Ingersoll Rand Chisels - 5-Pc. Set, Model# 9500
All I want is BANG BANG BANG
If you've ever used an air hammer/air chisel before, you know that the bit is really the driving force. I picked up this assorted pack because I really only needed the flat chisel tip but the cost of that one was more than half the cost of getting them all, so I got them all. I'm glad I did. The pointed bit actually comes in handy a lot more than I thought for separating stuck tools and fittings. Both of the notched bits come in handy too for locking down against screws and nails and sheering them off. I only gave his a 4 out of 5 stars because the bits themselves are starting to chip up at the ends. They can be re-sharpened with a grinder but I wish they were made of a harder metal, considering they are being used for hammering constantly on metal.

took the cutter blade to try out, as soon as it hit the sheet metal it broke.

Didn't live up to their name.
I picked these up in store to aid in replacing front end parts on a Chevy 4x4. The only two chisels I needed were the straight blade and the point. I'm no expert but the straight blade had a pretty lame edge on it and by the time I was done the edge was really gnarly... to the point where I would have to grind it to use it again. The only other chisel I needed was the pointed one, but unfortunately it wouldn't fit into the air hammer... I pulled out a digital caliper and measured the shoulder of the pointed chisel to find it was about 20 thousandths bigger than the shoulders on all the other chisels; for kicks I measured the shank too because it looked a little thin... turns out I was right and the shank was about .380 or 20 thousandths smaller than the .401 shank these are supposed to be. I'm going to attempt to return these for refund. The straight blade did it's job (barely) but I had to get another set elsewhere to get a pointed one that worked, and I think the straight blade should still have an edge after cutting 6 mild steel rivets.

A good value
They're Ingersoll Rand, what more needs to be said? A quality product that does what it's designed to do. They don't lose their edge like most of the imports. When paired with Nothern's great pricing, it's a value that's hard to beat.

Nice set. High quality. Longer tool length and more substantial than the standard inexpensive sets that come included with a standard air hammer set.
