I finally got around to organizing my shop this week, although there is still tons to do. It’s a stand-alone, 23’ x 29’ two car garage that’s all mine because we have an attached garage for the wife’s car. Last year I replaced all the doors and windows and put in a ceiling with insulation above it, so the shop is well insulated. Just a few weeks back I put in a window air conditioner that has been a blessing during the hot weather we’re having. I’m currently looking at heating for the winter months and may go with infrared radiant heating, which heats up objects instead of the air.
With the exception of the two table saws, all the other equipment I inherited from my dad, including the 1956 Shopsmith, (which I’ll probably use just for the lathe). I’ll use these machines until I get a handle on actually building things then graduate to the quality machines…at least that’s the plan. For those interested, that’s a Ridgid R4512 TS, Craftsman 315.218290 contractor’s TS, Craftsman 15-1/2” drill press, and a Craftsman 12” bandsaw/sander.
Lots to do, so little time…
