I’m just beginning to get things together. I recently received a Jet 1236 lathe for the holidays; soon after I purchased a Jet Contractor table saw with table extension. Due to a rodent problem I had to take all my tools out of their storage location (I’m not sure that mouse piss is a very good lubricant) and decided that now is a good time to start adding to my storage options. Rather than drawers I’m going to add some peg board and a bit more shelving.
My workshop is in my garage which is disconnected from the house. There is no heat to the garage, though it is insulated. Right now I’m using a kerosene heater since the space heaters I was using before draw too much power to use them along side my power tools. Hopefully by next winter I will have a better heating solution setup. Lighting is still a major issue for me. I have four 8ft. fluorescent bulbs running along the ceiling that would be great if the garage were kept at a decent temperature. As it stands they tend to be a bit dim when the garage is cold.
