As a counter point to the assertion of spending more than you plan on tools is the quote..

“A fool and his money are soon parted.”

Don’t buy on brand name alone or you will end up with a garage full of overpriced tools that may not work the way you had expected.

Dive into the forums, learn to use the search features of the various ones, and seek out the various reviews and what the chatter about specific tools is… Of course you can fill your space with Festool, and that’s great, but horridly expensive for most of us. Shop wisely and you will not only be happy with your tools, but you will have money left over for more wood!
