Welcome to the forum. Some more details would help in making recommendations mate...what's your budget, how big is your workspace and what are your intentions for your workshop? You will find loads of help here, but best to provide as much info as possible.

Trying to get the main bits of kit ,table saw, planner thicknesser, band saw. i have other kit as i work for myself.. well to be honest im a tool nut !!! went mad on the 14% off deal at rutlands this week!! I'm trying to get the best i can. garge is 8.5m long by 4.8 m wide and is detached from the house with singe phase. im going to be making bespoke furniture, doors, staircase etc. getting asked for this through my building/joinery side of the bussiness but have to sub it out because i'm not setup. I,m willing to spend to get it right,budget is a £2000/3000 ish but can go up a bit. Its not going to be used every day so i need to draw a line somewhere.

Have you thought about the fact that you would be running a business from home etc? The extra cost implications?

Buy 2nd hand off Ebay. Scheppach, Startrite, Sedgwick etc. You'll get more for your money. But then maybe buy new when it comes to powertools and SCMS.
