Topic tags/keywords: chisel new stanley 750 chisel

I know that stanley has re-introduced the 750 chisels and Christopher Swartz has revied them but nowhere has anybody said where they can be bought.

Are you referring to the Stanley Sweetheart chisels that were just “released”? I believe those are coined as being “based on the 750’s design”. If that’s the case, Highland Woodworking has them.

I did some checking, and those are the new Stanley Sweetheart chisels (http://www.finewoodworking.com/item/35192/surprise-landing-stanleys-new-sweetheart-chisels-have-arrived).

As mentioned, Highland Woodworking has them.

Watching this thread. The “just released” sweetheart planes are a total letdown, in my personal opinion. I hope they don’t do the same thing to the 750. I REALLY like Stanley 750’s.

Bertha, the Schwarz just reviewed them a bit, here and here

Not a full review, just a bit of blogging about getting them set up. I have a feeling a real review will only appear in the magazine.

Thanks for this, Swirt. I love the Mighty Schwartz. I like how he describes the poorly tuned chisels as “weird”. It doesn’t look like I’ll be buying these. As much as I love the old Stanleys, if I were in the market for new high quality chisels, it’d be Japan or Lie Nielsen.

I just purchased them last week at The Woodworking SHow from a Stanley rep. They havent arrived yet, I talked the guy down to 80 bucks for the set, I think lie nielsons are double that price.

Adam, I’d have jumped on them for $80 too! Even if I had to regrind them totally, it’d be worth $80 to me.
