    thinking about getting box building tools

    do you think all this looks good enough for a beginner to start building boxes, mdf rings, etc with?

    looks great.. but you can get a 10" table saw for much cheaper than that.

    Re: thinking about getting box building tools

    Harbor frieght is cheap, but their tools are cheap :P I've snapped like 17 thousand of their prybars in half. I have a Weller soldering gun and it's a real PITA to use, it's really heavy. I just use my butane powered iron from radio shack most of the time. Cordless ftw!

    Re: thinking about getting box building tools

    I also use Frame Clamps, MDF blade (200 tooth), Jasper Jig, flush bit, round over bit, jigsaw, and a drill w/lots of bits.
    I NEED a better table saw. The router I got from Harbor Freight DOES NOT fit the Jasper. and I need a belt sander and/or planer.
