Welcome! Now with a picture of all those chisels, there should be a few pictures of some of your work to go along with them. :D

Charles,
the last photo with the heart and dimple.... is it a die for punching out hearts? If so could you show us the punch that goes with it ?
Yes thousands of words so neatly stuffed into a few pics... ThanksPosted Image

DICK, GOOD QUESTIONS.

THE HEART IS DONE BY CUT CHISEL,
Posted Image

THE DIMPLE IS PUNCHING BY PUNCH CHISEL, SEE THE PHOTOS FOR REFERENCE.
Posted Image

CHISELS ARE MIAN DIVIDED TO TWO KINDS, ONE IS A CHISEL CUTS THE METAL AWAY AND, THE OTHER ONE IS THE PUNCH, JUST PUSHES THE METAL OUT OF THE WAY, BUT DOES NOT REMOVE IT. THANKS FORD FOR THE HELP ON DESCRIPTION BY ENGLISH.

WELCOME OTHER QUESTIONS.

I don't think that the word newbie should be in the title of this thread. If you're a noob than that means I have to live up to higher standards...

Really, beautiful work. Are you self taught or do you have a mentor or teacher?
