Find all ten words described below.

-------------------

The first word you'll need
is a tool used to snare.
Reverse and add one:
a dwelling filled with fresh air.

Append the letter H
to find a metric sort of part.
Now change N to E to get
a smile, at its heart.

Tack on an 'I N G'
to make a baby's cross to bear.
Remove the center two
and find a golfer's action there.

Add an S and drop the E's:
A painful bite you'll see.
Add one to the end: you will make
penny-pinching, miserly.

Put first 2 and last 2 out the door,
What's left is really cool.
Only keep the first half of that
And now you find the fool.


Hint

When it says "add one" or "remove the center two" it is always referring to letters.

You will probably have to work forwards and backwards to get all the words.
