What bevel angle makes the most sense for my wood chisels. Can you cut through the murk and provide some clarity?
I use a spring-loaded corner chisel (below)—and a few mallet taps—to square up corners of hinge mortises and similar recesses. But how do I sharpen it after the cutting edge dulls?
What's the difference between files, rasps, and rifflers? Can you describe the best applications for each of these hand tools, and how to use them? Do I need all three in my shop?
Create a custom insert to protect sharp edges.
Good news: Easy and precise sharpening doesn't have to cost a lot of coin.
