Default wisdom for starters

Hi, I am new and want to start my home workshop. I live in Australia and the choices seem limited, but am looking for a good cabinet saw and router (table). I appreciate any wisdom that could be imparted to me.

David; Hi! Pretty impressive starting out with a cabinet saw. Good choice.
May I recommend Jim Tolpin's book on tablesaws?
Amazon.com: Jim Tolpin's Table Saw Magic, Second Edition (9781558706774): Jim Tolpin: Books
Really well illustrated and very readable.

Get yourself the saw, then build a router table the same height or just a bit lower to use as an infeed/outfeed table. You can buy a decent ready made router table top or make your own.

Second bit of advice... what are you planning on making in your shop? Do you even need the table saw this early?
