Spring has come once again and it’s time to not only clean up the shop but update some pictures. My latest projects have been a new workbench/outfeed/assembly table and additional french cleat organization to include more clamp racks and additional storage.

I love your shop! How everything has it’s place and is easy to see and find. Very nice.

I saw your fire extinguisher and made a note to get one for mine. Good thinking.

Have you ever heard of Little Red Caps? Here is a link so you can see what I’m talking about….but they are just stretchy end caps pretty much and are great for covering up ports on pneumatic tools when they aren’t being used. Thought I would share incase you would be interested for your nail guns.

A very nice, well equipped shop. Is that a HF Dust collector I see over there? If so, how is the sucking power with the pvc pipe up there on the ceiling? Thnx for your responses.

Roger, that is the HF Dust Collector. It works great with plenty of suction along both the branch I have that goes along the wall and the one that goes across the ceiling and goes to the table saw and jointer. I did upgrade it with a cartridge style filter and added a chip separator.

Thnx Mike. I don’t know if you have thought about a remote for this collector, but, Santa gave me one of these for Christmas and it works just fine: PSI Woodworking LR110-3 110-Volt Long Ranger Dust Collector Switch. It came from Amazon, but, PennSt Ind. has them as well. I’m eventually going to put up some solid piping of some kind. Just don’t know when I’ll get round to it.

I do have that remote for the DC and it is a huge help. I can’t imagine having to walk back and forth to turn in on and off again.
