I quickly wanted to share this, since I am quite happy how it turned out.
I have been getting a little into hand tools and so, for a test, I bought my first two chisels recently.
I wanted smaller ones, for better handling, which has proven to be a good choice.
I opted for different manufacturers, to test the differences.
- Narex short chisel Wood Line Plus, 26mm
- MHG "short" chisel, 12mm
The MHG came with a small plastic "edge protector", the Narex came without.
Since I am always quite clumsy, I know I need some form of Protection...
I first thought about making a tool roll out of an old piece of leather that I have lying around. But since I don't know, how much my chisel collection will grow, it might not be the right time for such a thing.
So I opted for single sleeves.
Used an old leather belt, that had spent it's belt-years and was sitting around retired, waiting to be put to use.
Cut small pieces, used the belt punch pliers to put holes in and some cords (One piece of something I found, for the second one masonry line).
As mentioned above, I like them a lot.
Somehow, this forum inspires me more and more to try and find my own solutions for my "problems" rather than buying solutions.
...unless the solution is a new festool, obviously. But I just could not justify a Vecturo for this...
