This is my first post here, and I hope to get some good help/input from you more experienced guys.
There are seven youtubelinks in this post, but that’s just for clarification, and is not a must see ;-)
After a “pause” of 20 years, I’m getting back into doing some smaller carpeting/woodworking.
Someone said “spend more than you plan on your tools – then you only get disappointed once”
So the plan is to buy quality gear that will last for a long time, and that will not disappoint in their performance.
Like everybody else, I want the most quality out of my bucks, so thats why this thread came up.
Present, I don’t have my own woodshop, but do have access to a empty “woodshop room”, where I can bring my portable gears and do some woodworking. I also plan on doing onsite projects like:
- and all the small woodwork projects like the (in)famous woodwhisperer cuttingboard.
As most woodwork at least initially will be made in this temporary woodwork room, and fences and decks will be constructed on site, the tools must be highly portable, durable and with a good dust reduction system.
First batch of tools would be a good mobile dust extractor, a good drill, and a good jigsaw.
I’m thinking about the cleantex CTM36:
The Carvex PSB 400:
and the cordless T-18:
Second batch would be a router and a sander:
And the Rotex Ro150:
The Kapex Mitersaw would be nice also, but is not as versitile as the Carvex jigsaw, initially.
These two sets would get me started ( tablesaw, bandsaw, drill on stand and the planer/thicknesser is also on the wish list – just thinking about buying some more “heavy” models rather than portable ones – and for that I need a permant shop first.)
So what’s your say? – Any other ideas/options?
Thanks in advance, Patrik
ps: I’m not a pro-festool guy (I am a pro guy for any equiipment that helps giving the best result in fastest time ;-) Just seemed to be the best option given these user videos:
(50 seconds into the movie about the dust reduction issue)
