4.0 out of 5 stars Decent tools for the price, 26 Aug. 2013

This review is from: Faithfull CARPBAG Carpenters Tool Set (7 Pieces) (DIY & Tools)
At this price it is obvious you aren't going to be buying the very best quality tools, however they are definitely very reasonable quality and with just a little bit of setting up excellent value.

The sole of the Number 4 plane (the main tool I was interested in) was very far from flat but half an hour spent with some fine grade wet and dry paper and a steel straightedge resolved that problem. The blade was quite usably sharp, though the handle was a little bit loose and the screw was already as tight as it would go, so will need packing. With that 30 minutes of work though, the plane is quite pleasant to use and I'm quite satisfied with it.

The block plane (the second reason for buying this set) looked very nicely made, but there was a fairly substantial nick out of the blade which will need ground out and sharpened. Once this is done I can't see any problems with this tool.

The try square and marking knife are excellent; as with all the tools in this set they look lovely.

The Marking / Mortice gauge works well enough, though the wooden handle is a little bit soft (meaning the setting screw leaves deeper indentations in it than I would like)

The carry case seems pretty well made and is a nice way of keeping all the tools neatly together.

In all, this is a very usable and very attractive looking set of tools for the price which, with a little bit of setting up, should see the hobbyist / DIY woodworker through quite a bit of use.
