What should be the next tool?
I have two routers, a drill press, a miter saw and a 7 inch circular saw. I do not feel that affordable table saws are safe. I am considering band saws the most expensive of which is the Laguna 14 inch, and I am looking at others such as the Grizzley line and the Shop Fox 14 inch with the extenders.
Am I thinking along the right lines or should I be looking at other things? I generally use big box lumber or local retail places; I am not aware of any lumber yards. I am an amateur hobbyist woodworker who first learned about router use from the Router Workshop and consider myself a student of Honored Member Harry.
One other consideration for those who do not know is that I am a paraplegic so live in a wheelchair.
Thanks very much.

- Wood working, especially router work is too much fun to let "disabilities" get in the way.
