Rural, IL
United States

I have a good section of the basement for my shop area. I’ve been lucky enough to be able to acquire a pretty good set-up of tools in not too long of a time. Still holding out for a few things, but running out of room! Some of the things in my shop:

Grizzly G0575 10” table saw

Jet 16 1/2” drill press

Ridgid 13” planer (the model with the three knife cutter head)

Router table w/ Hitachi TR-12 plunge router mounted in it

Grizzly 1028Z 1 1/2 hp dust collector

Porter Cable 6 gal. pancake air compressor with nailers/staplers

I really need to get a jointer but I’m running out of room. I’d also like to try out turning sometime, but that is a whole ‘nother ball park.

I will have to echo Lew’s comment about the pictures. Your shop sounds interesting. It would be nice to see a visual tour of it.

Zac, you have a well organized shop in which to work and you have a nice set of tools to play with as well.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.
