  3. Question about Striking / Tooling Sticks

    I don't know for sure. These are photos I collected while doing research on how to make the striking sticks.
  4. Question about Striking / Tooling Sticks

    I've picked Katalox for my attempt at making one of these striking sticks. It has a Janka hardness of 3660 and I estimate the finished piece should weight in at somewhere between 2.5 and 3 lbs.
  5. Question about Striking / Tooling Sticks

    My current collection. As I am sure you can tell some I prefer over others. There have been some that have come and gone. Usually to someone that felt more in-tune with them than I did. I am really looking forward to trying my new creations, once they are finished. Tane

  8. Question about Striking / Tooling Sticks

    Thanks for the input Chas. I will try to post some pictures. I haven't figured out how to do that yet. I have several mauls and rawhide mallets. I'm just interest in trying new ways of doing things. To make sure i'm not missing something I might like better or that could improve my product.
  9. I’m here to confess my curiosity about Stricking / Tooling Sticks, along with my lack of knowledge about them. I am hoping this community can help me to understand the construction and use of these sticks so I can reproduce one or two for myself. I am very excited to try tooling with one. I have some these sticks that similar to a maul. Others I’ve seen are 18” to 20” long. Some with both ends square and a handle in between, others with square end and tapered to the opposite end. I’m somewhat confused as to the use of the longer version. Questions: 1). Is the extra length just there for counter balance? Also used like a maul? 2). Or is the extra length used of the lever point, using it and the elbow resting on the table as the pivot point? I have purchase enough Katalox I believe to make a long and a short version, but need your help/input before I can make the first cut. Thank you Tane
