(Too_Many_Tools) doth burble:
Say you want to setup a home shop for both metal and wood
working....what older American or European machines would you choose to
populate the shop with? <snip>
It this pretend, or for real? I won't bother if it's pretend,
there'll be plenty of others willing to do that. If it's for real, you
didn't say if it's for you, or something I'd choose for myself. Either
way, the sanswer is the same. It depends.
It depends on:
Whait is actually needed versus what is only wanted, space available,
money available, etc. Details, details, details.
It wouldn't make sense to recommend a huge metal lathe, if all you
want or need is a lathe to make model parts. As far as I'm concerned
you just tossed a blanket question out, with insufficient details to
allow a viable response. More details. And a forklift? For a home
shop? If you really need onc, it's probably be more cost effective to
rent one, plus it wouldn't be sitting around taking up space.
It was too early in the morning for it to be early in the morning. That
was the only thing that he currently knew for sure.
