Warning Wil Robins Warning

I started right where you are at 2 years ago. Set a budget and wanted to build a resemblance of a shop. Well lets see I know have a cabinet sawstop , 14’ Rikon bandsaw. jointer, router table, and dust collection. Also blades and dado set, router bits Kreg jig and chisels.

Now the bad part a list of dewalt tools I started to buy some we need some not. Rookie mistake. take the time to decide what you really want to do and go from there . Spent $7500 and still need drill press planer belt sander lol im in deep dodo. Haven’t even bought a clamp yet.

If you really want a laugh i set it all up and have not made a bit of saw dust. My leg collapsed from the steroids i am on for Kidney transplant and haven’t walked since March. We finally got go ahead to walk so a lot of dust to come. Of course dust might be the end product until i learn. spent the last 10 months reading here I should be a pro by now.

Just enjoy what ever you can afford to do that is what its about. .
