Item #69544 3pc wood chisel set.
Great buy! $5.60 after your 20% coupon.
Been beating on the 1" chisel for almost 3 months doing a basement demolition and remodel. 800 sq. ft. Lots of notching for pipes etc.
Still sharp enough to mortise a door hinge by simply pushing chisel.
No, not as good as my Sandvik set, but if I drop it on the concrete, or hit a nail - nothing lost. Haven't even touched the two smaller (1/2" and 3/4") ones.
No connection to HF. Just an old fart creating a separate living unit in daughter's basement. Yes, with a building permit.
Seriously? Some zones do not allow building or additions with out
permission. Imagine adding a room onto your home, in the basement,
maybe a bedroom with no windows. Try to sell the home and have to
remove the room because of code violations.
Granted some things do not need a building permit but it is prudent to
check before construction begins.
Yeah, some people live in commie jurisdictions. Most wouldn't know
the difference unless it can be seen from the outside (Google Earth,
and such, have become popular by tax assessors. That's really the
key. They want their taxes.
Depending on what it is, I might get one but never for internal
I would if I added more finished space or a bathroom, or such. Never
for electrical modifications, partitions, sheetrock, or such. When I
finish the basement I'll keep the ceilings open, which will make it
technically "unfinished space" (no bathroom or heat, either) so I
won't pull a permit.
When I sold my Vermont house, I had to pay a special assessment (close
to $5000) to call it a three bedroom house. The builder permitted it
as a two bedroom, though it clearly has three. There was a special
school tax based on bedrooms, so I got nailed. Really dumb.
i also like the shaft going all the way through the handle rather than
#69471 or #42429
i have a leevalley set but they came sharped with a micro-bevel and
use them once in a while so they are still sharp
with these hf ones the leevally ones will be saved for careful work
