Well, it took me 20 years to get the Jeep project done. And I didn’t do the paint, or a lot of the ‘stuff’ that needed special skills/tools. Not a project I recommend. Or will do again.

If I was thinking about getting a decent cyclonic ‘all in one portable’ dust collector, this is the Grizzly that would best suit my needs: https://www.grizzly.com/products/Grizzly-1-1-2-HP-Portable-Cyclone-Dust-Collector/G0860 110v, 15a, includes wireless remote, 1 micron pleated filter. It was fun modifying the HF, but economically, the Grizzly will save you some money.

The HF BS isn’t bad, but again, by the time you spend all the money to ‘tune it up’ and upgrade, you may be better off with a different brand. The Grizzly (if you like their stuff) https://www.grizzly.com/products/Grizzly-14-1-HP-Deluxe-Bandsaw/G0555LX model might be something you want to look at. Comes with a fence and a tension release. At the very least, comparison shop between brands.

I’m a weekend Hack, so I don’t need a lot of luxury brand tools to get projects done. Good luck and stay safe.
