Dale, that is a basic beginner activity that is covered in just about every
beginner level blacksmithing book. Have a look at the following books and
sources. This is a "canned" reply I have, so the books may or may not have
chisels in them. You will have to look.
1. Lindsay Publications Inc.;
2. Norm Larson Books;
3. Centaur Forge Ltd.
117 North Spring Street
PO Box 340
Burlington, WI 53105-0340
4. Bibliofind Internet Book Search;
(Amazon.com product link shortened)
This should probably be your first place to look because you often can get
used books at extremely low prices.
1. "The Art of Blacksmithing"
by; Alex W. Bealer
This is more of a blacksmithing history book, not a good hands-on book
until you are an experienced smith.
2. "The Complete Modern Blacksmith"
by: Alexander G. Weygers
Ten Speed Press
This is an excellent hands-on book that will show you how to make all
kinds of good things.
3. "New Edge of the Anvil" or the older version "The Edge of the Anvil"
A Resource Book for the Blacksmith
by: Jack Andrews
Top of the line beginner's book, and an excellent reference book once
you are an experienced smith.
