That’s a clever trick for turning in reverse with the swan necked tool. I’ll definitely remember that one for future reference. Thanks for the info.

I will have to go price some appropriate steel to see how much it will really save me to try to make my own tools. When I was looking for some tools steel for a plane iron I was making a few months back, the prices were crazy high, presumably because of the steel tariffs. I do like to make tools but the full sized Harrison specialties tools are about $55 each for the straight shafted tools , including the carbide and screw, so the steel will have to be significantly cheaper than that to justify making them myself.
