I've always thought these things were mandatory for machining. Like everyone has one?
I'm a welder by trade lol so it was new to me few years ago, I just used larger drill bit or I used a chipper blade with a handle welded mostly just a flapper wheel for de-burring stuff as I didn't do the finishing on machined things just the install.I've always thought these things were mandatory for machining.

Fair I just buy stuff as I can afford so hasn't been much that I have waited for in a sense, just stuff I can't afford yet. So the little things that make my work go faster and make it look less DIY make me happy.So yes, a deburring tool is nice to have, but personally I wouldn't call them a tool I wish I bought earlier.
Me too!!!! Except mine is BXA. Perhaps I’ll be able to find someone that’s just starting out who really needs BXA and then I can join the Multifix crowd. (I’ll probably join the power drawbar crowd first though…)I looked hard at a Multifix system before I went w/ my AXA.
Deep down I knew a 4x6 horizontal saw wasn’t going to be adequate but I bought one anyway. Fast forward 2 years and I found someone to buy it and bought a 7x12. MUCH better!So my metal 7x12 band saw also is one item that I wish I could have had earlier in life and although I don't use it all the time, I sure am glad to have it.
Honestly I've had my multi-cutter oscillating whatever tool they want to call it, the nice cordless Dewalt one, for a while now and I don't find it that useful.
BTW, it is $2 cheaper than BB at Amazon. See https://www.amazon.ca/Wixey-Model-WL133-Drill-Press/dp/B01NAT54TX/Thanks Degen. I could see getting value out of that if it works well. I think I'll order one and report back. If it works, maybe I'll get two more for the mill and drill/mill. Most things I do are just hand aimed. With the loss of my left eye, I am having trouble lining things up easily.
I have one too. @slow-poke is right. I don't use it often but when I do, I'm glad to have it. Mine is the small M12 Milwaukee. It is most useful in really tight quarters where nothing else will fit. It's sorta like a 2" long hacksaw with no need for saw clearance. Hard to describe. But when you need it, the solution is obvious.
I even have a drywall cutout tool, so it really isn't super useful for me.I bought a Milwaukee M18 oscillating tool for one use, cleaning out grout lines in the last bathroom Reno....100% worth the money for that use, does a pretty nice job of cutting out boxes in drywall as well
But really aside from that I haven't found much use for it, some guys do love them though
