    Hollow Chisel Mortiser 1st use.

    This was my first time using my new shop fox hollow chisel mortiser. Well the thing bit me !! Well the chisel bit me while i was installing it Well as i fumbled around for the First Aid kit I noticed the plastic cover for the bit. Is this to be installed on the bit while you install it. Where were you guys on that one Well I figured out that those chisels are really sharp the hard way.

    lesson learned .........tooling weather power or hand is generally sharp and testing said tools edge quality with body parts can be painfull...

    Mine first experience with the mortiser was similar. Now I keep a glove nearby and a piece of scrap wood to hold under the chisel while I'm fitting it to the machine.
