Welcome to the forum.

I do not have either of these sets, but my experience with sets of plans is that generally you get a lot of chaff with the grain. If you have an idea of what you want to build you can go on the internet and search for plans to build it. Another good way is to give us an idea of what you want to build and ask for ideas, plans, and help. Personally, I almost never use plans, because it is often so hard to find a set of plans that reflect what my ideas and wishes are. I usually start with an idea of what I want to build, and then do up some sketches and figure out dimensions.

I have not heard that in a long time, well used in this case. And I will second your advice to the OP.
