Catalog has been requested. Thank you very much. I'm excited about expanding my tool collection in general, but very much so in the wood working field. I'm not big on experience, but that's where everyone starts.

The table saw is the heart of any wood shop----Buy the biggest you can afford--

The bigger --the safer--much easier to control the wood on a larger surface.

So much depends on budget and the kinds of projects you plan. If you are trying to save some money, I would eliminate the air compressor and nailer (more nice than necessary). I would, like the others, prefer a jointer over a lathe.

Depending on how you value your health, I add my voice to those who suggested a dust collection system. A portable device works pretty well if you are willing to spend the time setting up on each tool and don't want to spend the money on a built-in system.

Craig's List if you really think you need it. Price points run from $75-$200. Anything more then $125.00, you paid too much.

My shop is not heated, but I'd like to put a wood burning stove in. It doesn't get miserable cold in Alabama too much, and if it does, I have plenty of heaters I could plug up in the shop to take the edge off of the cold.

If you have a little extra money you might want to look at Saw Stop. http://www.sawstop.com/?utm_source=b...mpaign=SAWSTOP

That always made me nervous....fire and sawdust together sound like a disaster waiting to happen.

Yea, there would definitely be a lot of thought put into that if I went that route. A shop my brother used to work in had one, but they had dustless systems on all of their saws. That may not be an option with my small shop.
