Chris, how about posting some pictures of your shop when you get the chance? Tours of other shops are always welcome.

Chrlis, I would not do this for everyone but Im here to help. If youll send me that drill press, lathe and the hegner it would free up some room for you. You can contact me for shipping address.

Chris, this is a real treat to be able to take a tour of your shop. It is clean, well organized and you have some cool tools to play with. Every time I see a shop with the PM lathe I am reminded of an opportunity I let get by a few years back. I saw a classified for a 1 year old 3520 with a complete set of Sorby turning tools that was priced at $1800. I debated on it over the weekend and by the time I called about the lathe on Monday it was already sold. When I get the opportunity to add a lathe to my shop this will probably be the model that I go for.

Thanks for the pictures. It was fun to see your shop.

Thank you Scott. I bought the lathe at Woodcraft. They use a forklift and put it my truck. A friend of mind and i dismantled it in the truck and took it down the stairs. Heavy little sucker. Such a big difference from the Jet Mini i had.

very nice shop that is a woodpecker router table is that fence from them too? I never seen one like that. I like the fact that it has a dust collection out the back.

Thanks Ike, The fence is a Incra. It’s a older one from Woodpecker. I got it a while ago at a woodworking show up in Denver. It was towards the end of the show and they gave me a good deal on it. It was their Demo floor model. Woodpeckers still still packages that include the Top, Stand, Fence. and Router lift. You only supply the router. Haven’t been on their site in a while. not sure what the prices are now.

Man, you are making me look bad…what a nice clean shop!
I’d like to have you show me the Incra fence usage, as I’ve been thinking of
getting one myself. Give me a holler some time, when you have a few minutes
to show me how it works?
Thanks,
