Chisel Champ

One of my favorite tools is one that protects several of my other tools. It’s a very cheap chisel. You know the kind: They’re often found dumped in a cardboard bin by the checkout counter at the hardware store. Buy one and hang it so that it’s closer and easier to reach than your good tools. Then when you need to scrape glue off the floor, paint off tile, or open a can of wood putty or any of the scores of other tasks for which you really don’t want to use a good tool, you’ll have a quick and easy answer right at hand. And, if you do end up damaging it beyond repair, it’s no big no loss – just throw it away and replace it with another. Your good tools will thank you for it.
