Thanks everyone for your well thought-out responses and sharing your wisdom and experience with me. My motivation is to make my shop more efficient and reliable. I am a fairly good mechanic and do enjoy maintenance and refurbishing/repairing machinery. However, I am feeling the need to get some woodworking done. I also feel that we are in a golden age of machinery and mechanical engineering. When I started driving it was impressive to get over 100k miles on a car before pulling the head off. Now a car with 100k miles is barely broken in ( a little exaggeration but you know what I mean). So far it seems like opinions are split between favoring old vs new machines with more responses favoring older machines. Thanks again and please share any further thoughts you have.
