Great miter saw! Love that is has a smaller footprint than typical miter saws
There are a bunch of cheap versions, this has worked for me.
Great for marking fine lines, holds an edge for a long time.
The single most used tool in the shop!
I've used a bunch of microphones in the past, this is by far my favorite!
Awesome boom arms! You can buy cheaper versions (like I have) but you will regret it after the first time you try to adjust it live.
Increase material thickness by 6 in and add a rotary kit to the Full Spectrum Muse Laser
http://I've had several orbital sanders in the past and this one has lasted the longest.
This was a step up from a construction style table saw. Has been great!
It can't handle huge boards but is really handy to adjust the thickness of smaller ones.
A pretty small drill press that covers the vast majority of use cases.
This is the main lens I use, great price for what you get.
This is a 4-6W laser engraver, very useful for small projects for the price.
Does a great job dimensions my lumber. Gets a little dicey for longer pieces but great for the small ones!
This is the first audio interface I used and was great. Lets you use XLR microphones with a computer.
Lots of use cases, but mainly use it to test connections in electronics
Awesome budget friendly diode laser engraver. Huge work area!
Great all around router.
Really good solder station, digital temperature read out is a big plus.
Probably the most used tools after the table saw
This is a combination audio interface and external recorder. There are much cheaper options but Sound Devices is rock solid.
This is my workhorse camera, nearly all videos since 2019 have been shot on it.
This is my #1 microphone recommendation for people just starting out.
It took awhile to put together but man do I love using this thing. Pretty crazy when work is getting done and you can work on something else!
Awesome on camera microphone.
Great for curves and with the riser you can resaw to save on lumber.Great for curves and with the riser you can resaw to save on lumber.Great for curves and with the riser you can resaw to save on lumber.
Great small microphone transmitter and receiver
This is my go to square in the shop.
A vinyl cutter can be very helpful. We make lots of stencils for painting with it.
This laser is one the workhorses in my shop. I LOVE using it!
Best bang for you buck if you are looking to print larger items.
Awesome lav microphone. I use this when I'm working a good ways away from the camera.
A great system to assemble furniture fast with pocket holes
