I’ve been using used and low end machines in my workshop since last year when I begin woodworking.
Recently spent more time on machine maintenance than wood working. Decided to update the table saw and band saw to new machines.
Updated the table saw to a Ridgid 4512. Some minor setup issues, but should be finished by the weekend with setup, squaring, etc. Did a test power on and it runs really smooth. Not even comparable to the older used table saws.
Ordered Grizzly 14” Anniversary Bandsaw. Hope to save some money and have a wider choice of wood.
Currently, only red oak and poplar from BORG is what I use. Now I’ll be able to resaw. Looking forward to using cherry, maple and whatever else I can get. Need to find a decent lumber yard on Space Coast or Orlando.
Next new machine on the list is a planer.
With two new machines I hope to spend more time woodworking and less time fidgeting with machines.
