I'm in the market for a couple of larger framing chisels, and I'm
hoping to find them cheaper than the $100+ offerings from Sorby, Barr
et al... I almost bought a Keen Kutter but it disappeared off of
eBay. Are there specific brands to avoid?...to look for? Any good
sources of info? Just hoping for some thoughts. Thanks.
Witherby is excellent. I have one.
Read up. Learn brand names of quality chisels, both old and new. Know what
they're worth before you see them, and haggle, haggle, haggle. Some of the
old stuff that you can pick up for a buck or two is just as good as any new
stuff that's $50. Educate yourself first, then to shopping.
I bought an old Buck Brothers 2" bench chisel that seems to take and
hold an edge nicely. Haven't done much work with it yet though. Too
bad I didn't have it before that last job...that seems to be the case
