My band saw, a Powermatic with mobile base, riser block and tension release, was one of the greatest additions to my shop. It gets used about as much as my miter and even more than my table saw.

My lathe is just damn fun and my get away, when I need to think by not thinking about a subject.

My drum sander gets used even more than my spindle sander, but ooooh that spindle sander. Those curves are so much more tolerable to sand now,

What is it about my Unisaw? I think the smooth whirrr of the blade is satisfying, if a bit scary. Until this, I’d come to take it for granted. However, what makes that saw kick butt is what would make any saw great – a REALLY good fence.

In the end, all the above leave me in love with my dust collector(s), but that would be a quandary, since without the others, there is no reason for them.
