This listing is for a vintage used set of hard to find wood chisels. These are Hoppe Chisels made in West Germany. There are eight chisels that come in an 11 1/2” x 6 3/8” x 2 3/4” wooden carry case with clips to hold each chisel in place. Sizes are 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, 5/8, 3/4, 7/8, 1 and 1 1/4. The Hoppe name is stamped on each blade and a paper Hoppe label appears on each chisel handle. The chisel handles are of a light color wood topped with a leather washer. Chisels measure about 9 1/2” to 10” in length and most have seen little or no use. Blades are in nice condition with light tarnish or surface rust at spots. Some may need sharpening but tips have not been abused. Handles still show much of original paper labels. Some of the leather washers show signs of compression from being struck, but they are generally in pretty good condition. The most damage to the handles comes from the holding clips that have scratched the wood from removal and replacing in case. View condition of chisels in my photos. Box is solid with dove-tailed edges, good hinges and a good latch. Box has only light signs of normal wear or scratches. These items sell without reserve and “as is”. I do not take offers after the auction ends on items that do not sell. If you are interested in these items, make a bid. These items ship with a USPS tracking number, buyer may request insurance. I DO NOT SHIP OUT OF THE UNITED STATES. ***RETURN POLICY*** On items I sell I try to provide as much descriptive and photographic information on condition, size, known damage and what it is you are buying as my space and knowledge will allow. I try to provide as accurate information as possible and will try to answer additional questions when asked, if possible. If an item is listed as untested or unknown if item works, it is usually because I have no ability or means of testing it, not that the item does not work, it means I do not know. For this reason if an item is listed as selling “as is”, there is no return of this item unless I have made a major error in its description. I have no desire to deceive my buyers and I also have no desire to be taken advantage of by a buyer. I DO NOT SHIP OUT OF THE UNITED STATES. ***SHIPPING TIME*** Barring unforeseen circumstances, purchases are normally shipped within one business day from when your payment is received. When this falls on a holiday, weekend or special occasion this would be the shippers next day of operation. If payment for your item is made after 8:00 AM EST on a Friday your item may be shipped on the following Monday. Please understand that I can only ship in a timely manner, I can not control the speed of the postal service or any other shipper. Shipping to the west coast, shipping during holiday periods and shipping via media mail are often slower. When your item is shipped I will provide you with a delivery confirmation or tracking number to show your item was shipped in a timely manner and so you can monitor its progress. When shipping speed is a factor you may upgrade to priority or a faster method of shipping, at your expense. I DO NOT SHIP OUT OF THE UNITED STATES. ***PAYMENT INFORMATION*** Ebay is now regulating the methods of payment I may list. I will take PayPal, I do not take credit cards. For items that are pick-up only, payment can be made via other means if agreed upon prior to the pick-up. All payments are in U.S. funds. Payment for your item is due within 7 days of auctions ending. If there is a legitimate reason for not making payment within this time please contact me in advance and I will try to work with you. If you plan to be away when auction ends and you fail to notify me, please remember I lost my psychic powers and will not be aware of this fact. I realize that problems do arise, but I also realize that there are a lot of non-paying bidders that play games on eBay. If you do not communicate I don’t know which category you fall under and I will consider you a non-paying bidder. I DO NOT SHIP OUT OF THE UNITED STATES. ***SHIPPING INFORMATION & COSTS*** It is not my intention to make a profit off of shipping/handling as some dealers do. I charge no handling fee and most packages (except for those requiring special packaging) have $1.00 or less added for packing and materials. The remaining costs of shipping goes to shipper. Ebay’s policy holds seller responsible for any lost or damaged items. I package my items well but once they have been shipped I can not control any abuse or loss of your item while under control of a carrier. For this reason all items include a USPS tracking number and certain items will automatically include insurance. Insured items will be noted in my listing. These costs have been figured into displayed shipping costs. I try to estimate total shipping costs as close as possible to my actual cost. On occasion an irregular or oversized package will cause differences in actual shipping costs which are unintentional. I ship only to confirmed U.S. addresses, no PO box numbers accepted for UPS shipping. With payment by PayPal the address supplied must comply with their record of confirmed address. NO SHIPPING OUT OF U.S.A. When possible I will offer USPS flat rate boxes or media mail as a means of shipping to save on cost to buyers. I will ship by means of U.S.P.S or by U.P.S., I do not ship via Fed Ex due to location. I DO NOT SHIP OUT OF THE UNITED STATES. ***“0” RATING BIDDERS ( bidders that have received no feedbacks yet) *** I have recently had a rash of non-paying “0” rated bidders interrupting my auctions and interfering with legitimate bidders. If you are a legitimate “0” rated bidder wishing to bid on my item, contact me first. Those not contacting me will normally have their bids canceled followed by a block being placed on them for any future bids. I DO NOT SHIP OUT OF THE UNITED STATES. ***NON – US BIDDERS*** Non US bidders have been blocked from bidding on my items as I do not ship outside of the US. This is nothing personal against non US bidders, but protection for sellers by PayPal outside of the US is poor and I will not take a loss. I also will not deal with the various import regulations of other countries. If you live outside the US and can provide a mailing address inside the US that I can ship an item to, you may contact me and have your block removed for purposes of bidding. Should you win the bid your item will be shipped to the US address you have provided. Any payment must be made in US funds. There are services available that will act as a shipping location inside the U.S. for foreign bidders that wish to buy on Ebay. These services will receive items from sellers then ship to your country. If you use these services your item can be shipped to their address. Out of country bidders using a false US address to permit them to bid on my items will have their transactions canceled and they will be reported to eBay.
