Two Cherries - Zwei Kirschen brand made in Germany and some of the finest woodworking chisels money can buy.

I bought the same one and had the Same results... Lots of noise but no sanding. It works better with the power turned OFF! This belongs in the SHAME pile.

I bought it because the head is a 2" triangle, thinking it would be good getting into small places. But, I've had no luck with it. In fact, it did nothing to the wood I was working on. Wondering if I got a lemon or if this tool is destined to become a $40.00 paperweight.



We bought this to help with refinishing some cabinets and we had the exact same experience. A whole lot of noise, but not a bit of sanding. I should have taken it back.

I bought the Harbor Frieght version. It has its purposes - but its not something that I would say is required in your tool box. Works fantastic on tile and aggregate!

I bought the $100 Dremel MultiMax/MultiaMate (whatever the heck it is). What a piece of junk. Must say it sanded well while it worked. The power switch went out once and I shipped it back (paid by me) for repair. It broke again for good about 2 weeks later. Please buy another brand... I see lots of competitors out there now.

I saw some Stanley Goldenberg gouges (made in France) around 7 of them #8 through #25 at an estate sale today. They were asking 12 bucks each but they'll be less tomorrow are these worth getting? And if so which ones? They also had the chisels, will they be necessary or will an old basic set of Stanley's be good enough? Keep in mind I'll just be starting to carve a real beginner. Any thoughts?

I think I would get all the gouges, even at $12 per.

Thanks Bill, but by the time I got back today they were all gone, gouges and chisels. So what should I do buy a gouge as needed or a small set of flexicuts? I know this has been talked about before but the info is scattered all over and I don't know if you can use a mallet on flexicuts. Also what I'm thinking of carving are logs.

aloha, tikicoma

I would suggest the Flexcut 4 piece sculptor set, it's what I use the most, other than a Stanley 2" flat chisel. I also have the Flexcut 6 piece starter set, and a few other gouges I bought individually.

Thanks Bill, I really appreciate your reply. I'll take your advice. Also the log I've got right now I think is cypress, will it be hard to carve? (not a lot of palm in Washington)

aloha, tikicoma

I've never used cypress, but Jeff (pjc5150) loves the stuff. Check with him.

cypress is great when it's still wet. carves like an apple. AND it lasts forever outside.

and I second Bill's chisel advice. the flexy 4 piece sculptor set and a flat stanley carpenter chisel will pretty much get the job done without you spending a mint I have them also. But I've also got about a thousand bucks worth of Pfeils that are my real preference...

I use the www.arbortech.com TURBO Plane for taking the bark off and its amazing. Better then a chainsaw in my opinion.
I use the flexcut 4pc sculptor set for carving. The chisels feel a little cheezy but for the price, they do what I need them to do.
