When hunting for new tools to excite you with, I came across these Nicholson Wood Chuck combination chisel and rasp tools.
I don’t think there’s anything new about these tools – there’s a blue-handled version on sale elsewhere – but thought it would make for a good discussion topic.
What do you think about this type of tool? Is it useful to have a rasp surface on the front of a chisel, or you would rather have separate tools?
Now, before you answer, I should remind you that these are probably not designed for fine woodworking work. I’m guessing they’re used for general purpose type tasks, where chisels, files, and rasps all come in handy for quick work.
According to the product description, they’re aimed at any woodworker or handyman.
The handles are impact-resistant, and also have a steel strike plate.
I have a 4-in-1 rasp (you can buy one for less than $10 at Amazon), and it’s a handy wood file. But it’s also a bit wide. This has me looking at the small and medium sized chisels in this set, thinking I could use those.
The 3pc set comes with 1/2″, 3/4″, and 1″ chisel sizes.
