  Repairing a Chisel Socket by James D. Thompson 1 of 3  

Here are 2 old chisels

that I want to return

to service.


They have ugly flared out ends on the sockets where they have been hammered on.

Close up picture of the sockets.

A look at the ends of the sockets. These will require cleaning up before a handle can be installed.

I grind off most of the flare on a bench grinder, being careful not to grind into the socket.
