Some pictures of my rearranged shop. After my accident I changed everything around to make it easier to move from place to place since it is so hard to walk.

You will notice:

Wiring panel still not quite complete
All the wood blanks for turning around the wood-cart
Two 16/4 slabs of 10’ cherry ready for resawing and cutting
The mess on the table saw is a vacuum pump system 50% built for my Powermatic lathe
Some stuff that has creeped into my shop that doesn’t belong there!

Thanks for looking.

Hi Chip. I agree with Lew that some pictures of your shop would be a nice addition to your shop description.

I will add some pics after the first of the year. :) I messed up my shoulder and yesterday found out that I have 2 torn muscles, two torn tendons, a bone chip and an impinged joint that needs to be surgically repaired. I am waiting for a call from my doc, he wants it done asap so I don’t tear anything else. After that I’ll take some pics and post them!!

You have a really nice shop in which to work. This one definately was worth the wait to see. I really like the mats you have added in front of your tools. These help, I am sure, to prevent fatigue from working on the concrete floor. You have organized your shop well and you have some nice tools to play with.

Thanks for the post. I enjoyed visiting with you.

nice looking shop, you have some very nice machines. I use the same colored mats. they do help – kind of a pain to clean around though, but with the big dust collector maybe you do not have that problem :-).

Actually, the mats around the lathe are a pita to clean, but my old wet/dry vac does a pretty good job.

The mats are meant for kids play areas, but they work great on the cement floor, help my tired old feet and are pretty cheap at that big club with that guys name on it.

You’re like me, just can’t throw out any scrap wood. :) I was looking for that new lathe and had to wait all the way to the laaaaast picture to see it. What’s all the dust collection pipes connected to? I can kinda make out what looks like a cyclone back behind the bandsaw? All in all looks good Chip!

Thank you Jim, that means a LOT coming from you. Really! :)

Curt: you are right, throwing away those pieces of wood kills me! I mean, there goes a pen blank! There goes a piece of plywood that I could use for some kind of jig! A tool handle out of that one! Oh! A shim! LOLOLOL

It goes on and on, until there is just ‘too much’ little stuff and not enough big stuff. :)

Curt,
Yes, I have a Clearview cyclone 1800. It will suck the chrome off of a bumper!! I have 6” pvc run to every tool, then it goes down to 4” at the machine, as close to the machine as possible. I absolutely love the Clearview, I did a review of it a while back.
