My advice would be stick with used tools like you are saying.

Plane – Stanley No.4. Buy one in decent shape and consider an aftermarket blade, as it does improve the cut quality and user-friendliness

Chisels – I bought a cheap set of chisels and I regret it. You could buy used chisels one by one over time and accrue a set. This will sound weird too, but Buck Bros chisels at home depot are actually pretty decent. The steel is good, but they don’t balance too well. But, if you need a chisel to start with, a $15 buck bros is easy to get a hold of.

The double-sided japanese style pull saws a re great saws to start off with. Those can be had at home depot or lowes as well. Even Harbor Freight… if you dare
