        I use them as fillet forming tools. Usually heated and used to form wax fillets in foundry patterns (old-school).



        In this case the fillet running between bow plane structure and bow. Mom was a jeweler -- I took her stuff when she died.

        I love old school tech specially when I don't have access to a CNC machine or 3 D printer. You sir are what the Japanese call a "takumi" or master artisan.
        Make it simple, make strong, make it work!

          I've been called a lot of things in my time (most of it justified).

          But this ain't no frig'n 'art', pal.

          I'm a ****ing Craftsman. Period.

          'Art' is a throw away word today denoting anything you don't understand, but don't want people to know that you don't know. Elephant **** on a painting of the Madonna does not an Artist make!

          If it is not practical, it has no worth.

          CAD and CNC is for no-talent, lazy, unskilled pussies!

              NEVER underestimate the power of a Sailor who served aboard a submarine.
