, and you have to watch what you buy, some of them don’t have replacable tips. I forget what company I bought one from. With it you get a grindstone and round metal holder to resharpen it. Those are sweet handles you made. I’ve got some hickory or maple, maybe I’ll give it a try. I think I’ve seen ferrules in woodcraft or pennstate magazines. Still can’t get those darn photos to upload here and yes I just backed them up a few months ago. I run a check today their still on my computer, I just have to dig them out. If you ever try one read up on it , the termite, they can be real tricky. mike

Mike, I read up on the termite. They say it’s a tricky tool, it wants to catch a lot. The Sorby tool that Don shows, looks interesting. If I were planning on getting some more chisels, I might try them. Not a bad price either.
