Different shapes are possible, and the registration bumps on the tool let you automatically extend a decorative line or row, otherwise very hard to do with chasing tools. More complex patterns can be placed between the registration bumps allowing complicated rows of marks. The same idea can make rope-like lines of marks. Tool steels, sources and hardening and tempering are addressed. Chain tool information is not addressed elsewhere. This is a step-by-step photo book.
