I am VERY new to woodworking (about 6 months into it) and I have made decent progress I think. I have a question about tool priority I would to pose here.
So, I have around $700 I can use to buy my next tool. I am thinking about getting the best table saw I can within my price range because the one I have now is horrible (the ~$100 skil 10” saw from lowes). However, I recently purchased a festool TS55 track saw, which so far has made up for that. The only problem I have with the track saw is repeating cuts of the same size accurately. I do not have a Planer, but I do have a joiner (although it desperatly needs new blades) I have a miter saw (I built a fancy stand for that, my crown jewel of woodworking so far). I have a dust collector, a shop vac, orbital sander, paint/stain sprayer, router and some other things.
So I guess my question is, Should I get a better table saw? a router table? should I just get the accessories for my TS55 that would make repeating cuts easy? I am stumped and want to make the best decision.
