Default How do I make cone shaped or tapered hole?

I sharpened some of my chisels today and I want to make a holder for them to hang in but some of my chisels have tapered shafts. I made a holder for my craftsman chisels in 1971, but they were straight shafts. I lost a couple of them and bought Stanley which doesn’t fit my old holder.

Thats an interesting idea Keith. I hope you mean putting it into a drill motor because I'd be afraid to try to route it.

Well, I think you could use a router on a new piece of wood...not on that holder that you have now.

Otherwise, you could use something like a Japanese saw, or even a dovetail saw to re-cut the one you have now. I think I would be inclined to make a new one, after all, you're going to need it bigger than that when you get that new set of chisels!

I was just looking through my router bits and found a bit with about the same taper, but not sure how to do it. I guess I could make two pieces on my router table and glue them together. I could then cut the opening after the glues dries.

I'm not sure the shape of the hole would matter that much as the weight should hang by the base of the handle. If there is an issue with how well they stay on the rack then I would embed a 1/4" rare earth magnet in the body of the holder behind each blade. Lee Valley sells them cheap by the 10 pack and someone else posted a source for 100 that was dirt cheap.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I do plan on making a new one because I still think I may find my other craftsman chisels.

Thanks Charles, I just bought some earth magnets from Lee Valley, but if I'm going to use magnets then I would be better off using a magnetic tool holder which I might do
