There's a chap on Youtube, I sometimes look at his video's and his workshop has the nice felder kit, top quality spec clamps,gadgets,every Festool box ever bade etc but Joinery wise he has little knowledge and his cabinet work is very average so having money only means you can buy quality stuff but doesn't equate to making quality products..

Its not Jealousy and I would rather have the knowledge of how to make quality with average priced machinery than have the high quality ,high cost machinery but little knowledge.

I like his shop and machines but it looks cluttered, I guess if you make small items it would be fine. It would be amazing to have a digital spindle moulder and panel saw like he has, I would imagine if you can afford the tooling to go with them they can be a real time saver. I would agree with Leveller that you can own the best machinery around and still not be able to get the most out of it. I started out with some very basic machinery which I used to make doors and window frames with and have upgraded over the years and improved on my tooling to go with it and it does speed thing up but I could not afford or justify buying the machines in that chaps shop LoL. Nice to see it though!

Even my digital calipers have a smashed screen , just another thing to go wrong .
Nice if you are playing but no good for a busy workshop .

I should post a vid of my workshop - it’s a little different from when I started in a garage 😂
