Default PZ: IRWIN Marples Chisel

Thanks for the lead from Jason's Price Zombie site, there is a good lead on a
Marples 1/2" chisel on Amazon.

http://www.pricezombie.com/viewprodu...-2-inch--38mm-

If you have never used a Marples chisel you are in for a treat.

Looking around the Amazon site it looks like they have other Marples chisels, wallets, etc. on discount.

Go to it woodworkers!

Nice...I've got a whole set of those in the wooden box and I know I paid more than $10/ea for them.

The box does have the brand on it but it is covered with a "DO NOT TOUCH" label for the benefit of those who pass through and would use them crudely.

We've picked up some very nice chisel sets at auctions and have quite a collection. I also inherited some from my grandfather. Something about them makes me purr.

What is with people who can pass through your shop and think they can use your tools?

A few years ago the neighbor was building a float on a trailer. He had many helpers some of them teens. There were some nails and staples on the floor Of the trainer that needed to be pulled or pounded down.

So, this child decides to use the flat polished face of my ball peen hammer. WTF?

Who said you could use my tools? Don't you know the difference between a ball peen hammer, a claw hammer and a "fence tool"?
