Starting over is a mixed blessing... It's not often that someone sells their entire woodshop. What's that line - lock, stock and barrel?
Well, I pretty much did that, selling the woodworking school with its entire contents intact - all of the Festool gear (including both Dominos and the track saw), three Sawstops, a kick-ass 12" jointer and the 24" planer, and more.
And setting up a new shop is great... I've had five or six shops in my lifetime, and each one allows me to tweak what doesn't work, and add what new features I need. That's where I'm at right now - and let me say - it's pretty damn exciting!
In addition to the two tools I could never live without (a good tablesaw and a quality planer) - I just ordered a new panel saw. This is a luxury that I've learned I can't live without, and for me - it takes the place of a track saw, a radial arm saw, and even a tablesaw, since it rips wood like a dream. When working alone, I've found this tool to be invaluable.
