The Tools Required
: ON THE USE OF STAINS
A few simple tools will complete an outfit capable of doing a great variety of work. The illustration (Fig. 246) shows five chisels, of which all other chisels are modifications.
A and B are both oblique firmer chisels, A being ground with a bevel on one side only, and B with a bevel on each side.
C is a broad gage, with a hollow blade, and a curved cutting edge, ground with a taper on the rounded side only.
D is a narrow gage similarly ground, and E is a V-shaped gage.
It may be observed that in wood-turning sharp tools are absolutely necessary, hence a good oil stone, or several small, round and V-shaped stones should be used.
