  1. Thanks. I was thinking along the same lines as you. I'm just trying to decide if I should get a better TS and try and do all cutting on that, or the track saw route. I would love the Makita or Festool Track Saw, but the Grizzly pricing saves me some money to put towards a router and material for projects.
  2. What size bench did you make? Since I was going to get a circular saw, I came across the track saw. I like the option of dust collector that the circular saw doesn't have. My Craftsman TS had no extension. Just a small job site 10 inch. One of my options was to get a better TS or go the track saw route since I already have a miter saw for majority of my cross cut needs. Unfortunately my TS has no wing extension.
  3. Yes, Ron Paulk has a plan available for a 3x6 workbench. The 10x10 is the general area I have available. I have some more available in the basement but it's a multi functional space so I try and keep everything in that 10x10 area. Figured with Paulks workbench, I can stand it up against a wall when not in use.
  4. I was thinking of something like this: http://www.grizzly.com/products/Router-Table-with-Stand/T10432 with the DeWalt DW618PK router. Or going the route of one of those compact Ron Paulk workbenches with built in router plate. Is it possible to use a router to drill out 20mm holes for bench dogs? I guess, is it possible to use the plunge router to drill holes? I like the Makita but it was double the price of the Grizzly. I was thinking with the savings, I can invest in a better Freud blade for finish cuts.
  5. How about router and router table setup? Do you recommed that? If so, do you recommend a router table like the Rockler setups or make your own better?
  6. I was considering this bandsaw: Grizzly G0555LX Do you recommend the track saw or should I invest in a better table saw?
  7. I'm realizing the space is an issue as well. I'm hoping to get tools that will give me good results but can store away as I don't have a space to setup a permanent wood shop. If anyone as alternatives to the tools listed that will work with good results, I'm open to all suggestions. Thanks
  8. I'm planning on taking on some projects around the house and new to DIY. Projects include building a built in closet, building a new bathroom vanity and storage, building desk furniture with storage, and some trim work. I currently own a 12 inch DeWalt sliding compound miter saw and some drills and basic tools. I have a older 10 inch Craftsman table saw that was given to me as well. I'm looking to invest in some woodworking tools like a Grizzly track saw, band saw, drill press, and router (with router table). I work out of my basement as i have no garage. I can get a 10x10 area to work i
