Anywho, up until recently my bench chisels have been garbage. I made a step in the right direction with a couple of new Stanley 750's. They are light years better than my Footprints. I have also rehabbed a couple old Craftsman chisels. That left one Footprint that needed to be ditched...the 1/4". I'll let my poor photography tell the rest.
|Ta-da! O-1 steel 1/4" bevel edge chisel. After a couple of months on back order. I kinda feel like Garth when he finally had the cash to buy his Strat.|
|It's hard to photograph the sides of this thing. The flat edges are around .020". That's good for getting into tight areas.|
|This shot better shows that fine edge. The primary bevel is precisely ground to 25 degrees. This thing did some good slicing right out of the box.|
|LN on the left, Footprint on the right. Notice the clunky side bevels on the FP.|
|The same two chisels from the top.|
