I have obtained a good condition round socket chesiel minus handel and
would like to find a source of replacement handels. However, it seems no
one makes them any more - can anyone help?
I do have one wood gouge that has a great handel with a leather "bumper"
on the end. I tried that and the leather just mushed out. How was this
leather treated to hold up so well? One person suggested soaking it in
borax, then leting it dry while compressed. Any comments?
Thanks in advance
I believe I saw a plastic handle being sold in Brownell's for that
exact purpose. You drill a small hole, heat the shank of the tool
(Checkering, chisle, screwdriver, whatever) and shove it in.
I am sure there are MANY other places.
