Got in the shop for a bit and decided to unwrap the @aldiusa
chisels. I think I first heard about these from @paul.a.j.sellers
as one of those diamond in the rough type of tools. These were pretty rough out of the package. The bevels are all weird angles and off center and it looks like the whole thing was dunked in polyurethane or something.
I ran these through the grits on the @worksharptools
WS3000 and although I need to replace the abrasives, they’re coming along ok. Still lots of flattening to be done on the back. One is probably just a glue scraper it’s so bad, but the others seem ok.
After honing them (final step after the worksharp) they did shave hairs and took off some maple end grain. I’ll have to try them out on some dovetails at some point. I do hope they work because the width measurements are just a few off from my @narex_cz
chisels and would be a nice compliment set. The jury is still out whether these $8.00 chisels are worth the effort.
