Been posting a lot since I joined a week ago and hope it's not getting old for you guys to always read them. So I'm setting up shop, I quickly outgrew the two little sheds out back of my apartment house. Going to rent a friends garage that has the perfect amount of space and it's separated from the house so I don't have to worry about coming and going. It has a wood burning stove, but no AC. I've been doing a lot of research and trying to figure out what I need to get going. Here's a few things I have or am purchasing and would like your input.
First, I need a table saw. Can't afford anything too impressive. I found a guy in town that will sell me his old Craftsman 113.22411, he believes it was manufactured around 1948. He only wants $75. It's a good size with cast iron wings on both sides with the V grooves cut out on them for keeping the weight down, but despite that, this thing is a beast. Pretty similar to this one: VintageMachinery.org - Photo Index - Craftsman - 113.22411
but not nearly as pretty but has the cast iron wings on both sides. I'll post a pic here too. Do you think this is a good one to start with. I had a Bosch Contractors saw and loved it, but it's gone now and I can't afford another one. This think weighs a ton, I went to the local motor rewinding shop and was asking about maybe getting a new motor to lighten up the weight and he said it would probably cost a couple hundred dollars so that's not really worth it. Wish I could attach a under table router to it since I plan to build a horizontal table so this way I'd have both.
So other things I have are:
---Freud 8" stacking dado blade
---Plunge and fixed base router, old fixed B&D 3315 Type 2B 1.5 HP (?) router (pictured schematic), just like the old dewalt dw610 (?) but not as powerful. it doesn't have the adjustment pinion anymore and I use a c-clamp to lock it into place, so I'm trying to decide whether to wait it out till I can find another base for it on ebay, or just buy another fixed one.
---Bosch Palm Router
---A few various 1/4" shank router bits
---Old Craftsman drill press with removable drill pictured.
---A delta drum sanding kit for drill press
---Delta Mortising kit
---Kreg complete pocket hole jig set
---Both Circular and Framing saw
---Bosch orbital and sheet sander
---Makita 3 1/2" belt sander
---Bosch driver and impact 18v set
---Hitachi 1/2" hand drill
---The Porter Cable compressor and three nail gun combo
---Kobalt 10" compound sliding miter saw (may have to find a hand saw/mitrekit for more precise miters
---4 1/2" angle grinder
---Makita spade drill, high torque, low rpm
---25 gallon compressor with decent cfm output
---Small five gallon shop vac
---A number of hand planes (forgive me if I don't use the correct names) longer wooded jack plane, shorter jack plane, a few block planes and a Stanley no. 78 Duplex rabbeting plane that I haven't figured out how to use with limited time.
---Assortment of chisels, files and rasps
---Plastic and Metal sawhorses but want to build some nice adjustable ones.
---Assortment of measuring tools, squares, combo, tri and multi
---Various clamps, mostly cheap, and some small corner miter clamps (good for picture frames)
So that's the list. Some of those tools are more for carpentry/tile setting, but I just went ahead and included them.
So any help you can give me on what purchases I need to look out and save up for or build would be great. General shop set-up advise would be very much appreciated too.
Thanks for reading,
