Other than my Myford metal lathe which I'll be leaving to a very good friend of over 50 years and has used it on many occasions, I'm in the same position.

My daddy always said, and I quote, When a baby is old enough to learn, that is when they should be taught". I was in the first grade and was driving our old pickup. Dad was throwing hay out the back of the truck. So it may have something to do with the task to be performed. My sisters were all started at the Piano at four and five. I believe it also depends on the individual child. Some learn at different rates than others. Some listen better than others. Probably not the answer you were looking for, but it piqued my interest by your question.

I bought 3 x small Ryobi screwdrivers years ago when they were on special, less than us$4 each. cheaper than cheap plastic "make believe" power tools, and lasted a heck of a lot longer.

My daughter is willing to do small photoshop edits in exchange for LinkedIn likes. (bigger commissions to be discussed)
She just completed her concept art diploma through VANAS - Vancouver Animation School.
Watch her portfolio at https://www.nicorene.art
Please feel free to spread the word - it might just get her permanent employment.

I have 3 sons and 3 daughters. None of them are a bit interested in my work shop or my tools. I get oohs and aaahs when I build some thing , but no one wants to know how that was done.
Now my lovely wife on the other hand, takes as I build pictures, makes video's of my work and brags about everything that comes out of the shop.
Maybe one of my 11 grands and 2 great grands will grow to be interested.
Meanwhile, we will keep on making big pieces of wood smaller, and making saw dust, even if it is just for our own pleasurer.

My daughter in law has just started a divorce from the guy who was in line to inherit my tools. He was only somewhat interested. I have a grandson on my wife's side I think might become interested if he lived anywhere close by (150 miles away now). Maybe I'll get in touch with him, He might be interested in the occasional 2 day visit where we can do projects and maybe get him hooked. Need to clear out my inside office so he'd have a place to sleep, if he's interested.

I kind of like that tool kit, but I always hated the hand drill they show. Horrible, hard to handle tool if you're a kid. The woodworking book probably has some projects in it, that would be good.

I had something like that back when I was 3 or 4 years old. My dad bought me a set like this and now we spend the weekends using the real thing. LOL!
