No matter what, there is always a tool that we want next, even if it’s an upgrade of a tool we already have. What is next on your radar?

For me, I need a dust collector. I’ve had enough of the allergy attacks from the dust in my shop. (in the mean time I need to be a good boy and wear my mask)

Wow, good question. I have been eyeballing a stanley #45. I too could use a dust collector redo.

Band saw (planning to sell the table saw and replace with a good band saw)

I dream of Festool… been thinking of getting a bench top mortiser, but the more I see the Domino used I think it might be more versatile

Just bought a Narex 8pc chisel set, which was on the wish list for along time.

Thinking about downsizing/upgrading my table saw! Maybe just some better blades and a decent Fence?

Yeah that domino is super cool. Very expensive though.

Me, I’m close to pulling the trigger on a CNC router. I can’t decide if I want a commerical one, ore build one myself. Tried a few times to get in tough with laguna, but that must be selling so many no one wants to talk to me. :)

The answer is yes. Every tool.

But realistically, the next standalone tool is probably a Shoulder Plane, powered jointer, or building a Chevalet. I will be buying another track for my Grizzly tracksaw soon though.

Domino, but I’m waiting for HF’s clone. Should sell for about 79,99. Minus 20% coupon, of course.

CNC Router would be my next major purchase.

Well, if they sold skill…. I’d buy that next!!!

I’m liking the look of the delta 50-767 dust collectors. $350 though. Hope I can find one a tad cheaper or get a coupon

Would love a drum sander, but next on the list is a dust collector I’d say.

Right now I’m looking at the Ashley Iles dovetail chisel to compliment my LN dovetail saw.

A drum sander would be nice. Real nice.

A laser would be fun, but the sander is a couple thousand cheaper, so more do-able.

A CNC, would open a whole lot of doors. One worth having would mean selling my wife’s car are having her scate board to work. She’s over sixty and that might leave me in deep _t. Back to the sander.
