I gotta drive 800 miles round trip to try and catch a seasonal sale for some crappy chinese chisels or some guy with 5 posts judges me? Lol, I think I'll keep my mid grade Marples, Narex and Stanley. Thanks ignore list, I'm done here.
This is your first post in the thread. Nobody is judging you.
Here is my translation of your post, quoted above:
* "I live too far from an Aldi store to buy their chisels that only appear seasonally. Besides, those Chinese-made chisels are crappy anyway."
My comment: I suggest you read Aesop's fable about "sour grapes." Furthermore, at least one well-respected woodworker (Paul Sellers) likes and recommends them. Quite honestly, I was not impressed with them myself.
* "I prefer my mid-grade Marples, Narex, and Stanley chisels."
My comment: Thank you for your recommendation. I am sure that @Rhaugle
appreciates your suggestion and will consider them.
* "You can ignore my mid-grade chisel list, because I am leaving WoodworkingTalk."
My comment: Sorry to see you go, but I think you misinterpreted everyone else's intent in their posts.
