Stanley Sweetheart Socket Chisels
By Dan from Asheville, NC on May 25, 2012
Very happy with these chisels and the purchase through Tools-Plus was great. The price was right and the delivery was fast.

The chisels themselves were of excellent quality. I did have to spend a few hours setting up the tools. The handles needed to be reseated and the blades needed to be striped of the lacquer. The quality of the steel was very good and the factory set on the angle was very accurate and consistent across all the chisels. The most time was spent on polishing the backs and honing the blades (water stones using the David Charlesworth method).

Overall I would recommend the Stanley Sweetheart Socket chisels and eespecially Tools-Plus as e superior vendor.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Very High Quality
By Chuck Wilson from Atlanta, GA on February 15, 2014
I wanted a high quality chisel set for a long time. I considered a couple of other brands but I could not find anything that compared when looking at quality vs price- plus i really liked the idea of the socket chisel design.

I received the Stanley set very quickly from Tools Plus. Initial fit and finish was excellent. They were reasonably sharp right out of the box. The set included a very nice leather chisel roll. I suspect the tool roll itself would sell for $40-$50 if sold separately.

I then began the process of flattening and sharpening. Every single one of these chisels flattened very quickly, a testament to the accuracy of the manufacturer's machine work. The cutting edges honed up razor sharp. In all honesty, I have not owned or used these long enough to say how well they will hold their edge, but I can say that the steel seems to be of very high quality. One thing some people will complain about... They have a lacquer-like protective coating that is very tough. I simply ground through it on mine.

High quality materials and craftsmanship
Made in England
traditional Stanly 750 design
accurate machining, excellent fit and finish
I wish they were a little longer in length
These are metric sizes.

Stanley 16-793 8 Piece Sweetheart Socket Chisel Set
By Deese from Pittsfield, MA on December 4, 2013
Quality Chisel Set Well-Made with High End Materials and Finish - Very Competitive Price Point - Prompt Safe Shipping Arrived Quickly. Purchased as a gift so can't really comment on how they feel to use or what was required to get them honed and ready to work - however with close scrutiny they certainly look like a solid value to me.
Quality Materials and workmanship - fine finish

I would recommend this item to a friend.

All Good
By Tom from Metairie, LA on June 23, 2013
As described, good value, quality tools, shipped when promised, delivered on time
Pretty much everything
The handles are made of hornbeam and are well crafted. But the English version of hornbeam is lighter weight than what I'm used to. But works just as well. I'd buy it again. I know, "picky me".

I would recommend this item to a friend.

I have been on the lookout for affordable chisels for some time. I got these babies out, sharpened them up, and put them to work. These are the best chisels I have ever used! I could not be happier. Well worth the money.
