If you're building a carvel-planked (plank-on-frame) boat, you've gotta have some of these for driving the cotton between the planks.
Choose from three sizes:
Size 1 is 6" long with a blade thickness of approximately 1/8".
Size 0 is 5-1/2" long with a blade thickness of approximately 1/16".
Size 00 is about 5" long with a blade thickness of approximately 1/32".
Think in terms of steel wool... the more zeros, the finer, and the 1 is the thickest. Many folks do a little grinding on them to make them the ideal size for their project.
came on time, great piece of tooling to add to my kit for wooden boat building!
Works great. I've just ordered the 0 and 1 sizes as I have some wide joints to caulk.
The caulking iron is in the traditional form and appears well it made.
