You should keep in mind that this is a 3/4" shank as most CMT's are. I also have the 3/8".. 1/2".. 3/4" as I do a lot of A&C carcass work.. work-bench's and various sizes are required for mortise and tenon and mortises to recieve accent pieces on the A & C. The 3/4" shank is not a problem on my Industrial floor mortiser but if you have a standard floor mortiser or bench-top.. make sure it accepts the 3/4" or have a bushing that will adopt to accept the 3/4" shank!
After this initial tuning the bits are performing good. The bits are holding sharp edges well and eject chips good without any overheating. I wish CMT could decide if they are building long shaft or short shaft Augers though. The 1/4" Mortise chisel and a few sizes up, they are long shaft, but larger sizes like 3/4" and 1" are short shafts. This is not really convenient if one needs to change sizes often, as it requires me to remove the chuck from the Mortiser to put a spacer in for short shaft chisels, and remove it for short shafts.
Would I buy them again? I would take a look at Powermatic and Lee Valley chisels before making the decision.
Pics below show chisel before and after polishing.
On this one I find that the auger bit is somewhat "weak" and may not be adecuate for heavy duty applications, but being so small and thin, I think it would be difficult to make it sturdier. (Might be a good idea to have a replacement on hand, in case it bends or breaks)

The tool is fine, however, you must have a mortise machine or mortise set for a drill press to use it. As an old shop teacher I should have remembered that.Published 20 months ago by kenneth thompson
I'm making model boats and this would not even cut soft thin wood on the first try. I wonder if the drill bit was even hardened . . . in China!Published on April 21, 2013 by Robert
This bit bent after the second mortise cut. This is a cheap piece of junk. Do Not Buy! Seriously Do Not Buy!Published on March 25, 2013 by M. Mills
