1.
Historically linked to thieves, but more recently associated with just about anything. Someone who picks something apart a tiny bit at a time. One can chisel on another's stash, their money, their air, their space, their game, their well-being...whatever.
You drank my last beer Neil, you worthless chiseler.

A person who wins by deception, by sharp practice, is a cheat and generally a low-life swindler. Someone who cannot be trusted, particularly at business.
That mate of mine is a complete chiseler. As a friend I invested £10k in his insurance business only to discover it is an illegal pyramid scheme and I've lost the lot.

3.
A person who tries to get the lowest price possible on everything and will go to extremes to save a few dollars or pennies. In other words, a cheap ass looser, a coupon-clipper, someone that would bend over in the street to pick up a penny.

4.
A retired government employee who lives on a government pension, but despises the federal government. These individuals are proud fiscal conservatives. They live in suburbs and love yard work because it makes them feel like a man. They are critical about everything. They attend local government meetings to bitch. They believe they are active in the political arena with their letters to the editor complaining about government. They are often children of vets, but didn't serve themselves. They have mustaches. They couldn't accomplish shit with their life, so they got a government gig and maybe worked their way to middle management. They chisel away at their own and everyone else's life. Above all else, they teabag.
I saw an interview with this dude on the news about the latino labor strike. He went to Mexican restaurant, realized it was closed for the strike, then bitched about the Mexicans not serving him food and about them being in the country illegally. What a fucking Chiseler.

A derogatory name for the irish. A higher form of paddy and mick. MUCH more offensive.
It originated, some say, in Boston and other 19th century New England areas. The Irish were said to have come to America for an easy free ride(which they did not have) and that they CHISELED the Americans out of money.
Bigot:Did you see that damn Mick?
Bigot 2: Yeah, that f***ing chiseler had no right to apply for a job here!
