i would go with the drillpress but do your homework look at a lot of differnt ones, a good bench top model would be fine unless u want to cut 5” holes in hard wood every day. as for the other stuff keep an i out on craigslist but do your home work and know what u want. also look at pawn shops iv got a lot of used good tools from these places lot of nailers for cheap, if u know whitch model to get, oOo and your table saw ? u said it was a bench top table saw? in my opion u will use a table saw more than any tool in the shop so put a good blade on it (i like frued 24t Diablo) and u can do almost any thing this was my first have to have. get some bar clamps from hf and pipe from lowes cost 20.00 per clamp o and welcome to Lj have fun be safe
