We all have junk in our shops that we don’t use or no longer need. My junk is sometimes a bit unique, but it’s junk none-the-less. I’m cleaning out my shop, making room for more junk and I’ll probably drop some on ebay. I won’t post links to my auctions because I think that’s icky. But not all junk is created equal. I have 4 sets of old chisels I’ll auction off but I wanted to give you first dibs. The prices here will be either the reserve or starting prices.
These may not be reasonable low cost solutions to your chisel needs. These are VERY old chisels after all. But I learned a great deal from examining and using my old chisels. They exhibit a few features that no chisels offer today for reasons I do not understand. I’ve not been particularly influential when it comes to chisel design. Maybe you will have better luck than I have had.
These old chisels are square sided, or at least they appear to be until you look closer.
