At Vatt we are given a complete set as part of the program. However those don't come in until the third week. Been doing allot of cutting so I jumped the gun and got me a good cutter. You don't need to do that if you just want to use the shop tools until yours come in.
Yeah that is nice but you do pay for them! From what I can see with the other students they are good quality too. But on the other hand it is nice too when you get a list and can choose the brand/style that feels best to you.
