I just got and e mail about a new sander from Festool and it had photos of all of their other tools they make in the same e-mail. right away I thought I’ll get em all after I win the lottery LOL So I thought I’d offer a post for others to day dream and say what woodworking tools, supplies or ??? they would get if they won the $ 305 million power ball lottery. No cheating with answers like “everything” :)

After I paid the important stuff off, there should be enough money left over, to set up a very nice shop that had several power outlets and air fittings that would eliminate all those dreaded extension cords I have!!!! I would definitely refit a few tools like a bigger bandsaw, as well as a horizontal bandsaw. The biggest thing that the money would provide would be building a workspace that allowed me to work in unconfined space. As well as the financial opportunity to screw more projects up learng!!!!!!!
Matter of fact I better go buy a ticket. You can’t win without a ticket!

I would get whatever I wanted !! Like a friend said to me a long time ago….. ”the lottery is a fool’s tax. I know where my dollar is.” <——as he patted his pants pocket. LOL

Seriously….I would get a better, bigger bandsaw very first thing.

If I won the lottery …. I’d hire an assistant to keep my shop clean. The rest would be all imagination.

My first actual purchase would be a ferrari which would share its garage space with the DD which would be a s60 that was completely rebuilt to the current race car spec for about 200k.
Not much else I’d actually be interested in buying from there. Just get a decent house in a nice neighborhood and a dedicated woodshop. Wouldn’t go nuts outfitting it though.

I’d build a real work shop.. getting tired of rolling tools out into the driveway to use them :)

Cheers,

I would build a special shop with elevated flooring, not just for dust collection but so I can inset tools in them instead of always having to deal with getting certain tools for my height etc, I’d be able to inset them into the flooring so they’re height would be more comfortable for me.

A separate workshop, heated and cooled with a separate room for DC and another for lumber storage. After that, whichever tools I could best work into my learnings.

The first thing I would do is have a live TV broadcast because I have a whole list of people I wish to tell to kiss my rich…...
Then I would help homeless vets.
