Hello from West Virginia
Ok a brief intro:
Hmmm let's see where to start. Ok over the last 20 or so years my dad has been into wood working and has enjoyed it. I loved to see his finished products but time has passed and his health isn't the best and I have deceided to let him teach me a few things. He did smaller things like rocking horses from patterns, wagons and other gift items. I have taken part of my garage and set up a couple of homemade work tables that dad and I built one is 4ft long and the other is 8ft long. Right now I have a small 10 inch drill press, circular saw, power drill, 10 inch compound miter saw, some squares, other hand tools screwdrivers etc., belt/disc sander as soon as I get it repaired and a random orbital sander. spiral waw (Rotozip) oh and a 16 inch scroll saw that I have been practicing on. I also own a jig saw and I have no idea how old it is but I have a package of 5 blades that cost 57 cents. Ok I need a new jigsaw I'm sure. Now I'm not sure what I want to make but I am willing to try anything.
Wide open question here but what other tools should I have in my shop? I know it probably depends on what I am going to make.
2nd question when you buy tools to you buy the best or the best you can afford at that time?
