Hello. I need a Ray Iles mortise chisel. I cannot seem to buy one online and wondered if anyone has one they would let go. I don’t mind “over trading” as I know they are hard to find. I have a set of Robert Sorby carving tools, Benjamins Best mini turning tools, and a #6000 waterstone with Tupperware box.

Please let me know. Thanks.

There’s plenty of other mortise chisels just as good.

Why this one? I don’t get it.

I’ve got a set of Narex MC’s and they work just great.

Are you a tool collector or something?

Thanks for the reply. I just really like the 1/4” I have. I have bought some off ebay and they are not that great. Not a tool collector, just a user. The TFWW site has been out of stock for some time now in the 3/8” that I need. I like the “pig sticker” type.

Have your say...
