My shop is only 14 X 21 and is fairly small but mighty! In order to use all my equipment most everything had to be put on wheels. The table saw, miter saw and jointer are used the most so are more accessible than the others. The spindle/belt sander and drum sander are put on platforms and I use a small sizzlor lift table to move them out when needed. My table saw is a Powermatic 2000 with a 3hp motor and a 50” rip. The bandsaw is a 14” Jet that can re-saw boards up to 12”. The peg boards are for my hand tools when I get around to hanging them up. The catch table/assembly table and storage unit has 5 drawers, 4 doors and stores my power hand tools, hand screw clamps, fasteners, hardware and mics. The Jet 12” planer/jointer can be used for jointing where she sets and can be pulled out for planing. The drill press is a Jet 17” with laser and built in light. My miter saw is a Makita 12” slider and it is the best miter saw I ever owned. The two sanders is a Ridgid oscillating spindle/belt sander and a Jet 16-32 drum sander. The Jet 1 1/2hp shaper comes with a 1/2” spindle, 3/4” spindle, 1/4” collet and 1/2” collet for router bits. The mortiser is a Powematic bench top and I used the base from the 16-32 drum sander to put it on for now. I need to build a storage cabinet under the table saw and a base for the mortiser to sit on. My dust collection unit and duct work came from Penn State Industries. I feel this is a must to have in my shop and would not be with out it. In 1983 I shot the second legal elk in modern North Dakota history (ND2ELK). My daughter named him Elmer. He field dressed 690 lbs, 6 X 6, with a 52” spread. Thanks for looking!
