Today I had to mount some new tooling to an assembly fixture at work. One problem, there was metal in the way that would have been easy to remove on a milling machine but I can't fit the fixture in the mill nor take the time to rip it completely apart to transport the detail that needs rework.
So, I resorted to those cold chisel things that came with my assortments of pin punches. I read once that key ways were often cut with chisels so I figured hell, I've done some woodworking with wood chisels, I'll give it a shot.
It worked out better than I thought it would but now I pose the question. Back in the day when they actually cut a key seat this way, what did the chisel look like at the pointy end? Like the typical cold chisel or more like a wood chisel? Hell, anything informative on the subject of machining with a hammer and chisel would be interesting.
Sorry for the on topic post but I can't resist asking.
