I picked up a 1 1/2" rusty socket chisel for a buck the other day. After cleaning it a little I uncovered a Shapleigh Hardware logo. A little research let me know it was a decent chisel and worth fixing up. I soaked it in rust remover then ground a new edge on it.

It had a handle with it, but it was pretty small and looked like it was missing a cap. I decided to turn a new one out of Bois d'arc.

I flattened the back and honed it to 8000. I now own a quality tool that I can use every day. All it took was $1 and the knowledge I got from this group. Thank y'all for sharing your knowledge.
