Hello to all. I Live on Vancouver Island and am having a heck of a time
finding a good quality set of cabinet makers chisels. I would preffer
second hand, something well used (and well care for). If you have anything
please contact me. Thank you
Please don't make this mistake. They are soft and will require
resharpening too often. Marples may have been good in the past but
today I consider them junk.
I replaced mine with Lie-Nielsen chisels recently and the difference is

They started shipping small quantities a while back. There is a list of
folks that expressed an interest and it is being serviced, apparently in
the order we signed up. They are nice.
Lie-Nielsen was at the Sacramento Woodworking show this weekend. They had
a sample chisel there, and indicated that they had started shipping from
the pre-order list. They took my order, and indicated 6 to 8 weeks
IIRC, US$250 for 5 chisel set, with leather tool roll.
I'm tired of messing with my Blue Chips. These are LN quality tools.
Dave Dave Dave, I have never flamed you in the past and I give you a little
ribbing and you explode like a Hiroshima A-Bomb. Take a Chil pill.
PS. Thanks for calling me a Moron. Coming from you that is a compliment.
well then, let's REVIEW: 1) you claimed NO ONE pays
attention to my posts. hmmm...is that a sh*t stirring
comment or not? decisions, decisions, ah...YUP! it sure is!
2) I don't flip-flop. that's a mis-statement (read: LIE) on
your part which is due to your inability to know a
tongue-in-cheek comment when it slaps you in the face. I
have been anti-Marples from way back; why would you think I
said Maples are ok, all of a sudden? I was just being silly
sarcastic when I said that guys here "swear by Marples". I
nearly followed that with "and I swear AT them", but I
thought that would be clear enough to anyone following this
NG. You DO follow this NG, don't you??
You are just trying to take up where the other miscreants
have realized it was smarter to leave off. Please join them.
