My workshop in Stony Point NY. Ok it still needs a lot of upgrading, but I think I’m off to a good start. Not nearly big enough, but I’m sure thats a common complaint. My list of tools. Sawstop 10” table saw industrial model, absolutely love it. Powermatic 14” bandsaw, very nice saw but wish I had gone with a 17” multi speed so I could cut metal. Maybe next year. Jet 6” jointer, it does the job. Delta drill press, just a hair off center, maybe I need a new chuck. Anyway not very happy with it at the moment. Jet oscillating spindle sander, love it. Jet mortiser, a bit short on power, but a nice machine. Dewalt 13” thickness planer, again it does the job. Jet 16-32 drum sander, nice when you need it, but thats not too often. Craftsman lathe, what can I say, it turns. Delta benchtop shaper, great for the jobsite, not nearly good enough for the shop. Bosch 10” miter saw, nice but I think a festool may be taking its place soon. Craftsman 10” radial arm saw, set it at 90 degees and leave it alone. Shopfox benchtop disc sander, it works well. Lincoln 220V welder, just got it, so far so good. Jet 10” wet stone slow speed sharpener, still in transit. Ok thats about it folks. A list of what I still need. 3HP shaper, maybe a Jet or Delta. Dust collection system, powermatic 2HP should be good enough. Panel saw would be nice, but thats only if I decide to extend the shop into the second garage and then I would really like to add a spray booth, but thats not in the near future. If I do go with the extension that would give me about a 25’x35’ square shop. I think that would be very comfortable. For now I am pretty content with what I have. I have to be or the wife may decide to trade me in for a newer model. Have a great holiday everyone.
