Marples chisels: trying again

Bill Houghton, Sebastopol, CA
I owned some Marples chisels, purchased new, back in the 1970s. I found them frustrating: they chipped way too easily. So I got rid of them. Today, at a moving sale, I gave in to temptation, and purchased a full set of Marples chisels with boxwood handles, nearly unused although a touch rusty. We'll see if I have the same issues, or if I'm smarter now and thus better able to use them.
