ATC Tool List

 DSCF0907

We are only a week away from beginning the Anarchist’s Tool Chest at Warwickshire College.  With that in mind there have been several queries from delegates who want to know which tools to bring.  Helpfully, Chris has put up a list on his blog here.

But here is the list anyway…

Dovetailing Equipment
Dovetail saw (15 point or coarser)
Cutting gauge, such as the Tite-Mark
Mechanical pencil
Dovetail layout square (Or a bevel gauge and smallish try square)
Coping saw with several blades (coarse blades, 12 tpi or so)
1/2” bevel-edge chisel
Mallet (I like a 16 oz. model)
Two pair of small dividers

Planes
One bench plane, such as a jack, jointer or smoother
Block plane
Rabbet plane or shoulder plane (if you have one)
If you have a tongue-and-groove plane (or match planes), use them
Beading plane (1/8”, 3/16” or 1/4”)
Plow plane with 1/4” cutter

Nailing equipment

Rip saw (4 to 7 ppi)
Your personal sharpening kit
