The new tools

Here are some of the set of Henry Taylor carving chisels I bought. In great condition except for the line of blue spray paint across all thirteen of them. I guess somebody thought colouring them would identify them easily in a group workshop environment? A more subtle blue dot might have been better. Still, it likely won’t take much effort to remove the paint.



From the piece of paper I found in the roll, it seems to have been a Lee Valley set, likely a Hayward (with a couple of inconsistencies) , or Bridgewater. Here is the Brown & Sharpe combination Square – a No. 4. In good condition, level intact, as is most of the Japanning, except where a previous owner scratched their name in.
