If you live in an area where they publish a "pennysaver" or a "make a deal" or "I Wanna" paper, there are always lots of great items for sale. We have at least two of these publications in our area and I always see lots of shop tools. Yard and Garage Sales are great too.

Well Folks,

Here is what I have in my workshop. Minus all the little extras (clamps, etc.), just plain tools

-Table Saw
-Band Saw
-Belt Sander
-Drill Press
-Router
-JigSaw
-Air compressor (w/ paint cans, nail gun, etc, etc)

This allows me to do everything I could possibly want to do, with the utmost efficiency.

Best,
Patty

$500 isn't a lot to spend but if done properly will certainly get a great start. I have to agree a table saw is the first to buy if you want to build illusions. A good belt /spindle combo sander is available at home depot for $199 and does great on all types of sanding both edges and contour. I just rcently finished building a step base based off Rand Woodbury's book. In my accumulation ofpower equipment the ones I feel are critical are
tabel saw
belt/spindle sanderthey may be more money but a great blade on an average saw will yeild a much better cut and will save you b
electric planer
hand belt sander
drill
4 inch grinder
Band saw
and of course as mentioned all the clamps, bits blades and belts you can get you hands on. And make sure you don't skimp on those buy the best carbide blades you can get

Here is another possible solution try looking at Cummins industrial tools outlet http://www.cumminstools.com/index.htm
they have a lot of tools (name brands too) at bargain pricces. A lot of them are reconditioned by the manufacturer such as Ryobi and are great tools. I am looking at their web site right now and see a 9 inch bench top band saw by Ryobi for $69 I know Home depot had the same saw for $99 also they have a bench top 5 speed drill press for $39, 10 inch bench top table saw $ 79, 1 1/2 hp router $39, 10 inxh compound miter saw $79, air brad nailer $49 , 4 inch angle grinder $9.99 just to name a few. Might just be your way to get your shop going
