Excellent learning. It would be great to have a larger version for cutting wood larger than balsa wood.
I thought at first that it wasn't any good- but then I perservered,found a decent power source - either high powered batteries, or multi-adapter power socket, or what i use, the power gorilla (that charges up either from the plug, or for freer electricity via the solar gorilla)
With the correct power source, it cuts well, drills well, all rounder.
There are projects to build a fish wood cut out ornament (very easy), a plane (fairly easy), a garage (a bit more challenging but exciting).
It has a small jigsaw (the least safe of the items as least protected when cutting, but done with supervision especially, it's fine. (plus from age 11 they use bigger ones in school anyway- well i did anyway). I have to say, having the protector shield on a string so it stays with the machine, and doesn't get lost is a bonus, so it's always there to shield it when not in use.
It has a circular saw, which is extremely safe, as it's well protected even when cutting.
It's only suitable for balsa wood, which is thin, and not so strong, but it's a good beginners kit.
It has a drill. And a lathe, an electric sander, and a vice to put wood in when using sandpaper.
It has cardboard templates that hook over the cardboard - to draw the design on the wood, it has dowels, a spare jigsaw blade, and
more blades can be ordered.
It would be useful, if, like i said, it cut thicker wood, so it
could be used in other woodwork projects. And if it had some extra spare wood and dowels in practice on, but extra wood, and extra projects are also available from power workshop that look interesting too.
