What would it be and why?

For me it would be an open end belt sander. I have been working alot with veneer and small part that just dont work on the planer. It would be a welcome addition

Just a 3 phase left tilt Unisaw. Power and it talks so sweet when you turn it on, barooom!

It eats anything you feed it and never complains… if you respect it.

First, I need a place in my shop to put it. Then I need an open end belt sander.

For me it would have to be a category I could chose from. Something I have been giving serious thought to these days. After achieving a knowledge of tool use I’m ready for a new arsenal of good quality hand tools to work with. For years I have used cheap chisels and hand planes as well as other hand tools, and have gotten by quite well. I now have about the majority of machines and power tools I want minus the air tools I want. But my hand tools are a sorry looking lot, some of which don’t work well due to the quality of the materials.

A bigger shop would be nice, but the tool I’m most lacking is just the time to spend in the shop.
