I agree. I am not speaking os a single tool purchase. I was just curious about the motivation behind purchasing an extra large bandaw, for example, when the other tools in your shop might limit the need or use. If one was planning to upgrade or knew they would in a while, then it makes sense to me. Don has his own technique and use for wider boards, and that makes sense to me. If someone told me “I bought it because I wanted it…” that would make sense to me. I was curious if anyone bought another tool and thought about the specs based on other tools in their shop or whether it was not a consideration at all. When i bought my BS, I took in account my other tool items, knew I wasn’t upgrading any time soon, and sized the specs in relation.

Just something on the table to think about is all.
