When I first started working in the handyman field my idea of a chisel was a straight screwdriver with a big and long handle. Soon after I realized it was both an accident waiting to happen and a sub par tool that gave awful results.
A job that I get asked to do all the time is to adjust a door latch or lock that is no longer closing properly. It’s either sagging hinges, which require hinge anchors. Or a more likely cause the frame or foundation has shifted a bit and the latch itself needs to be moved. To do this properly, quickly, and safely a chisel is needed.
So I picked up a small store brand chisel from my local hardware store and it was my go to for quite some time. However it got beat up banging around in my tool box and more than once bit me when I tried to dig it out.
So yet again I was looking for a better solution to my chiseling problems. On Instagram one day I saw one of those cool tool postings and found this Stanley Folding Pocket Chisel. It’s more than strong enough to take a pounding from a hammer, but it folds up securely making it safe from biting me and keeping its edge in pristine condition, expect when I hit a hidden nail in the door jamb.
This is the type of tool that just works and works well. As well the Stanley Folding Chisel satisfies your inner 12 year old who used to carry around a folding comb and pretend it was a switchblade.
