Reply To: Bevel edged chisels


Morning Joe. Sorry it’s a late reply. Don’t touch the sides of your chisel it will change the width. It’s good if the width is a standard size. Twisting in the mortise is a problem because when the chisel twists the chisel is wider between the edges than when its straight. It’s not much but does chew up the sides if you don’t control it. Try taking small cuts when things get tough. Don’t let the chisel twist in the cut or in clean out. That’s why Paul uses a smaller chisel to clean out.
