Ok, i know what equipment to get, and i got some already (Power Drill, Belt Sander, chizel, hammers, rubber malets, straight edges, ect...)

I am getting a Band Saw, Drill Press, table saw, dremel, and Router) I need to know what size i should buy them in. How big they need to be to build guitars. I wanna buy the right stuff, just i dont wanna buy these HUGE power tools for HUGE prices, when i dont need them. ya know?

All i am planning on doing is building guitars and basses. Maybe some other minor wouldwork stuff too. Here is what ive found so far.

I dont think a 9" ban saw will be large enough, and i dont think that one will have the power to cut through a peice of mahogany or maple. the rest looks like it will be fine, but you definatly want a bigger ban saw. maybe a jig saw, it will be a rougher cut, but you sand a guitar like nobodies bisiness anyway. If youre dead set on a band saw, the 14 inch would probably do the best, it's more powerfull and it also will alow you to do almost the whole guitar in one cut, you wont have to stop to cut places that wont fit in the 9 inch. if you are going to use that idea, use releif cuts! a scroll saw might also do you well, as it's cheeper and has the size to do the job you need it to. here's the link for the scroll saw: http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=productDetail&productId=233017-79992-SM600&lpage=none

Oh, and i need help/info on fretting. I need to know how to remove frets, and install them. What tools will i need?? What supplies will i need??
Can you use a Bench Vice as a means to press the frets???

I am also planning on doing the electronics for the guitars too. I know i need a soldering iron and stuff. But, what else will i need to do that??? Im new to the guitar electronics part.
Will this soldering iron work????

whoa dude, this sounds like your first time modding/building guitars, maybe you should do a few smaller projects before your spend a huge ass amount on this nice equipment, and if youre set on building you could use a friend's shop or something, idk, thats just me...

but hey, if youre up for go all out, im working on my first project and love it so far... so yeah!
