hey monkeyman

Im still a newbie but for what its worth i bought some crappy ass tools in the beginning and waisted my money......Im with PDrake, I like old, antique tools and i ended up buying vintage chisels and gouges on ebay one at a time.....might have paid more for some and got good deals on others. in the end i got an awsome collection of some of the best made tools from over 80 years ago or even older. I might have spent the same on a new, more expensive set but its also nice having some history attached to your tools too.......the metal was better and thicker and will outlast my grand kids. i sold my new junk at ebay to someone else.......

by the way. watch for antique chisels coming out of England. the best stuff i got i bought from there.

well thats my two scents for what its worth (if any)..........good luck

Ps. I just listen to whatever Benzart says......he is the man!!!!!!
