Here are some of the major tools I use in my shop.
Table Saw: Ridgid R541110 in. Granite Top Table Saw
I upgraded my yard sale special Skill bench top saw this summer with this saw. I got it on sale during Home Depot's tool sale for $450. All I can saw is wow, what and upgrade. The saw is really really nice for the price! Unfortunately Ridgid has decided to discontinue the saw and Home Depot had them on clearance for less than $300. If you find one scoop it up no questions.
BAND SAW: DELTA 28-276 Professional 14-Inch 3/4-Horsepower
I have been using this saw for a couple of years and it works ok. I'd saw it was a tad underpowered but with a good blade I am able to carve out my bandsaw boxes up to 6" think without too much trouble.
