Right, so I got a job working at a timber framing company and I'm a blacksmith when I'm not working there.
Right now I'm wondering what sizes of chisels and slicks I should make. My current thought is to do a full set starting at 1/2" and going up to 2" in 1/4" steps. I'm asking this as I'm still reasonably new at the job (less than a year in), and I want to expand the selection of equipment I have available to me.
Currently my hand tool selection is entirely comprised of stuff made by me, and I like that theme. Right now I have a 2" slick, 2" chisel, 1" chisel, and a 1" corner chisel. I'm thinking of adding in chisels stepped in 1/4" increments from 1/2" up to 2 1/4"

So, what should I add? Even if it's not a chisel or slick, what other handy tools should I consider?
