Suppose you are well on your way to becoming an impractical woodworker. You don’t really care how long it takes to finish a project, or even if it ever gets finished at all, you just really enjoy the craft.
Now suppose that you are begining to really hate power tools. They throw dust and little chips everywhere and scream like a baby at 2 am. And let’s face it, they are kind of scary. If you are careless, (or a klutz), you are risking serious injury.
What saws would you buy? Could you find a set of saws to replace your table saw?
What other tools would you buy in order to make all your other power tools go bye-bye.
Maybe nothing. Maybe just replace power tools as you become disenchanted with them?
