Currently I have about a 25’ x 25’ portion of my basement as my shop. The pictures don’t do the size justice. It’s really not as crowed as it looks. The only tools that stay in place is my lathe, band saw and the combo table saw/joiner.The TS is Delta/Milwalkee circa 1950 I think and it weighs a ton. The rest either slide or are on microwave carts. I just put up the jet air filter. That really made a difference. So far dust collection is a couple of shop vacs. A real DC is on the wish list.

I’m hoping to put up a pole barn in the back yard for my shop. Lord knows I have enough room for one. I would mean less grass to cut.

How about posting some pictures of your shop when you get the chance? It sounds interesting.

Rich, you have a nice shop space in which to work. It looks like you have plenty of room to move around in there and could probably generate some more if you got rid of the “non-essentials” in there. My shop tends to have some of these as well. But at least I did not see any lawn equipment in there. My wife has this bad habit of trying to move things, that she no longer wants but can’t seem to get herself to get rid of, out of the house to store in my shop since she feels that “I have room to store them in my shop”. I really like the table saw/planer that is a nice tool and, being made in the 50’s, I am sure it is a chore to move around. They just don’t make them like this anymore. By the way it is nice to see some sawdust in there. I had rather see a shop with some dust in it as opposed to a pristine one that looks like it is not being used.

Thanks for the pictures. I really enjoyed visiting with you.

Hey, dhg, great shop; you have all kinds of room in that shop. With your equipment I guess you could do just about anything.
