My 2 Cents,
Buy what you can afford AND NEED
What you cannot afford MAKE even if you don’t need it
What you cannot make Use what they used a hundred years ago, Sharp planes and chisels, sweat and sore arms
I challange anyone to say they can do better woodworking than a hundred years ago with Festool or Makita or DeWalt ect.
You just can do it faster, BUT not better . And less rewarding.
ME I’m alergect to sweat and sore arms, but still cannot afford $700.00 for mortises!
I did spend $400.00 on Icra LS, it does alot though.
I did spend $18.00 on a brad nailer at Harbor Freight, (it would shoot at will) the third one I got was safe.
Everthing I do not use constantly and does not have to be very accurate I buy at Harbor Freight or Grizz ect. BUT I do make sure it is working properly before I give it my relax blessing.
By Now
