I’ve seen these threads come up all the time. Like Is Festool worth it? Lie Neilson chisel vs Stanley chisels? Which one is the best? So on..
But There is one thing I want to say that is no matter how much you spend on a tool. In the end, it is the person using it. You can spend $60 on a chisel and not know how to use it properly. You can spend $400 sander that have these great features and still get swirl marks. In the end, it is understanding and knowing the basics. If you cant sharpen a $20 chisel, you can’t sharpen a $60. I’m not saying don’t buy these tools. What I’m saying get the basic right.
Like What Randy Pausch coach said,
“Fundamentals, Fundamentals, Fundamentals, you got get the fundamentals down or the fancy stuff wont work”
