I am just now setting up my workshop in 1/2 of my 24×30 garage. My Harley won’t let me have more than that and that won’t be changing any time soon 8-). Newly purchased equipment (just arrived or in transit) includes; Grizzly G0690 TS, 14” Rikon BS (10-325), Grizzly G0593 8” Jointer w/Spiral Cutter, Triton 3 1/4hp plunge router, Ridgid 13” 3-blade Planer (R4330), and a Harbor Freight 2hp 110v dust collector (for only $179). I also have a 12” Ridgid MS, 8” drill press, 16” Delta Scroll saw, and assorted hand tools.

The 24×30 garage has a 125amp box on a 100amp breaker from the main 200amp feed. I have added 10-2awg 220v 20 and 30amp circuits for the BS and TS respectively, and a dedicated 110v 20amp circuit for the DC.

Mike, I agree with Jim. How about posting some pictures of your shop when you get the opportunity?

Right now things are a mess (except for the Harley corner) with partially unpacked BS, DC, Planer, and un-installed wiring. The TS is not due until ~6/25/10. I’ll snap a few images once I start to get organized. Not sure you could see past all the boxes at the moment.

Hi Mike

Sounds like you are doing it the right way. I started putting a shop in when I retired two years ago and just love it. I am still working on it, but am mostly done except for some more storage cabinets and getting the hand tools hung up. I keep getting honey do projects and now a new grandchild is comingthat is coming that needs a crib and dresser. Looking forward to seeing your shop pictures. If you have not guessed it yet, this group LOVES pictures!

God Bless

Mike, this is a shop space that I would enjoy working in. It looks like you have plenty of room in there to maneuver around and you have ample headroom as well. Your shop appears pretty well organized to me and you also have a nice set of tools to play with.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Mike, that’s a great shop that you have there. You have all kinds of nice equipment and tools. I see lots of toys too. I love the bike and the telescope. I sure am sorry about your running over that deer and I’ll bet that sure spoiled your day in a hurry. I hope that you’ve recovered from that.
