Talking New in Ohio!!

Hello All! I just move to Ohio and will be setting up a new shop. I have been playing around with big box store brands for years, but now that I have finished graduate school and have a real paying job, I can get some real power tools.

Current plant is to add: PCS 3 HP 36" sawstop, jet drill press, Laguna band saw, and unsure yet on a joint/planar combo..

Hopefully, I can get some opinions and experience on these, along with, hopefully, some local guidance on supplies...

Here is a picture of my most recent job, (one off the honey due list for the new house), 15'x10' oak library built in, with custom rolling ladder--no kit.

Looking forward to discussion with everyone.

Welcome from a former Buckeye.....that is a worthless nut. Or a nut with no economic value.

Consider buying used tools. One good source is the local woodworking club. Frankly, many club members are aging out and retiring from woodworking. I have found some excellent tools at a fair price that way. They are usually well-maintained, and the sellers often include related accessories - extra blades, jigs, etc. Many of the members are eager to see their tools get a good home with a younger member.

Old tools can be superior to the newer ones. I recently bought a 1953 Delta 890 bandsaw in superb condition for a very reasonable price. I suggest that it is as good or better than a comparable modern bandsaw bought new.

(The same person also sold me a DeWalt DW735 three-blade planer. It is the planer I wanted, but it cost too much to buy new. Someday I might have compromised and bought a new two-blade DeWalt 734, which is the lesser model. A used DW735 is a better solution for me - I got the tool I wanted for a fair price. Like the bandsaw, it was lovingly maintained, and I bought it in ready-to-run condition. Oh yeah, it came on a home built rolling cart/stand with locking casters.)

Welcome to the forum! When you get a minute please add your first name and location to your profile. Right now we know Ohio but that will soon be forgotten as you post more and your name just helps us know who we're talking to.

That's a nice looking library, for sure. Good job!
