Although it looks very much like their brick set, this floor chisel from Stanley has an entirely different purpose. You use a floor chisel, sometimes called an electrician’s bolster, to remove flooring. The long narrow blade is designed to get between floorboards, cut through tongues, and pry up the loosened boards.
Stanley makes this 11″-long chisel with a 3″-wide offset blade that they harden, quench, and temper to increase the operating life and make the tool safer. They finish it with a powder coat to protect the metal, and they fit the handle with a bi-material ergonomic hand guard to protect your hands from errant swings and absorb some of the shock of hammer blows.
Next time you need to remove a floor you might want to spend the $10 to $15 for one of these chisels.
