ALF's reply covers it really.

The thing that takes a bit of getting used to is that fact that you are looking at the point of the chisel, but hitting the other end, so you are not really looking at what you are hitting - requires practice. Expect a couple of bruises on the hand holding the chisel to start with!

Once you get the hang of it, it is actually quite surprising how good a finish you can produce.

Good luck.

True about knocking your hands with the hammer. Always worth considering getting a chisel with a guard like this:

Yes - but where's the sense of adventure in that? :?

It would be like riding your mountain bike with stabilisers on! :shock: :D

Actually, once you have walloped your hand a couple of times, it is amazing how quickly you learn not to!!!

All you need to do is set the chisel up and watch the end you are hitting, as an alternative position yourself so that you can observe all that is going on. :D

I have found that the sissy guards are a menace in use :wink:
