WoodRiver - Cranked Neck Chisel Plane Set
Unique crossover design makes for an extremely useful tool. Although not truly either, the offset handle permits the short chisel blades to glide along the surface like a plane removing excess...
- Set consists of 1 handle and 4 interchangeable blades: Diamond Point, Straight, Left and Right Skew
- Hardwood Handle
- Blades are 1” x 1-3/8” Mn65 Spring Steel
- RC 56-60
Almost never used
The cranked neck chisel set is well made, attractive, and in a needed blade shape. Unfortunately it only has one handle that the user must manually swap from chisel to another. In practice, this is time consuming, an irritant, and an obstacle to speedy work. For those reasons, I seldom use the set. Other sellers overseas offer the same set of chisels but with a handle mounted to each chisel: three chisels, three handles.
Good Set - Needs Sharpening
I don't know if it is fair to review something I haven't used yet. My initial thoughts are this set will be very useful in my tool arsenal. My only "con" is they need to be honed to razor sharpness. They came out of the box just "OK" in terms of sharpness. Other that that, I can see using these in corners, triming dowels or pocket hole plugs, etc.
Tool is working well to clean small spot
With a longer handle it would make it easier to hold in your hand. It's short handle, for me makes it slip in my hand. A small case instead of the box would making it a lot better to keep up with all the parts. I think there are seven parts to this tool. It works well in cleaning up corners and edges when you need a light touch.
