Handle Letters are Brass Tools where Each Letter/Character is Mounted to its Own Handle so Individual Words and Titles can be Formed Letter by Letter. This is Useful for Tooling Curved Surfaces or Other Areas where Traditional Type Cannot be Used. Birch Handles are Used on All Tools to Resist Splitting; while Tangs of Slightly Smaller Diameter are Used so as not to Interfere with Sighting and to Reflect Heat in Applications where Using Heat is Required.Larger Sizes of Type are Engraved on Domed Heads and Cut Close to the Letter Form. Small Letters are Filed Closely and Back Along the Shank, to Create a Tool with Perfect Sighting thats Easy to Use. And, Finally a Sighting Line is Machined Square to the Face to Aid Alignment. This 40-Piece Set includes: A to Z and 1 to 8 as well as a Period, Comma/Apostrophe, Ampersand, AE & OE. An Extra Birch Wood Handle Completes the Set.
