>I read the thread on hook tools with interest. Have any of you made the hook tool described at http://www.aroundthewoods.com/hooktool.shtml ? There is also a link on that site to video of the tool in use. I know this involves masonry nails, not tool steel, but access to cheap materials means they can be mass-produced in the shop to make up for any breakage... of course, they're still not carbide, so they'll get dull faster.
