« Part 9: Progress -- Sweet, sweet, PROGRESS! Part 10 of Garage Re-Do series Part 11: Dust Collection Thoughts »

Ah—the bliss of more room! I shuffled off one old Craftsman table saw, and the individual who was picking it up made me an offer on the small Montgomery Wards one too—so I got rid of them both!

(The picture is deceptive—that saw on the right is sitting on the main table for a Shopsmith 500—the blade was about 6 inches in size.)

So now the space that stuff was taking up can be reallocated to some more shelving. Next up will be getting rid of the huge honkin’ console stereo and in it’s place I’ll build some shelving for air tools and perhaps a surround for the air compressor to quiet it a bit.

This is the next project on the must complete list. I started on this and need to get it completed and in place in the kitchen. It’s a trash can holder and in the bottom we’ll have room for bags/etc. It will be on wheels so you can simply position it where you need it.

Ah! Space, the final frontier. When you build the “noise reducing” surround for the compressor – how do you plan to provide it enough air to keep it cool but still dampen the noise. I’ve seen some where the vent the heat to the outside with either just an open vent or something like a bathroom ventilation system. Any thoughts?

Space is a nice thing to have in your garage. It gives you room for more new tools.
