I’ve been tuning up some large mortise and tenon joints lately. It’s probably the dry February air, but I was having a heck of a time with the handle of the 3/4″ chisel staying in it’s socket. In his post here Chris Schwarz recommended hair spray to help hold on a socketed chisel handle. When I asked around the other night for hair spray, we were fresh out. So I tried some spray shellac. The handle hasn’t moved since.
