Working on ‘Alice’ – Usually I’m wearing a huge mask, and you can see I’m being showered with little chips of stone in a dust cloud. I use a nylon mallet, which shouldn’t be so misshapen, but for some abuse with the wrong chisels. Hammer headed chisels have a very small end to them which leaves dents in the mallet when you are really hitting it. Mallet headed ones are best but this mallet has served me well for 23 years and has a few more million hits in it yet (as long as the handle holds out)!
