    Powerful 710W motor with high-speed reciprocating action does the heavy work as you guide the chisel through the wood. Cuts just like a traditional chisel, but with greater speed and ease. Provides the highest level of detail and smoothness on letters, lines and highlights, yielding crisp, clean cuts, whether in soft wood or hard wood. Especially well suited for large scale work, which would be impractical to carry out by hand. Smooth-running camshaft ensures minimal vibration. Reciprocating action will not start unless the blade is pressed into the workpiece. Tool includes high-pressure lubricant, 20mm flat chisel and 20mm #7 gouge.


    Features:
    • 12,000 strokes per minute for a powerful, smooth action
    • Sealed bearings for a long working life
    • Chisels snap in quickly and release with the push of a button
    • All wear-prone parts are easily replaceable

    (1) 20mm (3/4") Flat Chisel
    (1) 20mm (3/4") #7 Sweep Gouge Chisel

    Arbortech power chisel
    Because of my hand injury (from several operations) I am unable to grip hammer / chisel So I turned to this power chisel and it has been a godsend I am able to work on things like door hinges door locks and I have used it to do name plates and several signs. Works perfect.

    It works!
    What I really like about this tool is by holding the actual chisel which you do not even feel it moving you have great control over the cut, and with sharp chisels it really removes material!

    Amazing Tool
    I received the Arbortech Power Chisel yesterday. It's German made and it is an amazing tool. The chisels and gouges are extremely sharp and made of good steel. I played with it on a piece of Red Oak and each chisel and gouge cut smoothly. I am please with tool and the 3 extra bits I ordered. I do wish I had spent the extra $30 and bought the large set of gouges.

    Works well but something is missing
    Haven't had a chance to really get into it yet but with playing around with some scrap wood, looks like it does what it's supposed to do. My problem is the absence of a hard case...Arbortech could have done better than that. You have here a $200+ power tool, not some cheap, off-brand rotary tool that you pick up in the bargain tool house for $9.99. You need to provide your own storage case of some sort, not just for the tool but for the chisels as well. I bought the set of five extra chisels...not even any plastic protectors on the ends such as you find on even the cheapest set of hand chisels. Arbortech...You need to do better than this.

    Power Chisel
    I haven't had a chance to use it much since I've only had it a two weeks. I find it a little heavy and awkward in length. It is unnerving you have to stop and oil it every 15 minutes. The very limited variety of chisel sizes and shapes is a definite drawback. My big concern is when and if I have to replace a chisel I cannot buy just a single chisel I have to buy a whole set again.
    With that said I believe it will take some getting use to and I hope I get to master the use of it soon.

    Waiting for replacement chisel
    One of the chisels arrived damaged even though the packaging did not appear damaged. Arbortech is sending me a replacement, but it has been 2 weeks. I think Arbortech is making it right, but it is taking a while. The chisel damaged is the one I need, so haven't really evaluated the power chisel, yet

    This tool appears to give more fine control over the chisel than using a mallet to tap on a conventional chisel.

    I already have a small power chisel that I like the ease and speed of carving with. Now I am moving up to larger scale projects and need a larger more powerful chisel. I wanted a power unit that is more precisely controlled, safer to use, and won't spew chips all over the shop like the rotary wheel carving tools. The option of a variety of chisel profiles is another bonus.

    Can this item work on volcanic rock?
    Bev P on Jan 21, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: Way open ended question. Volcanic rock varies from pumice, which a dull knife can cut, to obsidian, which is basically glass. In between are rocks like granite (mostly quartz), to andesite which is a medium hard rock.
