My wife is out of the kitchen for a bit so I can mention the word tools, but just in writing, not out loud.
I have just about 3 of every tool made for woodworking. I cannot afford Festools. I do have some old B and D tools which still work very well. Favorite router is an old Makita Redline. I also have a couple of Craftsman Routers that I only use with my dovetail machine. I also have a Bosch router that's nice to work with. I have a monster 3hp Freud router as well.
I used to work part time with my cousin framing homes here in Calgary so I have an old Emglo 2hp compressor to tote around along with me on odd jobs. I have looked after it so it looks like new. It's almost 25 yrs old.
My pride and joy is my 10 inch tablesaw. It's a 3hp Rockwell Unisaw. Turn it on without a blade in it and all you hear is a low hum. With a blade in it, you hear the whistle made by the blades teeth. Totally accurate cuts. It has a Biesemeyer fence and I like my Incra Miter guide. I have an Elu miter saw and a Makita 10 inch slider.
I am of the opinion that a lot of the more recent power tools are built to be used for a month or two and then thrown away. I have a lot of battery powered tools but like some others here I have been caught reaching for corded tools more and more.
