This question is probably as old as me, but here I go!
I am outfitting my garage, which is 12’x17’, with the following:
1.) New cabinet saw, something around $1k-$1,500, 3hp, 220v 10” w/ a riving knife. Looking at either Grizzly, Steel City, Laguna or Jet (I know the last two are a little more).
2.) Dust Collection, something around $400-$500.
I already own Jet 6” jointer and a Delta 13” planer. The cabinet saw and dust collection are two items I would like to purchase at the same time, making my total budget for both between $2,000-$2,500.
My garage is now gutted and having a new concrete floor poured next week so I am starting this from scratch. I am also having a 100amp sub-panel put in with the appropriate outlets.
So now the age old question, WHAT WOULD YOU SUGGEST I put in my woodshop? This question is harder than buying a new car!!!
Thanks all – Mike
Edit: In addition, I will be adding the following sometime next year: a 14” bandsaw and a 15” stationary drill press. Thinking Rikon for BS and not sure about the DP. Any suggestions?
