Welcome Chris.

Don’t worry about being a noob – The LJ community is great, and even the professionals are willing to help without putting you down.

My broad advice is “don’t buy cheap” – it’s seldom worth it. Rather go mid range if you can’t afford the top line stuff. For example, I got an awesome set of Marples chisels from Rockler – mid price but good tools.

Read through the reviews section of this site and you’ll get a ton of good product evaluations (from the users not the sellers) – both the thumbs-up and the thumbs-down types.

Good sawing and have fun while being safe.

-- I may be schizophrenic, but at least I have each other.
