Had some time today to
start the comparison between wet forming a wood form vs an actual tool.
i know for a fact that the actual tool is best when a specific tool is to be used but i would like to make one that can work for more shapes of pliers. to try a compromise i picked an old pair of Cee Tee pliers
(my favorite, the newer ones after being bought out are inferior)
with wide jaws to make if fit all pliers with a smaller jaw profile.
also i have to add that i really like the look of wet forming over the actual tool. to be able to see some of the details of the tool itself is an attractive aesthetic.
i would rather do this test at the same time, then to do one at a time.
looking forward to getting to the end product.
