@Don – Yeah, it’s probably semantics there.

@Russell – I paid $500 for my Unisaw and $600 for the fence system that goes on it. BOTH are the best money I’ve ever spent on woodworking. Give me a list of TS cuts and I will cut them 10 times faster and more accurately than you would on a Bies. That’s worth the money for me. And because it works so well, it makes such things even more fun.

Beautiful, well designed tools are a pleasure to use. This is true in any thing. My telescopes cost 10 times more than what people probably think…but I bet I get 100 times the pleasure in using them.

I said this in another thread the other day, but i believe people don’t really know what they need until they actually have it. Similarly, I think people don’t know the value of something until they’ve spent time using it. If this were not the case, then there’d be no market for the things people think and extravagant or excessive.
