My dad and I bought the the HF dust collector for under $200, a Ridgid planner refurbished for maybe $250 and we finally found a used jointer for a decent price ($250 for a Ridgid one). Took us a while to find the jointer, we were almost ready to buy a new one but we were waiting for Black Friday.
Today I squeezed in 5 hours between rain storms doing various small chores and cutting 60 2x6's to length for roof stringers. I made a measure stick (on the board in first pic) so I didn't have to stretch out a tape measure every time.
The boards have been stored outside on sticks behind my shop for a couple years. Two inches of rain had everything soaked. I used my lawn mower and wagon to bring them to the front of the shop. My pickup is 4wd but it weighs almost 9,000 lbs.
I put the boards back on sticks to dry out. Then I had to make a run up to Indy.
