Pay attention to the following points when purchasing woodworking chisels:
1 Look at the shape. The carpenter's chisel has a thick shape and a thin shape, so you can choose according to your own use. The thick chisel can be used to chisel hard wood or thick wood, and the thin chisel can be used to chisel soft wood or thin wood.
2. Look at the appearance. Generally, the woodworking chisel produced by the factory is carefully processed, exquisitely made and polished. The chisel made by a private blacksmith is generally not finely processed, so the surface of the chisel is rough.
3 Check whether the chisel pants, the chisel pants, the chisel body and the front of the chisel blade are on the same centerline, and whether the chisel pants, the chisel body and the side of the chisel blade are on the same centerline. If the above two points are met, it means that the chisel pants, the chisel body and the chisel blade are positive. After the chisel handle is installed, it is also positive. It is easy to use, and it is not easy to shake the hand.
4 According to the cutting edge, the quality of the woodworking chisel and the speed of use depend on the cutting edge of the chisel, commonly known as the steel edge. Choose a chisel with a hard steel mouth. It can work quickly and save labor.
Teach you a simple and easy to use method to select chisels with good steel edges, and other tools with cutting edges are also applicable, such as knives, scissors, axes, etc. Put the chisel blade close to people's ears, and use your thumb's nail to slide down on the slope of the chisel blade. You can hear the sound of copper with a residual sound, indicating that it is a good steel mouth. Be careful not to hurt your fingers.
