I decided it was about time I fixed up some of the chasing tools I use the most and thus mushroom the heads over on the most. Since it's also a metalworking BB let me apply for this one too. :) Oh, I guess for this BB I really only have to do one, but I figured since my tools are small I'll do several. It's a quick job. I'm not trying to apply for the BB multiple times here just to be clear.
Here is my submission for the Metalworking - Sand - Dress a Mushroomed Chisel BB.
I sharpened and dressed two cold chisels. Both were dull and rusty. One had a slightly mushroomed striking surface (and is only shown in the first photo) and the second had a significantly mushroomed striking surface. I used an angle grinder with a wire wheel to remove the rust and a bench grinder to reshape the striking end and to sharpen them. I finished with a quick kiss on each edge on the large stationary belt sander then a light coat of linseed oil as they are stored outside in an area protected from rain but not humidity.
To document the completion of the BB, I have provided the following:
- A picture of the mushroomed head
- The tool you're fixing it with
- The fixed tool
