My shop is our two car garage. I have two work benches along the back wall one of which is home to my porter cable sanding station, my Hitachi Miter Saw, and occasionally my Delta scroll saw. I have a skil brand drill press mounted on a shop built cabinet also along the back wall.
I have a Porter Cable pcb270 table saw that some day that has served me well for the last two years but at some day WAY down the road I would like to upgrade it.
I also have a free standing work bench built using these plans from woodsmith . This thing is rock solid and HEAVY. It has taken a beating and shows very little wear for the torture I put it through.
I also use a Craftsman portable router table with the craftsman router. I am not thrilled with this and will eventually build a real router table.
My grinder is just a cheap ryobi but I do very little grinding and this serves me perfectly fine.
Future purchases (probably in this order)
Thickness Planer (leaning towards the grizzly model G0689 or Dewalt DW734)
Bandsaw (Grizzly G0555 with riser block kit)
Jointer (Either grizzly G0452 or the Rigid if I can find it)
I am leaning towards grizzly tools both because they tend to get good reviews but like all tools the occasional bad ones as well and because I live only 2 hours from one of their stores so I could deal with the store in person if I need to.
