as my 1st 'ible i'll be making a screwdriver into a chisel
Step 1: Tools and PPE
I have this multi-tool that i never use the larger Flathead screwdriver. so i made it into a chesel
you'll need (at minimum)
some sort of grinder. I got one for £20 brand new from screwfix
a Flathead screwdriver (to make into a chisel)
gloves (don't want you to burn you hands)
safety glasses. a must with things that spark. i can tell you from experience that sparks and eyes don't mix well
Step 2: Coarse Grinding
get the general shaping with the coarse grindstone. look for an even finish. unless you want a skew
Step 3: Fine Tuning
fine tune with the fine grindstone. look for a angle about 40 degrees. you can make this angle sharper if you want.
Step 4: Proof in the Pudding
or the bit of wood in this case. i tried it our on a bit of untreated pine i had and it worked fine.
thanks 4 viewing ;) and pls vote 4 me
