View Full Version : HELP Arbortech power chisel

27th Oct 2019, 07:42 PM
Hello everyone, I have a few Arbortech tools and enjoy working with then. I make small sculptures and mainly use them to add texture and sometime carve.

I have a ball gouge, a turbo plane and just got a power chisel.

I've just tried to make a few cuts using a gouge chisel on the power chisel and I'm having a few issues, if I make a deep cut (not very deep), the initial cut is fine but when I pull the chisel back up the timber gets ripped. I've attached a photo so it's a bit clearer. I've sharpened the chisels and tried to pull very gently but the timber still rips. Am I doing anything wrong?

Thanks, Oli
