    Cool tap

    Never saw one of these before, but how cool - a tap set that fits in the space of a screwdriver?

    On the right is a pair of Buck chisels, probably going to become a matched pair of skew chisels.

    My dad has one of those Craftsman tap sets, but his had red handle with the clear plastic.

    I bet them matching skew chisels will be sweet!

    Problem with that tap handle is that it makes it VERY easy to break off small taps when you flex the handle a little bit off straight, which is very easy to do. DAMHIKT!

    Have you seen the latest Lee Valley "New Items" list? They have a pair of Narex skew chisels for sixteen bucks. Makes grinding your own a little less tempting - at least for me...
