Jonathan Salisbury looks at another batch of accessories and jigs from Wood Workers Workshop, the first of which includes this set of handy silicone chisel guards from AUKTools.
I really like these: chisels do occasionally fall off the bench, or get knocked by other tools, and it’s always a good idea to cover edges if they’re being transported with other tools. The only downside I can think of is that they can’t be bought individually, and I need more of sizes 1 to 3 than 4 or 5. Also, the £12.95 price tag seems high, although if you think of it as just under £1.30 per guard, this doesn’t seem so bad! The only alternatives available on sale are just like the originals – and not much cheaper – or a lot smaller and unlikely to be as secure; I know which ones I’d prefer to have.
