My shop is small and still in the process of growing. I’ve started out with cheap tools that are few and far between and have picked up some nicer things over the course of time. I was recently lucky enough to pick up a very lightly used BT3000 with loads of accesories. A divorced friend of my wife’ just wanted all of this “junk” out of her garage. I picked it up for $75. That was all that she would let me pay her for it. I offered her $300 and she turned that offer down. It has an outfeed table, stand, dust collection, 2 accessory tables, 3 new blades and a nice dado set.

Outside of that, I’ve got mainly basic tools like a miter saw, cheap 9” band saw, etc…

Still learning so what I’ve got is good enough for now but I have a long wish list…

Ben, you have put together a pretty nice looking shop. Your shop looks to be spacious, well organized and has some nice ceiling height in it. Thanks for the tour. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Nice looking shop ! I had a BT 3000 saw. I got it when they first came out years ago. Great saw. Gave it to my step son and still in use today ! Are you going to use the router table feature? Do you ever make over to Milan to the woodworking store there?
