I have mostly used a power hammer so my experiences are more one sided. 

Both have advantages and disadvantages. If I am making the machine then certainly a power hammer, although the press is basically a jack.

If I was going to be serious about blades, it would be my first shop purchase.

Only thing I still need to replace is my anvil since moving. Had a 75 pd thinking of going with a 120 and a 80.

Since you have a dwelling in the shop as well not sure insurance would like it happening in or on the outside of the building.

Myself it would be inside since I dislike the cold, although if the shop will be doing lots of different projects metal is probably the easiest to do in the elements to save the space inside.

DC knives is a cool site been using it for years, donated a few templates there also.

Well, shop is built. Started re-buying trade specific tools.

Main three things to do still is buy a anvil, build a power hammer and also build a 2x72 belt grinder.

Should I post crap here as I go or start a new thread? Right now I have some templates I have made and some other basic stuff that always has to be done building a metal working space.
