Ok, I’m going to try to revive this thread Al.

After working on a wedding gift this weekend the cheap chisels I have are not hacking it. I’ve decided on the Ashley MK2’s. Now with a budget, I am thinking about trying out three sizes.. 1/4, 1/2, 1” to start. I know I want the 1” because I use my 1” for paring quite a bit.

Any suggestions on the sizes used most often? Should I go for a 1/8”? I want to try them out and bring the set up piece by piece as funds permit. ( I also want to get an Incra TS-LS and have money set aside for that when it goes back on sale) so I can’t afford the full set now.

Mads.. did you get your MK2’s ? how do you like them?

I was looking at the Narex but they only come in metric and all my tools are standard.
