SAFETY & USE
A variety of Chisels are designed for use on stone, concrete,
Mason Chisels and Brick Sets are used for scoring and cutting
block and brick. Tooth Chisels are used to cut soft stone
and brick, such as Bedford limestone. Bull Point Concrete
Chisels are used for breaking up and drilling concrete.
All-Steel Wood Chisels, including Floor Chisels and Electrician's
Chisels are for rough cutting and trimming of both hard and
soft woods. They will also cut soft nails and wiring encountered
while cutting these soft woods.
Strike Stone and Wood Chisels only with a ball pein or machinist's
hammer. Never strike with a nail hammer, and always wear safety
goggles when using struck hand tools.
Brick Sets are available in 3", 3-1/2", and 4"
cuts. Mason and Tooth Chisels are available in 2", 2-1/4",
and 2-1/2" cuts. Concrete Chisels are available in 12"
and 18" lengths. Plugging Chisels are available in 1/8"
and 1/4" thicknesses.
A dull cutting edge may be sharpened using a common file as
described in our "Maintenance" section below:
- Always wear safety goggles when sharpening a cutting edge
and when ever using a striking tool.
- Rigidly support the tool being sharpened. Secure in a
bench vise if possible.
- Never use grinding to sharpen. This causes excessive heat
and may result in a loss of strength, durability and temper.
- Instead, use a file or stone of medium or fine grit and
file away from the cutting edge. This directs heat away
from the edge.
- The original contour of the cutting edge or point should
be restored. Brick Sets should be restored to a bevel of
45 degrees and Brick Chisels should be restored to a bevel
of 90 degrees.
Enderes Tools® Stone and Wood Chisels are forged and heat
treated using only the finest domestic high carbon tool steel.
They conform to all applicable ANSI and ASTM steel standards
for materials, physical properties and tests, including A29-79,
A322-80, A331-79, A576-79, and A681-76. All styles fall within
the appropriate Rockwell hardness ranges recommended by ANSI
and ASTM for their intended application.
