Of course you would need to install industrial trac hoists to move the work from one station to the next and maybe a gantry crane to off load all the high end materials. I'm a little leery of one big shop so I would probably have a few mid size buildings. A 40x70 for the wood shop and another for a woodmizer mill, a kiln and lumber storage. I'd probably have a 32x54 machine shed for a couple of tractors and a sweet 3500 series wood hauling truck. I would probably ad on to one building for a man cave. I would probably hire a semi driver to haul all the stuff back from Grizzly.

If you had 400 million to spend I would set my standards higher than woodmizer and grizzly. We would still be doing woodworking for a hobby even if we had a 5 million dollar shop. I think just a forklift would be fine for unloading stuff.

I'd be perfectly content with those levels of tools...after all I wouldn't need tools that ran 24/7...

Plus surplus fighter jets can cost a lot to maintain.....id save money where I could in my shop.

Anyone know how much a 6000 foot runway costs to build?

You said here that you would go with state of the art new stuff. Now your trying to save money with grizzly. Why do you need fighter jets anyway.

It seems everyone has needs from jet fighters to equipment that has rusted away more than me.

I didn't hear anyone come home to the wife and say "we just won the lottery go pack your bags".
She says for "Warm weather or cold?"
Don't care just be gone by the morning

Cut it twice, measure once and it's still too short.

Lol....how do you think I'm going to get to warm climates? Fighter jet wing pylons make perfect suitcase holders.

We get our winnings tax free for a year. The jackpots are not as big..so it probably works out pretty even but I guess if you play it right you could walk away with a nice chunk of change.

I've never had luck with lotteries..but it sure is fun to dream.

Yeah I guess a forklift would do the job but I'll argue my choice on the WoodMizer sawmill. For portable mills they are pretty well built. And I would have several large tracts of land to haul it too for cutting trees from.

My wife and I both agree we had some of the happiest times when we were poor.

Having said that. If I won the lottery it would ruin me. But before it did I'd have a real little house with my 1000 sq ft shop out back.

That's all I need.

Ya know I don't think money would make me any happier. It would just allow me to devote more time to my hobbies. I'd really enjoy taking care of family and friends.

Money can't bug happiness so they say. I argue that to a point, exactly as you stated. I'd have plenty more time to devote to family, which is where my happiness lies. Kids grow up too fast.
