I was wondering about this, thinking about a what I will do when (if) I buy a bigger saw to replace my bench-top dewalt.
I've got a sliding compound miter saw, and a MFT so do I really need to build a cross cut sled? Do I need to upgrade the miter fence on the saw? Do I need to get long rails if I can break down wood accurately with my Festool rails?
That got me thinking about what else I don't need/can avoid buying.
Or what I should be buying to enjoy my hobby more?
I have become more and more aware of the impact that repetitive motion is having on my body, so I'm looking to avoid/reduce repetitive hand tasks. So, for example, I'm not sharpening by hand if I can avoid it, and I'll use my planer before I grab a plane.
I don't think I'll cut tenons by hand, so that means I should get a tenon jig for the new saw (I guess) or learn to use loose tenons. Don't think I can justify a Domino given the amount of stuff I do, and the fact that I own a biscuit jointer?
Maybe my tool buying days are coming to an end
And given that we like to share our thoughts here, what are yours?
