Instruction example 10.1. Training workpieces for cutting-off chiselling

To practise cutting-off chiselling on different cross-sections without measures given.


- Round steel (380 MPa)


6 to 10 mm

- Square steel (380 MPa)


6 to 10 mm

- Flat steel (380 MPa)


4 mm


20 to 35 mm


Hand tools

Flat chisel, engineers' hammer

Measuring and testing tools



Steel plate or anvil with spacers (sheet plates), protective wall or protective grating

Required previous knowledge


Sequence of operations


1. Arrange workplace, prepare working material

- Check for completeness

2. Cutting-off the round steel - chiselling in a single pass

- Part (1)
Protect the workpiece against rolling away!

3. Cutting-off the square steel - notching at all sides with the flat chisel, then beating through or breaking

- Part (2)

4. Cutting-off the flat steel - beating through from one side with overlapping chisel neck

- Part (3)
- on a support not hardened (spacer)

5. Final check

- Visual check of the cut face
