I’m going to be building a 4,000 sq/ft shop this coming spring. I sold all my tools from my last shop except some hand tools. This is just for me, I’m not a pro woodworker.

So I’m starting from scratch, decided to buy new, and would like to see the tools in person before I buy. I already know what table saw I want but other than that, I’m needing to choose a drill press, band saw, jointer, drum sander, planer, router table, dust collection etc.

Also would love to see stuff for workshops in general: lighting, fans, storage, etc

Figured a trade show might be a good place to make a trip to even if I have to get on a plane since I’ll be spending a good chunk of change on these purchases, it would be worth it to see in person.

Any recommendations?
