    Mobile bases?

    I put this mobile base under my table saw and have been extremely satisfied with it, https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0000DD6B9/ref=sxts_kp_bs_tr_1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_p=8778bc68-27e7-403f-8460-de48b6e788fb&pd_rd_wg=dHHXz&pf_rd_r=JEP06TX7NRRFGBF6CYS1&pf_rd_s=desktop-sx-top-slot&pf_rd_t=301&pd_rd_i=B0000DD6B9&pd_rd_w=FHGJi&pf_rd_i=shop+fox+mobile+base&pd_rd_r=119f6f95-3b39-422c-ba78-c361c939754b&ie=UTF8&qid=1543186608&sr=1 When set to be stationary it's solid as a rock and the base itself is very heavy duty.

    Need Tool DC Hose

    I have this one and it works very well for me, https://www.amazon.com/Cen-Tec-Systems-Premium-Vacuum-Extension/dp/B076N1CR42/ref=sr_1_3?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1542238543&sr=1-3&keywords=cen+tec&refinements=p_72%3A1248915011%2Cp_36%3A1253524011 I like the fact that its 30' long which lets me use it for both sanding and shop cleanup.

    Bandsaw help

    I think a phone call to Grizzly, 800-523-4777, would get you an answer right away. I doubt if there were to many models of 18" bandsaws in the Z Series.

    Wood Slicer for Rikon 14" - 1/2" or 3/4"

    I use a 1/2" blade on my Rikon 10-325. I find it difficult enough to tension the 5/8" blade that came with my saw and I figured a 3/4" would be a real challenge. For the resawing I do the 1/2" works fine for my needs.

    Drill bits

    Don't have this set myself but this set may be what you're looking for, https://www.woodcraft.com/products/woodriver-100-piece-combo-brad-point-and-twist-drill-bit-box Good is probably a good description of what the quality level of these bits are.

    Jigsaw vs bandsaw

    Your considering a higher quality jigsaw vs an entry level bandsaw. In the long and short run you will be better off with the jigsaw. I'm not going to bad mouth the WEN band saw however I would suggest you keep an eye out for a used 14" or larger bandsaw. Those small bandsaw might be OK for certain woodworkers but overall a 14" or larger will serve you better now and down the road.

    Table Saw Blade Speed?

    My 3HP cabinet saw runs at 4300 RPM. I offer that only as an informational tool as I'm by no means an expert at those sort of things.

    Jig Saw Drift

    I've always had very good luck with the Bosch Progressor Series of blades. In your case, I suggest you give this blade a try, https://www.homedepot.com/p/Bosch-4-1-2-in-Progressor-High-Carbon-Steel-T-Shank-Jig-Saw-Blade-Set-for-Cutting-Wood-3-Pack-T234X3/100119348?keyword=bosch+t234x3

    Grizzly Jointer Vent/Rant

    I'm racking my brain trying to come up a "pretty reasonable cause" for a customer having to wait 9+ months for anything in this day and age. Still racking...........

    New style Rikon band saw guides

    You do not have to remove the fence rail on the 10-325 to change the blade.

    New style Rikon band saw guides

    I purchased the updated guide kit for my 10-325 awhile back when Woodcraft had them on sale for $99. The newer style guides made all the difference in the world when it comes to adjusting the guides. If I had known the huge difference they made I would have ponied up the money a lot sooner. The difference this kit makes in adjusting the lower guides alone makes it a worthwhile buy.

    woodpecker saw blades

    I've been using Ridge Carbide TS2000 on my table saw for years. I think that they are as good as any premium blade out there. There is plenty of carbide on the teeth so they will take numerous sharpening's.
