Sharp on arrival.

I have not had time to work on a serious project with these chisles yet, but the were ready to go when they arrived. They are sharp and seem well made and strong for their size.

Love them

Got these when a bass came in with a completely messed up not slot.

The original nut didn't fit at all, but on top of that, was heavily superglued in. It left a huge mess, and before I could re-shape and re-cut the entire nut slot, it had to be thoroughly cleaned out. The hardened, caked on glue came off easy enough with some careful chiseling using these tools. I used the smallest size and it worked like a charm.

I've also found these to be helpful for trimming down doweled pickguard screw holes. Small, sharp, precise tools are never a bad thing to have around when you do guitar work, and they come in handy for way more than the cases I mentioned here. They also have been holding together well, no signs of looseness, and came very sharp.

These little gems are sharp and perfect to clean and square up small areas. Removing old glue in the nut slot was a breeze.

Great lil chisels

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I've had my set for close to 2 yrs now and use them almost daily! Very handy, but need a lil tweaking to get just right. The angle is off a lil but easily fixed w/ the set of diamond sharpening blocks I also bought from StewMac. Another issue is the handles come loose but a drop of StewMac super glue is all that is needed. They may seems a lil pricey, but they've definitely earned they're keep. I'd be lost w/out them!!

Not as good as expected

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Not so great: The chisel itself is not secured to the handle, and the grind angle is too steep for detail work.

When you apply any pressure at all the blade spins in the handles on all 4 chisels I have. The metal used seems very soft when compared to other quality chisels I use. The angle on the chisel if pretty high and requires resetting to be effective.

I was able to use them, but not until they were tuned. The chisels still spin in the handle however.

I have purchased a lot of tools and fixtures from Stew-Mac and these are not of their typical quality.

They are a good product. Not easy to just get chisels like these either. They are small in a good way, sturdy and sharp.
