    New Veritas Flushing Chisel Handle & Blade Sets

    I'm sure most of us have a flush chisel of sorts but this set looks pretty interesting;

    Find the set here.

    On the couple of occasions I have wanted to trim something I could not reach with a regular chisel I have used a regular chisel bevel down.

    I guess I'd rather they offer a decent set of thin blade Cranked Neck Paring Chisels instead. Only Narex seems to make those now and they're too short and too thick.
    Sharp solves all manner of problems.

    Craftsman Studios lists cranked neck chisels by Buck Brothers. I just looked and they show as out of stock. I have never tried them.

    I've been using prototypes of these for a few years now. Very handy chisels when there is a need.

    I have also added a long, Japanese-type slick handle. I'll post pictures at some stage.

    Regards from Perth

    Those would be a nice addition to your kit. I have often posted that my Woodcraft crank neck chisel is the cheapest but most used chisel in my shop. Here it is cleaning up a glue line on the current bench build:

    It never leaves the bench and is used for everything but opening paint cans.

    BTW, I like the fact they are firmer style.

    But, but, but Hilton, these are in inch sizes! Doesn't that go against your style?

    Kind of interesting for a modern crank neck style chisel.

    The mass in these chisels will help when paring. The broad flat backs are nice too.

    Jim, I'll just have to make sure all my plugs are sized in inches or I'll be buggered (double entendre intended).

    Hilton; will you be using those flush cutting chisels for woodwork.

    Driving around in Johannesburg is relatively safe, though carjacking is still fairly common. The best way to avoid any problems, make sure to keep doors locked and windows rolled up at all times. Should you park in a quiet or secluded area, be careful getting in and out to avoid potential thieves waiting to take your car.

    There are plenty of safe places to go in Johannesburg as long as you follow the safety tips. Public transport shouldn’t be used because it’s not safe. As long as you remain in large groups and keep your eyes and ears open, you can have a great trip to Johannesburg.

    Perhaps but to give you some perspective this is what I carry in my car along with a Mora in the glove box, a leatherman on my belt and a CRKT folder in my laptop bag.

    Becker BK2, all 1/4" of persuading steel.

    I am sure they are excellent quality, but I feel like I do about a lot of Veritas tools--they seem a little over-engineered. The removable handle seems like a needless complication.

    For some this might make it easier to transport a few chisels for work outside the shop.

    For others it might be the option of installing a special purpose handle.

    For me some old Buck Brothers crank necked chisels do the job quite well.

    I assume it was to save costs as well, only one handle u must buy
    if u want a handle for each chisel, buy extra handles.
    Great offering, this is on my BUY list....
    Kudos to Robs team for continually designing high quality ww tools at competitive pricing....
