    Hi Fred

    OK, that is clearer now.

    Actually you do not want a 1/8" chisel! You will be better off with a wide chisel, say 1"+. The issue here is not the chisel, but the best way to form a...

    George, you're right. I am overreacting .... just a smidgeon, mind you. :) Some of the comments, however, were just ignorant, and I should not be reading these while writing reports.
