Howdy from the NW

I have officially reached the ranks of the real woodworkers. I received for Christmas from my woodworking father, a Delta 3 horse left tilt saw, with a biesmeyer fence. The saw is huge. The saw I had before was a small delta tailgate type model. I got everything set on the saw, had to run the 220, etc. Now I am ready to make some dust .

Both my brother and father are quite accomplished woodworkers, so I am ready to continue the tradition.

I found this forum and thought it would be a good place for some additional advice.

Other tools I have, many of them hand me downs. A delta chop saw, I think its a makita plunge router on a nice table, a band saw. My next tools that I am eyeing are. Drill press, and jointer. But before that I need to replace my battery powered drill.

Anyone have suggestions. I have heard the Makita Litium Ion is not a great tool.

My choice of a cordless drill was a 12v dewalt. I have my second one and it stills works, so 2 in 21 years is bood.
