My shop has changed quite a bit since June of ‘09. I still have the small basement shop and some machines in the barn and everything is on wheels to make the best use of my small space.
I have power tools from Atlas, Bosch,Craftsman,Delta DeWalt, Fein, Grizzly, Harbor Freight, ,Makita, Miller, Milwaukee, Rigid, Ryobi, Skil, Smithy, and Southbend. I’m not tied to any one brand.
Not show in the barn is an 8” HF mini lathe, a Miller stick welder and a set of acetylene torches.
I use all kinds of materials so I have to be careful to clean up a lot when working with wood so there are no steel or aluminum chips in the wood.
I use the Smithy mill for woodworking a lot. It saves on making tricky set ups and I can use all the router bits in it.
For big stuff, there is an overhead electric hoist in the barn too.
