Lodge Chaplain & arms dealer
The Common Gavel from the tool set at Ozaukee Lodge is flat on one side and tapered to an centered edge on the other an is tiny (being that it is symbolic that make sense)In the Emulation Rite the Common Gavel and chisel are specifically mentioned in the same sentence.
“ … the common Gavel to knock off all superfluous knobs and excrescences, and the Chisel to further smooth and prepare the stone..." Both the common Gavel and Chisel are chisel instruments for cutting stone. The chisel here is specifically stated 'to further smooth' which is a more refined finishing Chisel for use by one with more skill.
This where modern Masons and public become confused with the term Gavel. The 'common gavel' of a stone mason IS NOT the same as a 'judiciary' style gavel (wooden hammer) used at club and Lodge meetings.
