The picture above shows the bandsaw I built using the things mentioned. It took me a couple months, since I only worked on it in the evenings and on weekends, but I figure I spent around $100 to make me a functioning bandsaw that cuts up to 12 inch logs. A bandsaw like this would have cost me probably $1200 or more to buy commercially. I later invested in a new motor so I could run it on straight 110 single phase instead of 220 volts single phase. That cost me about $200. I also wrote and kept the plans to the saw so that I could either build another one or share the plans with others.
For example, if you were contemplating purchasing the new Husqvarna 450 e-series chainsaw you would ask questions such as is it worth the price; are there comparable saws on the market for less cost, is it easy to start and is it suitable for non to semi-professionals.
A drill press needs much less light, but it needs to be more focused onto the drill press table.
