    If you know you’ll be using certain tools alot, then it’s fine to buy the better brands. If not sure, then second hand or cheap brands is good, then upgrade.

    I have a makita table saw that i barely use, only paid $80 for it used. Works good.

    A speed square in a woodworking shop? I know you’re trying to keep to a budget, but do you really want to skimp out on what’s arguably the most important tool in the shop? At least go for some cheaper brand of combination square and leave the speed squares for the framers.

    Buy better tools used if ever possible.

    I recommend going to local estate sales. Many people of the older generation have died and have a huge collection the kids need to get rid of.

    I’m getting a southern Bob Barker vibe here. $1 bob!

    I disagree about pipe clamps. I started out with them but they really aren’t as cheap as one thinks. Threaded black iron pipe isn’t cheap (galvanized doesn’t really work). The clamps aren’t all that much cheaper than others, after the pipe is added in.

    Their performance is poor, too. Notice how much the pipe bends as force is applied to the wood. This deformation is skewing the jaws outward, causing uneven pressure on the ends of the clamp. Iron pipe isn’t nearly rigid enough. Look at the way parallel jaw clamps are made, in comparison.

    Yeah, I started out with pipe clamps but they didn’t last long. …and that was when black iron pipe was dirt cheap. Sure, it’ll take a chunk more out of that $1000 but it’ll be worth it.

    so you can go with super cheap Hart brand tools to begin with, or at least I did. Unfortunately still don’t have a tablesaw or a router.

    Um, Craftsman? Very capable and budget friendly.

    Very cool. Great info
