These farm implements have hung in the Dale’s living room for over 20 years. They have been collected from various sources. Many have been painted or altered but will be used to enhance the displays in our barn at the Bradley Museum. The Dale's are long time volunteers at the Museums of Mississauga.
Chisels are a very old tool and have been used for thousands of years. Chisels help to shape parts and cut joints precisely as compared with axes, adzes or saws. There are a variety of sizes and shapes for many specific jobs. For more information see:http://www.history.org/Almanack/life/tools/tlchi.cfm
