I am pretty happy with this set. I will be comparing this set to a 5 chisel set I previously purchased from Woodcraft at a sale price of $86 after tax, original price was $130 + tax. The PSI set cost me under $50 with free shipping and no tax. The blades on the PSI chisels measure between 6.25 to 6.5 inches from ferrule to tip, which is the same as the more expensive Woodcraft set. The Woodcraft set came with what I felt were clumsy, overly large, overly long, and slippery handles that felt too light, while the PSI handles are made with denser/harder/heavier wood that IMO handle better for more detailed work. The overall fit and finish of the PSI set is better, except that the Woodcraft set is sharpened better. For some reason, the edges of the PSI chisels that are supposed to be flat (not the ground cutting edges) round over near the tips of the new tools. Grinding/sharpening gets rid of the problem for good but that means you'll have to spend more time preparing the tools for use. This is the reason I gave it 4 stars out of 5. The PSI set also comes in an softwood/plywood case while the Woodcraft set came in a sad cardboard box. Funny enough, the PSI case needed some fixing just as I had read from the other reviews here. It wasn't broken though, there just wasn't enough glue applied to the lid and bottom of the case. A tiny bit of glue and some light clamping pressure fixed it up like new - a job that really should be a piece of cake for anyone. Amazon did a good job of packing it. The case is actually a nice touch. It's good enough to use on it's own, but I keep all my tools in a large rolling chest with drawers.Read more ›

I occasionally mentor novice turners and so bought all sets of the Benjamin's Best tools--four of the penturner's set. As I sharpen and test these tools to get them ready for use, I find that, in many cases, the quality of the steel compares favorably with steel costing up to four times as much, and it's the steel you're after, not the handle or the case! (The most expensive tools come indiviually packaged in a plastic sheath and many of them are unhandled.) If the B. B. handles come loose bang the end opposite the ferule down on a hard surface. If the handle cracks make a new one out of a $2.00 piece of ash (or a hardwood stick out of your woodpile). You can shine the metal with 0000 steel wool or crocus cloth if you are worried about appearances. Some have said they have to sharpen the B. B. tools often. So do we all! Experienced turners working on hard wood sharpen their tools (even the expensive ones) several times an hour (I said sharpen, not grind) because dull tools don't perform. Keep these babies sharp and clean and they will serve as well as Sheffield steel for almost as long. Happy turning!

I'm new to wood turning. Having just purchased my first lathe I was looking for a good starter set. After some research, I "settled" on these as offering a good balance of quality (HSS & nice handles), selection and number of tools, and price. Ordering through Amazon was easy, and even with free shipping, they were delivered within a few days.

Based on other reviews here, I was expecting the tools to need immediate sharpening and the box to be falling apart. I was pleasantly surprised on both counts. The tools were reasonably sharp and the box was sound. Initially they didn't cut as well as I though they should and I wondered if they needed sharpening, but, then I noticed there was a filmy coating on the tools (probably some kind of protectant) which I removed using "Goo Gone". After which they cut much better. Any new sharp tool can use some sharpening, so I dressed them slightly with a diamond "stone" and they cut great.

I do wish the parting tool was an 1/8" diamond profile rather than the straight 3/16", and, I can see where bigger, heavier tools will be nice in the future, but, I've already done several small spindle projects (and a fair number of practice spindle trials of beads and coves) which I'm happy with (I really love how you can shave the wood with the skews and get such a smooth finish).

I'm very happy with this set and would highly recommend it as a starter set for any new wood turner.

I'm new to turning and needed a wide variety of tools to get started. I bought this set and a quality bowl gauge, guessing that the tool I use most would need to be higher quality. I was right. I have not yet used the spindle tools in this set so my review is for the roughing gouge, bowl gouge, skew chisels and scraper. These tools sharpen OK but don't hold that edge long. They are also relatively short and light compared to the higher quality tools I looked at. I find I'd like more heft and control. That said, they're great to experiment with and the skew and scraper are just fine for the 5 to 8 inch bowls I'm working on. I think for larger projects or for difficult wood grain I'd find these lacking. I expect I'll slowly accumulate better replacements for those I really use and keep these in the rack for back-up, especially those I rarely use. The quality of the handles and ferules is great, the box is nice and while you get what you pay for, in this case you also get your money's worth and more. I'm very pleased with my purchase, but had realistic expectations.
