Two Hobbies In One!

I have the tools and experience to heat treat my knife blades, so when I started wood turning and didn't have any chisels I started making my own. I turned a handle which allows interchangeable bits. I made the chisels out of 1/2" O1 drill rod. One stick made 5 chisels; not bad for $10! Once I ground them to shape, I heat treated them, tempered them, sharpened them and put them to work.
