    If you can afford it and have space for it. Get a dust collection system. I've still don't have one but I'm going to get one. Cutting Hard Wood generates a lot of very fine dust!! I got a old furnace blower, and the first time I powered it up in the shop (with the table saw) I had a very big cloud of dust! (Open floor jests and wall 2 by 4's) I've cleaned allot but the amount of dust and were the dust is surprising.

    Right now using a ShopVac. Need to rig a 2 stage collection system using a 5gal bucket and some extra PVC so I don't clog the vac filter as quickly.

    Funny how this thread migrated...

    Someone mentioned a splitter. This was the best $120 I spent for my cabinet saw (I moved and had to sell the whole set up). Just think of how much a trip to the ER will cost you and that splitter starts looking like a bargin. I've been using woodworking tools since Jr. High and the table saw is the tool that scares me the most.

    Dust collection. I had a Penn State mobile one that was right about $200. I moved it from tool to tool as needed. I used the sawdust as mulch in my garden and flower beds. My yard in Utah needed a ton of organic fill and I didn't throw away wood shavings or lawn clipping in the 6 years I lived there. Here in New Jersey I can't get stuff to stop growing.

    For me it's a toss up between the table saw and router.

    In my experience, the only stuff that grows is weeds (or, at least, plants/grasses I don't want)
