    Re: Next Tool Purchase

    iím In a different camp. I use a jointer and planer much more than my bandsaw (except for my band sawmill). I would advise you to buy as wide of one as you can.

    Bandsaw, for the reasons noted above.
    The thing that holds up all my woodworking is simply getting started.

    Re: Next Tool Purchase

    Every piece of wood goes through my jointer before the table saw. I want that 1st cut to be straight against the saw fence. I have 2 bandsaws. A Shopsmith 11 inch that i'm fitting out with a Carter stabilizer & 1/8 in. blade. It'll be the worlds fastest scroll saw. I use my old Delta 14 inch all the time. For everything. Stock 3 blades: 1/8, 1/4 & 1/2. The 1/4 is my go-to blade. The 1/8 for intricate work & the 1/2 for resaw. All that being said. There is only one power tool that I know of that does what no hand tool can do. That's a lathe. I have 2, a Delta mini & a large Delta that I'm replacing with a Nova Saturn DVR. As for a bandsaw, I like the Rikon 14 inch Deluxe. I've sold it and it's a very good saw.
