Wow, didn't expect any interest in this at all lol.
Actually the sideways chisel thing was just a mental test. See if I could figure a way to get the chisel sideways but also secure. You cant see it, but they are pinned in and are impossible to remove unless you twist at a 45 degree angle. This is much easier and "fluid" than it sounds, however. The pins are drilled at a 10 degree up angle to let them "rest" in the back.
Input on ideas always welcome . not into the pvc pipe aesthetic, as useful as it may be.
Thanks for the response! I was planning on going with Targets EM8000, have you used this or have a different suggestion? On last thing, do you know about how long should a person wait before rubbing out the finish with precat? Thanks again, it's kind of nice being forced to use a different finish, after a while I just figured out my finishes of choice and stick to them.
