Missing some chisels
« on: December 06, 2017, 10:30:44 AM »
Hello all. I have a set of Stanley No 40 everlast chisels in the original cavas roll but 3 of them are a little different than the rest. The majority of them ( 8 pieces ) have the SW emblem and 3 patent dates stamped in the shank. The 1 1/4", the 1". the 1/4" and the 1" do not the same markings and I'm missing the 1/8" size. For those of you who may have John Walters book on Stanley tools they show up on page 176 as the 310 set.If by any chance sombody has some of these I'd sure be interest in a a trade or a purchase. Thanks, Jim.

Hello bird, good to hear from you and sorry about your loss.
 I had to google Butt chisel as I wan't sure what the actuall definition is, the info I found says a butt chisel has a blade less than 4" long, so , to answer your questuion, no these are not butt chisels. The set I have vary a bit in length, probably from sharpening over the years. The longest is 10 1/2". My Stanley book calls them bevel edge cabinet chisels. The blabe is about 5 1/2" long,the shank about 2" and the handle around 2 1/2". The shaft extends up thru the Hickory handle and has a steel cap and what looks to be some sort of cushion between the wood and the steel cap which is about 1/8" thick. I don't know what the cushion is made of, it has a bit of give to it and  kind of looks like a black hard rubber spacer. I can't tell how these were assembled maybe the top steel cap is screwed on?
 My post is a little messed up, what I need is a 1/8" a 1" and a 1 1/4" Chisels with the SW logo and 3 patent dates. I'll go dig out the camera and see if I can post some pictures. Thanks Jim.

Jim, I think this is one of the three patents on your chisels. It should help with understanding how they were made.
