We test a fair number of tools and machines here at Popular Woodworking, but some years generate a different crop of “Best New Tools” than other years.

In 2005, we actually didn’t get to test as many of the serious cast-iron machines as we usually like. This wasn’t part of some plan, it just worked out that way. Look for us to make up some time in that department in 2006. But as a result, you aren’t going to see any table saws, planers or band saws on this year’s list.
