Welcome to Lumberjocks Ben.
I think this is how most of us started.
I had this crappy craftsman saw that my neighbor gave me. It was really bad but I didn't let that stop me.
I also had a 3 wheeled band saw that my wife's boss gave me.
I had a lot of fun and I learned a lot.
your starting as most here have,my first ts was a cheap makita job site saw which made cutting 4×8 sheets a real pita,but it got me going and grew from their.have fun,i love that your here to participate and not just lurk in the shadows,we need more of that here.
Like the others have said, we all started in a similar situation. I always said I started with C and D grade tools and have worked my way up. They are all gone now, but with better tools have more come age….I think I'd rather have the lesser tools back and only get up to pee once a night again!! You'll get there keep on pluggin away.
