Questions & Answers

Is this item manufactured in a specific country?

Though I don't know where it was made, it is very well made, so I assume it had to have been made in the U.S.

What size is it? Three millimeters or one eighth inch? The height is 118 and the width is 1/8". There is a 7/1000 difference between 125 and 1000. There are times when it does not matter, so why not just provide accurate information consistently?

There are cheaper tools manufactured in China as well as a tool manufactured in the US. The tool measurements are stated in inches since their biggest market is the United States. It is actually 3/8" thick when used with this 1/8" chisel. The height of the ladder is 175 millimeters. They probably left out the 0 in their calculations. For the product description, try making it a bit more appealing by using 175 mm

This chisel's cross-section looks as if it was made with a sharp blade How can a rectangle not be ?

It is our pleasure to serve you. As a company, we strive to provide the most professional work. At the cutting edge, the chisel should look as square as any other of the other chisels we have. Occasionally, the bottom of the handle can round off near the neck where it is attached to the handle, but that is regular.

Have you been lucky lately, LOL? Could that be right? Since practically no protection is offered by their packaging for nigh any and all products, I indeed assumed that I might have to "grind away" this bottle to make it work
3/5

Oh my gosh! Not at all. There was only a plastic carriage (? -) like the plastic cases at big box stores, i. e. Can you explain? It has been a strange few I say, "Bwahaha!" It has been a frustrating couple weeks with sellers on here. Please keep your fingers crossed that things turn around soon. In this case, it was a chance taken by default. In other reviews I thought there was bound to be some amount of rework in the film There is grinding to be done. The more I look at it, the more I want to buy another one. However, I have not performed any "power" testing yet, rather I have only tested it on some hardwoods like White Oak, Cherry, or No really chiseling needed. I was surprised it did not chip so I decided to smack it once or push it twice to see if it would snap in half. So far so good, not sure what other people will experience with this.

The way they were used to be has changed
3/5

The chisel disappointed me in a big way. There is only an eighth of an inch of width here, and the ends are not square. After they were sharpened, not much work was needed to square them up and make them shine. There was a decent amount of flatness at the back. There was something disappointing about sharpening up such a narrow chisel, but I wondered if it may be due to its narrowness. After I use it, I can tell if the blade is soft. In addition, I do not like the fact that it Marples' chisels were ovoid shaped, which meant they did not roll off work surfaces and made it easy to detect if an angle was being applied. The handle and blade are both round, so getting a bit of angle at the end is very straightforward. The plastic layer of plywood, which contains resin layers, does not appear to alter the sharpness of the 1/8 "dice after some 1/8" dice are carved out of softwood. It's not the price that I'm complaining about, The town is not called Marples merely because it has an additional name attached to it.

There is a cross at the center An unsquare section of this chisel can be observed
3/5

A few others have pointed out (and posted a picture) the cross-hatching on the ribs of the shoe There are some areas of the chisel that are not There might be a problem with that depending on the use you want to make of it. As a mortiser, I would not recommend this. I found that the edge of the chisel wasn't perpendicular to the chisel and was not sharp. It took me about 15 minutes to get it fixed and sharpened on the back. In the meantime, it will serve me well until I decide to purchase.

As a good reviewer, I only give 5 stars to good products, but I would have given no stars if possible since the chisel was There was a bend in it! I bend in back slightly, but the finish is Harbor Freight level, not that good
5/5

I have Marple wood chisels from the Irwin, mine are older and I'm not sure who makes them now, but it features a poorly finished, soft, bendable surface. In the modern world, he is just a name.

The set I have already includes sizes down to 1/4", so I wanted a 1/8" chisel to add to the chisels I have
5/5

I've been doing little projects out of material that's 3/8" thick and doing mini post and beam type of things. I wanted an 1/8" chisel to do the A host of more expensive chisels are available, but I have the 1/4", 1/8", 1/6, and 1/8" That was to be There are no differences between the length of the two Irwins in the line) did need the bottom flattened and the edge touched up. Yet, it works like a charm and at the same time complements it's bigger and more advanced brothers.

Keeping an edge at all times
4/5

Despite the challenges, I am pleased with the outcome. As far as sharpness is concerned, I was able to achieve it. Dovetail cuts are made easier with this tool. It gets inside those strange angles and gets out those pieces in the corners without cutting more than you need. There is one drawback to the chisel, however, and it is the edges. They are sharp, so if you hold it along the side of the metal, you will not be able to fit anything between the two nails. As I said, I never thought I'd get a cut that way but I did, and I just had to sand it off a bit. One thing I wish it had was a cap to protect the tip.

I like the steel for the price
5/5

It appears to be made from decent steel, but I'm not sure what to make For some reason, it just feels light to me, like it might be hollow and thin. You can get lifetime warranty on it (it says this). Aside from that, the design is good and it's a really good price. Due to the lack of chisels this small, I bought this to replace the set of much nicer chisels. It seems to be a good tool for getting started with woodworking. It is a very nice chisel for the price. Sharpens up very well and is pretty well machined from the outset. I wish the handle had a flat side to avoid rolling off the table. Otherwise, it is a very nice tool overall. The back and bevel can be polished nicely without too much effort.
