I use this for squaring up corners in all sorts of jobs not just door hinges , its very versatile and robust , gives a nice clean cut every time not had to sharpen in yet after much use , good product standing up to regular use , if you need one highly recommended .

3.0 out of 5 stars Not overcome.
Did not find it easy to align corners up. May be with a little practice things could be better. Will try it again sometime. Value wise fairly good.

A good tool, well made and quite robust. Needed final sharpening, but that is normal for cutting tools. Takes very fine edge and keeps it well despite being hit with hammer. Cuts nice and square. Well packed and delivered Ok.

4.0 out of 5 stars Takes some getting used to, 7 Sep 2012

Found it difficult to use when cutting out the corners for a mortice lock as it is just wider than the hole routed out, but works OK on the hinge cut out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enough to make a strong man weep?, 26 Oct 2013

This review is from: Silverline 282403 Corner Chisel 70mm (DIY & Tools)
I was asked (told) to replace every internal door in our house. I rebated the latch and hinges on the first door by hand. It took hours. The doors are oak and the wood hard. The latches required an unusually deep rebate.

I bought a router to rebate the remaining latches (with a home-made jig). The router of course left curved corners on the rebates. Using this chisel - one firm hammer blow - squared them off perfectly. This - with the router - was so quick and simple in comparison with doing the job by hand I could have wept!

As other reviewers have said, the chisel does need to be lined up with care. As the rebates were very deep, I trimmed the chisel frame with a hacksaw to increase the available depth to help align the chisel. This was straightforward to do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good but recognise its limitations, 28 Dec 2012

This review is from: Silverline 282403 Corner Chisel 70mm (DIY & Tools)
This is a robust and well made little tool and cuts hinges and any small routed recesses well. It will however, not cut mortices, other than for the initial squaring guide cut.

The only alternative, the Trend corner chisel, which is much more expensive, actually says, 'For squaring corners for hinges', in big letters, on the packaging, (if you visit the Trend website).

Perhaps the ad for the product should point this out.

This review is from: Silverline 282403 Corner Chisel 70mm (DIY & Tools)
Bought one of these from Toolstaion, absolute waste of money. It was cleaner and easier to cut corners with a craft knife.
