• Before installing, please check if there are sundries and bumps on the chisel body, and make sure the chisel body is smooth and clean.

• When installing the 3 in 1 woodturning tool chisel on the cnc lathe for wood, the hold-down strip must be used. Whether the blade is installed upwards or downwards, the hold-down strip must be fitted with the blade. Otherwise, the chisel blade is easy to get fracturing.


• Before installing the blade part, please check carefully to ensure there is no anything on the blade. When installing, the blade and the body part should be fit together completely, and should not have any gap.


• Blade installation should hang out the knife body about 1 or 2 mm, but can not be too long. Otherwise, the blade part is easy to break.
