Oh my. I just happened to stumble across this. Very strange.

I bought these sets from Michael yesterday folks. My first quality chisels. Very happy. Nice guy. Still haven’t told the Wife.

Seller changed his mind about selling bench chisels alone and did not respond to further communication.

Oops. I had no idea there was controversy here. I saw the ad on CL and offered to buy them. Tonight, I was randomly browsing the LJ FS and saw the ad. I apologize for any ill feelings of confusion. Especially to TopamaxSurviror, who appears to be holding a serious firearm.

I would not say serious. The post said it was “strange.” I just said, yes, it is “strange.” That is my #7 jointer ;-)
