I expect you are all wishing me to give an evaluation on a star rating basis. Impossible. I will say this much, if I was stuck on a desert island with a lathe and a video recorder and asked the question, "which of all these [reviewed] would I choose if the choice was limited to one?" I would prefer to keep the Mike Darlow set. If I had seen it twenty-five years ago I would be a better wood turner.
Zachary Taylor, Woodworker, March 1994.

Any woodturner, from novice to expert, should consider adding these tapes to his or her reference sources. The amount of information they contain is immense and valuable, and requires repeated viewing to adequately absorb and understand. Teachers and educational institutions will especially appreciate Darlow's latest contribution to woodturning instruction.
Rodger Jacobs, American Woodturner, March 1994.
