I have been meaning to pick up a new set of chisels for a while now but I keep accidentally spending my tool money on old planes. I just received a Home Depot gift card and since they don’t have any 100 year old planes I’m thinking about getting a set from them. I know that buck brothers and everything else you find on the shelf isn’t going to be worth my time but they do have a little bit of a selection online. I’m looking at two different sets:
Stanley Bailey Chisel Set 5 piece set, $70
Stanley Sweetheart 750 4 piece set, $98
I’ve seen a few mentions here on the 750’s but I don’t think I’ve seen any mention of the Stanley Bailey set. Does anyone out there have either of these sets? If so how do you like them and how do they compare to chisels available outside of the BORG’s? I’m assuming they aren’t all that comparable to brands like Sorby or Pfeil but I’m hoping they are closer to those than my current Harbor Freight beaters. Are they worth the money or am I better off saving this gift card for screws and sandpaper and finding a set of chisels somewhere else?
