Thumbs up I received my FatMax Chisel set today

Stick, I just opened up my new chisel package and I am so happy with it that I can’t even tell you. It even came in a case, a plastic one but I’ll make a wooden case for later this year. I think I’ll keep the formed plastic divider for the chisels and fill it with something underneath. I’m not sure yet but maybe spray foam.

Sometimes that Stick fella comes up with some good stuff, and almost makes you think there's a nice guy under that crusty outer layer.

And other times ..........

We luv ya Stick!!!!

For Pete's sake Richard. Didn't your old man teach you anything?

Those chisels aren't for cutting nails...they're for opening rusted paint cans.

Well yes, that too. But you need to grind the corners off a bit first to be able to do a really good job on pointing.

At every turn of the last posts, I felt the hair creep up on my neck. But then, once ruined, you can get em cheap and run them through the WorkSharp and voila, like new.

Tom, I've been meaning to ask you.

Other than the somewhat high price...have you found any shortcomings with the WorkSharp system so far?

I received my chisel set also. The label on front says made in England. They seem real nice. I sharpened all of them on the Worksharp 3000.

Thanks Stick. This is a cheap option for some nice chisels.

I also have the Worksharp 3000 and used it for the first time within the last couple of weeks. I also bought some more sandpaper.



I have not sharpened these new chisels yet, but it took me a long time to sharpen my old chisels because they were chipped and also out of square. I used to use this sharpener below and they were pretty bad.



For a while there I thought maybe Vince and Keith used them but after further checking I realized they’re both from Canada which is a little far from me.
