What is the function of hand tooling?

Hand tools are essential implements used in manual operations.

Craftspersons rely on them for various tasks, such as chopping, chiseling, sawing, filing, or forging.

Here are some common hand tools:

Hammer: Used for nailing and shaping materials.

Vise: Holds workpieces securely.

Measuring instruments: Includes rulers, dividers, and squares for accurate measurements.

Electric power tools: While not strictly manual, they perform tasks like drilling and sawing.

D.W Taiwan also provides lots of hand tooling.

Remember, the presence of a cutting edge characterizes most tools, and toolmakers continually seek improved cutting edges.
