It was hot outside, too hot to play (in the shed), so he went through his files on that hot, hot, hot day.
This month’s tool, a nice little hatchet to help poisoning woody weeds, you might need a blacksmith, farrier or someone with an oxy set to make it. I have put this one to quite a bit of use.
You will need a ball peen hammer head (which you can pick up for a couple of dollars at antique and old tool shops).
Heat it and start hitting.
And more….. And more
Turn it around and draw the ball out to a point (good for getting through thick bark)
Clean it up, heat to non magnetic red* then quench in (cheap) cooking oil (*a magnet won’t stick to it)
Final clean, mount and sharpen and one handy little bush regen tool.
