Chisel Set: $36.50; Bench Hook: $6.75

Photo of catalog #127 - chisel set
Chisel set, #127.

This 6-piece chisel set is made in the USA by the U.J. Ramelson Co. of Newark, New Jersey (who have been making these tools since 1937).

The set includes two V tools, two gouges, and two chisels (one straight and one angled). Please note that most retail stores with similar prices do not include a second V-tool and a four page instruction sheet as I do!

I ship the set with two pieces of 2"x4" basswood for you to practice on, and an instructional sheet that covers chisel safety, use, and sharpening. You can purchase additional pieces of basswood for $0.65 each.

Bench Hook: $6.75 - For added safety, I highly recommend using a bench hook with your chisel set. Bench hooks hold the wood in one place on a bench or table, which prevents slippage and promotes safety when using a palm chisel.
