    What Chisel is This?

    I was poking around in an old tool box a mate left for me and found this. Some type of cold chisel?
    Anyone know the specific use? Looks like a few good hits in it's time.
    Length= 250mm, blade width at widest point= 30mm, blade thickness= 4mm

    Yup. one very good quality cold chisel.

    have used similar to pinhole shafts on sawmill, so pulleys fit tighter.

    pinhole is not the correct terminology , Will think of the right words tonight about 1:03

    If I recall from my paper mill shutdown maintenance crewing days (too) many years ago now, it is a 'cape' chisel and I saw the old fitters cleaning keyways on shafts and gears/cogs/pulley's with them.

    Very much like a plugging chisel to remove old morter from bricks. How it is meant to work;

    Why a plugging chisel? - YouTube
    Im pretty sure the dinosaurs died out when they stopped gathering food and started having meetings to discuss gathering food

    A bookshop is one of the only pieces of evidence we have that people are still thinking

    Yep, used for getting the mortar from between bricks to get the first brick out of a wall.
    Haven't used mine for ages.
    Some of his friends have also not been out much lately.
    Cheers

    Yep, I was going to say for removing mortar from bricks, I'm pretty sure I have one left behind when our chimneys were rebuilt.
