My tool purchases are a mix of want and need. I bought a 5hp unisaw did I need it no, a 3hp would have been ok. I am getting ready to buy a jointer a 6” will get me by but an 8” is what I am going to buy. I spent a lot of time using lesser quality tools but now that I am getting ready to retire and use the shop more the quality of machine is important. When I buy a new machine I tell my son, just got a new tool for you. He will eventually get them when I can no longer use them. So I justify some of purchases based on that fact.
