I don't know what I'm doing wrong but the punch works just fine but when I get to the Chisel it doesn't do hardly damn thing. Hammering it out seems to be going quicker right now. Any thoughts on why the air chisel might not be doing much work? The punch was just fine

They are just taking out the side panels so easy but for some reason the roof with it don't seem to be moving much

Re-grinding the chisel makes all the difference. I used virtually the same technique as shown in this video, the only exception being the profile of my chisel. Where he made a rounded face, I made mine with a flat face. In any case, the key was to have the point of the chisel at one edge rather than centered the way Harbor Freight sells them. It's surprising how much difference that change in shape makes.

By the way, I'm envious of that beautifully clean steel roof. No asphalteum anywhere!

I got a fancy set of chisels for free when I pulled a lady's ceiling panels down. They're craftsman, and really nice.

Thanks a lot for the tips guys, sharpening that chisel definitely improve the situation quite a bit. I only have a sharpening stone, I think I ended up messing it up more than I helped it ended up fixing it and it's going a lot better than previously

I just sharpen them with an angle grinder.

Thanks again man.... sad that I didn't consider it myself. I think I'd be completely lost without this site

Just wondering if any one has used the air compressor on board the bus to fuel their pneumatic tools??

It is amazing, easy and definitely saves you hundreds on an air compressor.
It's a must-know for any bus owner!!
