Hi ShipWreck,

This is a nice shop. I could work here. There seems to be one thing missing however- sawdust!!! No good workshop should be without at least a token amount of sawdust.

By the way I like your “set of hand tools” in front of the water heater. These are shop essentials without a doubt.

Thanks for sharing.

Welcome Aboard. Looks like a good use of the space. The garage always has the advantage of extra room by opening that door. Wish my basement had that option sometimes..
Look forward to seeing the work that is done in there.

Great use of the space you have there and well organized to boot. How do you like your Grizzly band saw? R/Brian

I have a love hate relationship with the Grizzly BS. Wheel castings were a bit off from the factory. It has about 1/8 ” wobble as the blade comes through the guides. I have tried repositioning the tires, and have recently put a new set on. I have done everything imaginable to cure this….short of removing the wheels. So..I just let the guides take the slop out for me. The guide bearings still run cool… I gave up worrying about it.

Have your say...
