I’ve also had this problem with my chiselling work, and I thought it was about time I turned to the experts in search of a solution.
I often times want to “square off” a slot that I’ve cut with the router into a piece of wood, such as when you’re doing M&T joins…
What almost invariably happens is that, rather than ending up with a vertical edge, I end up with a steeply sloped edge (this picture shown cross section)...
The chisel I use is mid-range. I’ve sharpened it several times and the cut is clean, just not vertical. I’ve checked that I have the chisel vertical, and it seems to be so.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance for the pearl(s) of wisdom that will solve my problem.
