That won't be for years! Your duplex needs a workbench. Basement or garage

Nah, that doesn't sound like something I want to move.

Corey has a lot of projects in mind and needs to buy some tools. Corey, show us what you're building and the tools you want.

Here are my picks for your compound sliding saw.
Roybi
Kobalt

My Harbor Freight one I got for $90 isn't bad, but don't expect to do any fine work with it. It's great for framing, but when you need an exact 45% for trim it will come up short. It also didn't come zero'd in and that took a lot of fixing...and it still isn't great.

Speaking of HF. They have their 20% off coupon in this week's ad. I have read a lot of stories of people using this coupon in Lowes or Home Depot.

Corey, did you settle on a drill/driver combo?

I already have a decent drill so I won't buy that unless there is a great deal.

I have been strongly considering https://slickdeals.net/f/9833743-makita ... e-free-s-h but idk if I want to invest in a brand that will cost me so much more down the road when I want to buy compatible tools (although they'd all be top of the line).

I'll likely just go with Ryobi as their One+ 18v line has a ton of items and they're all cheap and fine for what I'd use them for. This summer I'll probably get a weed whacker compatible with what I buy for the drills soon.

I just went all in on woodworking things. I'm apparently brand loyal without ever using any of these things:

To install our cabinet pulls - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01JQ ... UTF8&psc=1

(and our cabinet pulls) - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01D0 ... UTF8&psc=1

Kreg pocket hole system - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001D ... UTF8&psc=1

Kreg pocket hole screws - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001D ... UTF8&psc=1

Plugs for the Kreg Jig holes - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000G ... UTF8&psc=1

Kreg 90º clamp - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001D ... UTF8&psc=1

Kreg face clamp - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001D ... UTF8&psc=1

And a Kreg rip cut (trying this instead of buying an expensive table saw) - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007K ... UTF8&psc=1

Dang. You love Kreg! Do you already own a circular saw? I was thinking that saw thing was on a track, but it just runs along the edge of the board.

They have a lot of neat things! Found the cabinet pull thing today and that will be a huge help over a paper template.

Next weekend I'll likely buy a circular saw and miter saw.

10" is all you need for 90% of work. Most 10" can cut a 4x4 post and have a 12" reach on 1" boards, why do you need a bigger blade?!

Because bigger is always better? I know I would likely never need a 12" but I just always want really nice things!

It is really hard not to pay a bunch extra for features that I don't need.
