Work in progress after the past 10+ years. Its a 18×12’ section of an old barn I refurbished on my property.
Sawstop Tablesaw
Grizzly 6” joner and 14” bandsaw
Delta 12” saw and drill press
Incra router table
Powermatic mortiser

All the big machines are on wheels to allow me to move them around as needed for more space. Thanks for looking.

I dunno Kevin. That Sawstop looks a bit too big for your shop space. Tell you what. I will trade you my Ryobi BT3100 for your Sawstop to help you because, well that’s just the kind of guy I am!

Okay all kidding aside though, very nice setup there. Good tool selection, and excellent flexibility.

I see you picked a similar setup in regard to miter saw / mortiser alignment to mine… Hopefully you are getting the same results I am from the setup. Plenty of stock support, neither tool interferes with the other…

Have fun and be safe!
