I am brand new to this site and just wanted to introduce myself. I am new to woodworking and will be in need of much advice. While I'm a newb to woodworking, I have some experience at DIY projects. My current project is to build myself a new garage too accommodate the new table saw I bought. My first question is this: does anyone have an opinion on Freud tools? I have heard that their blades and dados are real good, but differing opinions on their router table. I'm looking at the RTS5000. Thanks in advance!!

Welcome to the forum. I have used freud blades and router bits, but not their power tools yet. Good luck on the garage.

Welcome to the forum, I have also used freud blades. I have a Freud biscuit joiner. I got it from a guy that had two of them. He gave me this one because it has some broken parts. I haven't had a chance to fix it yet. I like the freud blades I have. Good luck on the new garage, I built a new shop last year and I have really enjoyed the new space.

Hello Sikrap...wilkommen from another newb...I'm into DIY, not necessarily a woodworker, but plucking knowledge from these experts should certainly elevate your abilities and motivate you to take on any challenge. You will have a great time here.
