Hollow Square Mortise Chisel

Size: 5/16 inch [7,9mm]

Most mortisers are equipped to handle 1/4", 3/8", 1/2" and 5/8” square chisels.
Converted to metric: 6,35mm, 9,5mm, 12,7mm and 15,9mm.

Some are even capable of handling a 3/4" chisel, but keep in mind that this is a pretty healthy chunk to cut at one time and may require a lot of physical exertion. Remember that even if you're cutting a mortise that is 3/4" wide, you don't need to cut the entire width in one pass. A few cuts down one side of the mortise and then back up the other with a 1/2" chisel will be just as effective and not nearly as taxing on you as the operator.

Advantages:

  • Faster than a chisel by hand
  • Consistent in size
  • Strong joints
  • Reliable joints
  • Looks good
  • Large glue surfaces enhancing the strength
  • Convenient
