About Forge your Own Chisels with Michael Merillo

What does the course cover?

Join us for a half-day chisel making session. Using 16mm (or 5/8 for those old school makers out there) square stock you’ll forge two chisels to required specifications, and two of your own requirements. Be sure to think about the shape and sizes you might want/need. Once forged your chisels you’ll harden and temper them to make the tools more durable and long-lasting.

What do I get to play with?

Oxy-acetylene torch
Hand Tools
