    Default Anyone have that machine you don't know how you did without it!

    I enjoy using all of my Machines but a Vertical Bandsaw is one I can't figure out why I did not have years ago.They are such a versatile machine!!!

    After owning a lathe and mill, I wonder how anyone gets by without 1 of each.

    Every machine I add to my collection becomes indispensable, but probably the most used (and would be sorely missed if gone) is the drum sander. That thing gets used almost every day for deburring and minor shaping of parts. Granted I wouldn't have any parts to deburr if I didn't have the other machines to make the parts-
    I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-

    Not a machine but have to mention anyways: Internet

    Was just talking some days ago with friends about how difficult it would feel to be teleported back to year 1990: Yellow pages, paper maps, fax orders and so on.

    Lathe, pillar drill, milling machine, power hacksaw, floor standing mill-drill, second pillar drill, rage cutoff saw. That covers up until around 10 years ago ;-)
