I got that chisel for $2. Will need a lot of work to be back to working order but due to the size, weight and being old …. OK that was an old hand tool … I could not really leave the place without it.
I have no idea of the brand, how old it is or what it was used for. It has been used hard.
The chisel is 43cm (approx 17”) with the handle. The blade part is about 20cm (7 7/8”) and the “socket” is about 13cm (approx 5”). Just the body without the handle is over a 460g (approx 1 lb). It feels indestructible.
The back and side of the blade are pitted
The back of the blade is not fully straight on its full length. It’s ok flat on the first 15cm (approx 6”).
I will restore it at some point. I am not sure how I will flatten the back and sides. Whit my an extra coarse DMT it might take a very long time. Will think about it
If you have any info about that chisel I would appreciate to know more a bout it. Especially what is was used for sur to its size.
