centering tool

Recommended Posts

Here is a is a quick and dirty tool I made to center up and square up the shanks to the chisel on these chisels I am making. I don't need the tool for most of the chisels but some of them end up off center or bent at the base of the shank. The first couple that were out I used my swage with some loose shims to center the chisel on the split line of the swage but after 25lb of swage bouncing off the die I figured I needed a safer way. If I had a huge quantity of these to make I would have made a spring swage with the top and bottom the right thickness but most of the time this tool doesn't leave a flat and if it does it is a very small one.
