    Prepare to get 300 different answers. I think taking your material costs and multiplying by some factor(usually see 3x) is inaccurate at best. Next method that will be suggested is estimate how many...

    I have had a 6,8,12, and now 20. 12 is a good machine, but Phillip is right, bigger is always better. I’d imagine 16” to be a fantastic size. I don’t have too many boards greater than 16”. I have...

    Tim,

    Most safety measures are as simple as you put it. Being safe around a table saw is as simple as "dont put your hand in the spinning blade". As far as the jointer, if you use push blocks for...
