Hi Wiz, I also started woodworking on my mark5 over 20yrs ago, mostly cause of space and $. I’ve added single purpose tools as $ and skill level warrented. I still use it mostly as a table saw now and to power the bandsaw and jointer, but come spring time I plan on getting a sawstop tablesaw. I’ll keep the mark5 till I can afford to get a standalone bandsaw and jointer. I also picked up 10er that is at least 60yrs old, I cleand it up and it does all my drillpress work, no plans on getting rid of that. Just take the time to set up the SS as accurate as you can and remember a tool is only as accurate and safe as its operator.
