Re: Turning chisel handles

Unless I was in a big hurry I would turn them 1/16 to 1'8" over size on the diameter and bring them in the house and set them in a sunny window for a week or two. Weigh them first and see if they lose weight. When they stabilize, turn them t finished size. Leave the center mark on them to make it easy to remount them.

If you are in a hurry you could play with the microwave as John suggested or Put some in a regular oven at about 200* and let it cool overnight. You could turn two and try one of each. Let us know what works.
