Because my workshop is in my garage and space is at a premium, I have had to make use of available space for storing some of my power tools. In this photo, You can see my compound mitre saw sitting high on a shelf near the ceiling, and my router table hangs from that shelf by two sturdy chains. It is out of the way, giving me as much floor space as possible in my confined workshop.

Hi flippedcracker. I use my aluminum step ladder to get them down and put them back up. I’ve done it many times and no accidents yet. You just have to be aware of what you’re doing and make sure which steps you’re on when coming down with one of the tools. In the workshop, it’s always safety first.

great on the space saving – but seeing that picture and reading you use a ladder to get those up and down does not add up to your sentence “in the workshop it’s always safety first”.

to me this looks very unsafe. having to use “no accidents YES” is not a good sign.

safety first. shop space later
