We are about to order some things to help our team be successful moving forward (most of my posts have been related to this). In planning for this, I have been pouring over the incredible Spectrum docs, the Frist 1000, and the first 10000 dollars teams should spend. Our team has some grant money for this, but not 10000 dollars. We are going to be making a super pit, and purchasing some things, however, we are at a point where we will need to make some concessions.
So, my question is, for teams that have all three, how important is it to have a bench grinder, portable grinder, and a belt/disc sander combo?
We currently have an orbital sander. We use 8020 for a majority of our structure but have some incredible mentors who help us by making custom machined parts that we also use.
Given that, info. Is it worth it to have all three ( It really is not about the money, but more about workbench space)?
If not, where would you prioritize for the three?
