    Stanley Finds A Groove With New FatMax® Short Blade Chisels
    FatMax® Technology adds Increased Cutting, Durability and Longevity

    SUMMARY: Stanley introduces the FatMax® Short Blade Chisels and adds to its extensive and innovative FatMax® hand tool family. With a unique friction welding process and ball-bearing grade steel, these new FatMax® Chisels provide increased strength in the neck area where common breakage occurs. The blade is constructed of hardened and tempered high chrome, carbon alloy steel enabling the blade to stay sharp for longer periods of time and substantially improved edge retention. Designed for resisting tough impact and treatment, the ergonomic bi-material handle has a steel striking cap allowing the user to work with a steel headed hammer. The new FatMax® Chisels bring the innovative traditions of the FatMax® line to those who demand and rely on high performance hand tools.

    LAS VEGAS, Nevada, January 19, 2004 – Stanley proudly introduces the FatMax® Short Blade Chisel, an ideal tool for the dedicated woodworker who repeatedly requires perfect grooves, crisp carvings and timesaving precision when using their tools. This new line is available in a three- piece or six-piece set or as nine single chisels. Each chisel features a full-length blade protector to act as a safeguard during storage.

    Each FatMax® Short Blade chisel is friction welded for a stronger blade and improved performance. The high-quality ball-bearing grade steel allows the chisel blade to stay sharp longer unlike forged blades that require more frequent sharpening for edge retention.

    The new FatMax® Short Blade Chisels are designed with ergonomically designed, bi-material, high-impact handles, for better comfort and grip providing improved control during use. The handle also features a steel-striking cap allowing the chisel to resist tough impact, treatment and

    an ability to be struck with a steel-headed hammer. Each chisel has a descriptive etch mark displayed on the blade that clearly identifies its size.

    The Stanley® FatMax™ Short Blade Chisels are available in ¼” – 2” sizes and available in a three-or six-piece set or as nine single chisels. All pieces come with a re-usable full-length blade protector. These sets are currently available wherever Stanley® tools are sold and have a suggested retail price of:
    • 3pc set - $24.99
    • 6pg set - $54.99
    • 9 singles - $8.99 - $14.99
