Hi. I'm a newbe to the forum. I've read this forum in the past and realize it's packed with good advise. So I'd appreciate any that you could provide on a decision i need to make. I am interested in a table saw, jointer and planar. When i read the wood magazines, they all say to buy the most expensive tool you can afford. However, I'm not sure i need the "best"... perhaps i only need a good set of tools? I am a hobby person.... haven't had time for a lot of wood working in the past, but would like to get more involved, now that the kids have left the nest and find i have more time. So my best line up (based on where i can look at these things and touch them) is a General 50-185MI table saw, General 80-100L Jointer and a DeWalt 735 Planer. My good line up is a Ridgid TS3650 table saw, Ridgid 6P0610 Jointer and Ridgid Planar. Price differential is $835. Since i haven't had an opportunity to use any of these models, i hope you could offer some advise. Many thanks.
