Try tuning up the stock chisels first. As they come from the factory, they're
not all that great, but with a little bit of work they are much improved.
First polish the outer surfaces of the chisels, being careful not to remove
any more metal than is necessary. Then get the conical diamond hones that Lee
Valley sells and hone the inner surfaces. Finally, hone the cutting edges of
the augers good and sharp, and try them out. You'll be surprised how much of a
difference it makes.
