Everyone has to start somewhere, and having your own set of these three basic hand tools that you have to keep clean, well sharpened and in good working order can inspire an enthusiastic young woodworker.

The tools chosen and packed in a fitted wood case are a #4 Smooth Plane, a Standard Block Plane with an adjustable mouth and a fully Adjustable Spokeshave (as basic a personal kit as one can imagine).

We have tried to pull together such a set for a reasonable cost for years - always stymied by a cost we felt was too high. A well respected Indian engineering firm finally accepted the challenge and we are delighted to have, for the very first time, a Kit that we can believe in.

Beginners Only
Reviewed By:   (Lewisburg, PA) 
If you are planning on remaining a beginner then these are fine but..... The soles of the planes are not flat. Planes will only flatten a surface as flat as their soles and the ones I received are not flat and the work I would need to do in order to flatten the is excessive. The sides of both planes I received are not square. I sharpened the blades after cleaning the shipping oil from them. (they did arrive clean). I did get them adjusted to shave a nice thin strip off the piece I was working on but it was not flat due to the sole issues stated above. Had I performed these tests promptly upon receipt of the planes, I would have returned them. They will serve a purpose but they are not what I expected.

Great Addition To My Workshop

I lost most of my tools in the divorce. I have gotten a tool here and there over the past few years. I needed a plane and went to Google to see what was available. I found this starter set and placed my order. The planes exceeded my expectation and I have used them successfully on several projects. I recommend this starter set to all without reservation!

Didn't know I had a chisel until I used your honing tool, before I sharpened it I had to use a hammer, afterword I just tapped it with the palm of my hand, why didn't I find this a few years ago.

I love the products I ordered from your company. I like having all three tools in one box.
