Hi David,

You have a decent workshop to play in and you have a good start on your tool collection with the bench and table saw.

Keep us posted on your progress.

Great start David, I like the Delta saw ! I was at the Houston WW show as well, picked up a rigid jointer and planer on the cheap! I am a “newbe” as well across the “big city” from you in Humble. This site has been a great place to learn and get a good laugh from everytime I visit. Keep the shop updates coming!

I love your tablesaw! I really like mine, but yours is new!!! I see some space on the end for a router table extension!! Ahh, the memories!! Regarding your decision about a drum sander, or a planer. Since the drum sander is approximately 3 times more expensive, I would get a good planer. My 13” Delta is a workhorse, and I’ve ran so much lumber through it. Only now that I’m working with wider glue ups is the reason I bought the drum sander. I want to be able to plane to a oversized thickness in order to do a glue up (like a bookmatched panel for a highboy) and then when it’s dried, drum sand it to final thickness, so that it is absolutely flat. The drum sander doesn’t compress the board through, it is fed under the drum, and any high spot is sanded first, and so forth until the panel is flat. It is also 3” wider than my planer, and you can run a wider than 16” piece through on one edge, then turn it around, and run it through the other side to do wider panel. I can’t wait to use it on a project this Fall!! Regarding the jointer, get the biggest, widest, and most maintenance free one you can afford. I originally bought a Grizzly 6”, then a month later, they put the 8” on sale, so I sold it, and got the 8”. Then I splurged on the carbide inserted cutterhead. Nothing easier than rotating the inserts when they chip, or get dull. Also, the carbide inserts are easier on figured wood than knives! Good luck!!
