I get a lot of use from my 12 inch slider miter saw, but I could do without it if I had to. As for what is really needed, I guess that depends a good bit on the person and individual requirements. As for me, I’ll wing it and say I need: Table saw, band saw, jointer, planer, router and assorted bits, random orbit sander, circular saw, jigsaw, a few chisels, a hand plane or two, and a shop vac for the mess I make with the listed tools.

Beyond that, the list of stuff that isn’t absolutely necessary but almost so would include my router table, disc sander, lathe and lathe chisels, the miter saw, and a bunch of clamps of all types, a belt sander, drill press, scroll saw, shoulder plane, more routers and a trim router, and of course a workbench with vises.

Also useful – coffee maker, tv, stereo, chairs, more chisels, more hand planes, fridge, beer (for later). I’m sure I forgot some important stuff,
