Tools I Love

I imagine lots of craftspeople become unreasonably fond of certain tools...

This is my collection of chasing and repousse tools, which I use almost every day. The first few were made from tool steel, and the rest are made from Allen keys, straightened out, ground and polished to shape, then hardened and tempered. There's something about tools you make yourself that seems to make them especially useful. I rely on these for chasing and repousse, riveting, stone setting, and anything else I need to get into small spaces for.

...What are your favourite tools?
