My shop is a 24×24 2 car garage (at least it was) I’m still in the process of cleaning out useless clutter via numerous goodwill trips and fires. However its coming along ok so far, I’ve got some retrofit style dust collection an upgraded benchtop saw that performs really well. other equipment is as follows:
1 12 inch craftsman bandsaw
2 Skil 4402 routertable on a heavy stand
3 Buttload of routerbits
4 Craftsman 10’’ compound mitre saw
plus your usual stuff antique jack plane, chisels, a good few clamps kreg jig bench grinder so on and so on. Insulating over the summer and putting some heat out there so i can make the bucks all winter long!

Woodsmith, how about posting some pictures of your shop when you get the chance? Tours of other shops are always an enjoyable post to see.

ok, so here’s the deal, lol, The dust collector under the table saw is powered by a shopvac that was previously hidden in the cabinets under the miter saw station,(former outfeed for TS) so i moved around and made a simple outfeed for the TS and Router table to share. So if you were gonna ask how the cardboard drum thingy was run, that’s it. Still movin’ and cleanin’ as i get a little reprieve from orders and so on. Thanks for looking!

I’m not sure I understand the Table Saw setup. Is that a Skil bench top saw in some kind of accessory frame with an extension wing? Does it extend your fence capacity?

dude, that table saw setup is as good as a benchtop gets i think. its a skil 3304 dropped into a skil 80092 table saw stand, it increases rip capacity to 25 inches, the fence is a 26 inch t-square style that looks like a miniature biesmyer or something you can grab on on ebay for about 80 bucks shipped and it will fit most popular bench saws. i’m a huge fan. now my little saw will hold me over for far loner than i expected!

Woodsmith, this looks like a pretty nice shop to me. It appears to have plenty of room in there and it looks like you have a nice collection of tools.

Looks like a great place to build stuff.
I looked at your location on the map and know exactly where you are. Used to live just south of there at Lowell.
