Hi Chele,
I use a large table saw with a vacuum dust pick-up. Also a wire feed
welder is nice (one that uses gas), and a hand grinder. Also a chop saw
(for metal) is useful. For small stuff, a scroll saw is nice (mine got
stolen though). It must have been just a bit to nice. A lot of this
boils down to how much room do you have, and how much $$$ you can
spend.

If you were going to create a decent machine/wood shop...not incredibly

fancy (don't need a planer or anything), what items would you get? So
far, I've come up with:
drill press
miter saw
band saw
drum sander
band sander
lathe (possibly)
hand held tools: drills, jigsaws, wrenches, sockets, etc.

What others can you think of?

Chele
