If you do any door hanging, this is a must have. Many commercial hinges, bolts, etc. have square corners. Often, even doors mortised at the mill shop come with rounded corners. I would never be without a corner chisel, and the Porter-Cable is the best I've used. At less than twice the price of the lesser-quality imports, it outlasted 4 of them so far. Definitely worth the price.

After reading mixed reviews of the corner chisel I ordered one anyway. I am a contractor specializing in finish work and it seems like most of the door hardware I use lately is square cornered. The tool works good at cutting and it usually removes the chips at the same time. Sometimes you just have to lift the chips out of the corner after they are cut. The only drawback that I found was the striking surface is rounded and can cause the hammer so slip off after hitting it. But the corner gets chipped out anyway, (I just hit it with the flat side of my hammer). If I was doing production work I would probably modify it to give it a little bigger footprint for more stability, and a longer body for better grip, and a longer stike to keep the hammer away from your hand. Overall, for a pocket tool, it is well worth the cost. I wish that I had ordered one years ago.

When I first looked at this I thought, "How can it know the exact corner?" But it does. When routing out a template guided area for example, leaving a rounded corner, you park this in the corner, one decent whack with the hammer, and to my surprise, a perfect corner. It is a very simple device. It's a 90 degree blade that slides along a very thin outer shell-guide.
No more chisel-chisel-chisel, and difficulty getting the exact angles. It works as advertised. Saves a lot of time, and does a superb job. Highly recommended.

I saw this advertised in a tool catalog ten years ago. I kept thinking I should buy that, it is a good idea, I hang a lot of doors, and that would save time and make my radius jig cuts clean right up. I remember the torment I felt when I would cut a corner off square, too vain to fill it, I made painters come behind me and make me look good. Not any more... I am now perfect with my perfect corner maker. Buy it now don't wait the ten tormentuous years I did.

If you've ever installed door hardware with square latches and latch plates in a house where all the doors arrive with radius mortising, you'll recall how much time you lost chiseling out every corner of every mortise. Buy this tool. It's cheap and simple to use and is definately not a gimmick.

This is one of those tools that is so simple, but makes such a big difference in the time and finished results of hanging doors, cutting in lock sets, etc. Well woth the money, no serious carpenter should be without one.

This corner chisel worked very well. I use it for many things but the main reason for the corner chisel is I convert old wood window screens into windows by routing a rabbit for the new glass to go into but I need to square the corners. That is were the corner chisel comes in, it just takes seconds.

I don't know what other reviewers are talking about. This came pretty dang sharp. I was using it in a 3/8" deep grove in oak and it made a perfect corner in just a couple whacks.

I do want to mention that the base of this is wider than it appears. My groove was 3/4" wide with a 90 degree turn made with a router. I couldn't fit the chisel in that corner space. You would need at least 1 inch of space to fit this properly. I was still able to cut a corner but it was at a slight angle. Not a big deal for my project but something to keep in mind.
