I’m still just starting out but I’ll chime in with Tedstor here. If it weren’t for my table saw I wouldn’t get anything done.

The Random Orbital sander is in my hand more than I expected. I’m also surprised how often I use my belt sander. It’s a handheld model, but sometimes I turn it upside down and clamp it to the workbench.

You won’t believe how many clamps you use. It really defies all logic.

But aside from those couple/few things I’d say stop, work with them on a few projects and see what you need.

I made the mistake of buying LOTS of small power tools that just serve as sawdust accumulation systems (my router and hand planer most notably.)
