Makes me look like a “Piker”: Tablesaw…$400 when it was new, Drill press…$70 (new) Router…$170 (new), Planer….$125 (it was on sale, but new) My “Jointer’ is a Bailey #8c ( $25) or a KK7 ($55).

Tablesaw just hit it’s 30th Birthday. Drill press is about 2yrs old. Router is a “kit” with both fixed and plunge bases. Bailey is going on 100 years old, the KK7…? Planer is a small “Lunchbox type” for when i don’t feel like using these…

They are sitting on my homemade router table. let’s see, oh yeah, also have a 12×37” Lathe ($90 new) and a small bandsaw ( @$90, used) There is a Electric Jointer sitting in the shop, a 6-1/8” Craftsman from back in the 80s, not running right now, need to be refurbished, and new knives. Still FAR below that $$$$$ amount, though….;-)

-- A Planer? I'M the planer, this is what I use
