So you have watched a few episodes of the 'NewYankee Workshop' and want to get into woodworking. You moved thecar out of the garage and are ready to to buy tools. At this pointthe Hingmy machine database looks both daunting and exciting. Sowhat machine should you buy first?

The answer depends on what you want to build. I am going toassert that most beginners want to build medium to large sizepieces of furniture: tables, bookcases, cabinets, and maybe a bed.Built from hardwood and plywood. Most structural pieces are arestraight. Detail

"Drill/driver OK, reciprocating and circular saws are junk. No torque, circular saw won't cut thru a 2x4, reciprocating won't cut a 4x4 without bogging."
"Indeed, this one is the best 12V driver. Get it. You will not be disappointed."
"I use this one for heavy work. It can do it all. None better."
"Love this Router"
"Great driver with only minor issues. App is limited. The last gen is almost as good, yet a lot cheaper."
"This saw replaced a Delta Unisaw in my shop. It's rock solid, powerful, and well made. Fence rivals Biesemeyer or Unifence. Worth the price, IMHO."
"Excellent performance but tough to use at high speed with soft wood, tends to drive too deep before impact kicks in."
"This is my only true drill. The key-less chuck works flawlessly as does the power/speed switch which is handy for drilling various density material."
"A quality sander that performs well day in and day out. Not the best dust bag, that's minor for me. Fits well in my hand and no fatigue with prolonged use."
"A good option for those looking for their first saw, or those looking to upgrade from a "portable" job site saw. Buy a decent blade and you'll be happy."
