I have in my shop an air compressor and an assortment of nail guns down to 18 ga. This gives me a third arm. I can temporarily tack down parts until I can get a screw into the object I'm working on. I also have a 2700 Powermatic shaper with an extrema power feed. I have a Jet 54 in cabinet saw, I use this all the time and of course a 20 in Jet planer which allows me to buy cheaper rough material.

I haven't started building my flats flyer yet. I just received my plans yesterday.

Another must have tool that never gets mentioned is a Work Mate table. Clamp/Vice/Work table or just a place to set something down...
