Nicely done. Thanks for the post – I also have a small space and this gives some great ideas on layout/flow.

You have a LOT packed into a little space. Good work!

FWIW, it looks like you have the older 30 micron bag fitted HF DC. You might want to upgrade that to 1 micron filtration or better. Stick a Thien baffle in the inlet ring and call it good. Cartridge filters are preferable, but bags work if you are on a budget. Highland Hardware sells the 1 micron bags…

Thank every one, and about the dust collector, I plan on building a covered area behind the shop to put it outside, so any dust that does escape, wont be inside the shop.

Hey drfixit: One really nice thing about a small shop and workspace—- you don’t have to walk very far to get to the tools!!! But the room is nice, if you have it. Sometimes I think my shop is TOO big after walking from one end to the other—wears me out!! Anyway- great layout. I always thought there were pros and cons to shops. Work safe!
