My shop is relatively small… 16×24 and is detached some 200ft from the house. I use the 2 car garage that’s attached to the house as a lumber storage and assembly/finishing area.
The detached shop is home to the following equipment
Craftsman zipcode cabinet saw (very happy with it too)
Dewalt 735 planer…. great quality of finished product but hard on knives… on a roll around stand
Grizzly 6 1/4” jointer on roll around stand
Rockwell 6” jointer on roll around stand (very old machine that still works well and is used for “rough” jointing of sawn lumber… really don’t need it, aught to sell it but I’ve been too lazy to mess with it.
Custom built router table/cabinet with Roessler router lift and jessem fence
Rigid 14” bandsaw on roll around stand (cuts great, easy to adjust but vibrates a little… difficult to change cutting speeds but it’s all I have and does the job)
2 big drawers full of routers…. I keep some of them set up with dado and round over bits..
Grizzly scroll saw, nice machine but I rarely use it.
Steel City dust collector…. on my second one as the first was not up to par. Does the job as long as you use it as it was designed, one tool at a time
Craftsman mortising machine (same clone as pretty much everyone else sells got it on sale doing craftsman club days..) works fine but the Steel city unit has more features for only a couple bucks more…. didn’t realize it until I’d already bought the sears unit.
Roll around clamp/stock cart….. made this too big, takes up too much space but I’m stuck with it and it’s full of junk so it stays.
two work benches, both attached to the wall, serve their purpose but I need to build something better real soon.
5 or 6 grinders/buffers/sharpeners
5 or 6 sanders.
Delta drill press (bench model) this thing gets used a lot…. built many jigs and fixtures for it including a nice table.
and of course a few hundred pounds of hand tools and layout tools….
Geez if my wife ever went through all of this stuff she’d likely stroke out… only the lord could possibly know how much money has been spent on this stuff over the years and he isn’t interested so I try not to think about it.
IF I ever get it cleaned up enough to take a picture that’s not embarassing I’ll do so. But as it gets worked in everyday it pretty much stays in a “mess” compared to the pristine shops I see guys posting pictures of..
