  • This item: Stanley® Sweetheart™ 4-Pc. Socket Chisel Set $119.99

Stanley's premium Sweetheart 4-Pc. Socket Chisel Set is based on Stanley's classic 750 Series chisel design, making this collection an instant classic! Socket chisels are less likely to break than tang chisels, but the socket design makes it very easy to replace the stock handle with one you've turned for a custom, comfortable grip. All chisels are 9" long. Honing recommended before use.


Features:
  • Hornbeam handles provide a comfortable, well-balanced feel that transfers energy effectively when struck by a mallet
  • Large sweet spot for striking accuracy
  • English tool steel blades are made from high-carbon chrome steel and ideal for woodworkers
  • Sweetheart chisels sharpen easily and retain a razor-sharp edge over long periods of use
  • Side bevels are extra narrow for working in tight corners when precise cuts are critical

A cut above!
I have used many a chisel in my woodworking and I must say, these are beautiful! Once they arrived, I had a chance to observe them and I loved what I saw. They required very little prep before using.

Wanted something more balanced than construction grade chisels (which give decent results)

Are these a replacement for the Stanley 750's?
Robert N on Oct 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: no
how do you set the handles on these chisels?
steve n on Oct 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 1. Make sure the wood cone that fits in the chisel isn't too long so that it hits bottom before the wood cone sides gain purchase on inside of the steel cone. If it does trim the length of the wood cone a 1/16" (2mm) or whatever to avoid the wood handle cone from bottoming out.
2. Set the steel blade over the cone of the wooden handle, grab the assembly by the handle with the steel blade pointing up, and give the pair a good whack by striking down on a solid surface. Include a bit of wood, if needed, to avoid damaging the heel of the wood handle by if striking a concrete floor or steel vise ;-)
3. Take a look at where the shoulder of the wooden handle meets the steel socket. There should be a gap there of 1/16" (2mm) or a bit more.
4. Since wood breaths, the moisture moving in or out can cause the taper of the cone part of the wood handle to swell or shrink. If you set the handle on a humid day in the summer, you might find it gets loose in a basement shop in the winter since the air is so dry. So from time-to-time they may come lose. If so, just reset as above. I also look at it providing a bit of a clutch if you get to turning the chisel perhaps more than you should when using.

Good luck, Jack
are these a 30 degree angle chisel?
John H on Apr 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes John...I'm a retired machinist and I can tell you they are exactly 30 degrees and well worth the price.
