Wow, the more I visit this forum the more I like it. I should have mentioned that I already have an old jigsaw and a cordless drill with spare batteries. I didn't consider the drill a woodworking tool and its been so long since I've used the jigsaw I forgot I had it!! I will definitely keep an eye on Lowes for that brad nailer and compressor for $120. I would have thought that a compressor would be a few hundred bucks. I just retired, so I have plenty of time to do garage/estate sales. That's how I picked up some nice planes. Thanks folks!!

Two words BLACK FRIDAY !!!!
You can find some of the best deals on tools on Black Friday for some very cheap prices.

I first bought. #1Table saw
All just to get boards flat,even and straight.
Then I just picked up the tools as I needed them.
The rest of the tools are cheaper and bought some of them on Craigslist as well as the joiner and planer.A sample of the prices are:
Jet 6" joiner for $350, Delta 12-1/2"Planer $180, Grizzly 1hp dust collector $80, Delta Mortiser $ 80,
A lot of people are selling off equipment to make their bills so there are a lot of good buys on Craigs.
I bought a $40 dado stack at Lowes but the bottoms looked like the New York skyline so I returned it and bought Frued! Live and learn I guess.
