Hook up the hose with a nozzle on the end. The shorter the nose, the better. Shut off the incoming water supply. Open all the hot water faucets in the house. Make sure the nozzle is closed. Open the

The above suggests most of the chisels are as they came from the manufacturer. Out of the box, most chisels won't hold a decent edge, so you need to flatten/polish the backs. Google "Scary Sharp". On

I also prefer oil stones for regular sharpening, but most chisels initially need significant material removed to flatten them, so "scary sharp" is a good way to get them lapped flat and polished init

Looking at the pics, the barrel is not level. The water sitting on top of the barrel suggests the overflow side is on the high side. My guess is the overflow is an inch or two higher than it would be
