Re: Turning chisel handles

William Duffield
A metal ring transfers forces from the mallet to the chisel more efficiently, but also wears out your mallets more quickly, especially if you leave any arises in the striking surfaces of the hoop. The wood or other material you select for the mallet head can make a big difference in how long the mallets last.
