    I made this handle last night

    The chisel is 8 1/2" long the handel is 3 3/4" long is the handle long enough this was just an experiment to see if I would get the tapered part of the handle right & I did. I haven't pressed the handle all the way home yet.

    Hi Bart--nice shape to that handle, good job.

    fwiw, being that it is a socket chisel, the socket should remain about an 1/8" from coming into contact with the shoulder on the handle. So if under heavy use, it drives down to the shoulder, a couple raps should loosen the handle enough to pull it off and turn the shoulder back a touch.

    btw, what wood did you use? I like the grain on it.

    Take care, Mike
