Air chisel bits

Any suggestions on a brand of air chisels,, the bits, not the actual hammer, that get the job done? Thanks, Fred.

Re: Air chisel bits

Mayhew has done well for me. Have some matco I got when I was still under the student discount many years ago and they all still work great. What are you hammering on?

Just frame rivets that hold brackets on.

Re: Air chisel bits

Cut an X in them with a cut off wheel first, then chisel away. It will go a lot faster that way.

I have snap on chisels for my air hammer. I have to sharpen them every so often.

x2 on method and snap-on bits .

or if your real good with a hot wrench like me pop the head and leave the bracket un-touched and pop the guts when hot and good to go .

Re: Air chisel bits

buy the best quality you can put your hands on but still be cautious of all of them!

I have a brute cp hammer that takes the full .5" shanks that I've broke a lot of heavy truck frame hucks and you name it with..

but I've got a couple of scars from well made tools also so be careful!



busted chisel carnage.. took two doctors over an hour to dig it all out and a couple of stitches to close it up..



I've also got a small scar, about 1/8" on my left cheek from tool splinter busting the ends of a drag link on a rig..

that one went to the bone, only dripped a little at first but didn't swell up until next day..

guys at work confirmed the fragment was still in there with a magnet, pretty gross watching it roll my cheek around..

doc located it with paperclips taped to my cheek for the x-rays and got it out with only tiny scar..

thankfully, my modeling days are long gone, lol..

good luck!
