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.
