I recall reading an article on sharpening chisels in a recent magazine, the writer advised spending alot of time flattening the back of the chisel. I checked over by stock of chisels from the last 50 years and considered they looked flat OK. Last evening I read an article in a woodwork book advising the same operation (but using wet and dry paper on glass), I got fed up watching another football match within the hour on TV so I went out to the workshop and choose my favourite chisel and worked on the back for twenty minutes, WHOW WHAT A DIFFERENCE THIS MAKES , my chisel cut hard wood like scissors cutting paper.
I'm going to spend some time on my other chisels during the next three weeks.

HI Devon

Certainly is worth the effort in my experience. Glad to hear you have been converted.

Cheers
