    Wow, those look great, getting that many all the same, or even similar is not an easy thing to do!

    Do you have tools to put into the handles?

    Great job!

    That's quite a family you have! Good job on duplicating the size and shape!

    Gracias

    Thanks Ed.
    Stu, I havenīt any tool to put into the handles yet.
    Some time ago I posted a question in one of your
    threads. It was about where I could find some steel
    similar to the one you used to made your skew.
    I havenīt good luck in this search.

    I am making a tool using "cold rol" and
    inserting at the end a cutter. At the moment
    I am not quite sure how I will install the tool
    into the handle.
    How are you going to do with your skew?
    It should be in square or circular form?
    Are you going to use glue?
    I will apreciate your answers.
    Saludos

    If the steel is round I leave it round, if it is square, I round over the corners a bit but leave it square.

    I make the end that goes in the hole first a little smaller, to start the shaft into the hole, but a hole VERY slightly undersized is good too.

    I put the tool shaft in the vice, and then pound the handle onto the tool shaft, use a HEAVY hammer and a block of wood, so you are not POUNDING on the handle directly. If there is any gap around the tool shaft, where is goes into the handle, I'll put some CA glue in there.

    The skew is done, I'll post pics soon!

    The handles look excellent, Alfredo. Better than what you can buy in the store.

    Very nice!

    Quite a feat to get them to all look the same without a duplicator!
