It empties out side into a trailer with a truck cap on it so it is enclosed.It can handle the 20 inch grizzly planer , 6 inch grizzly jointer, and the radial arm at same time.

That is a WORKING shop! I ‘ve been using our 2-car garage for my shop and it is crammed so full, I have to move some equipment out on to the drave way so I can work – weather permitting, that is ! ! ! May I ask, what do you make mostly in your shop?

It is mostly a hobby shop where we build things for us. Once in a while manage to do small things for a job.
This is the first two years my two car garage has had room for a car!

I love the look of your shop. Looks like it has been used for decades (that’s a good thing). Thanks for sharing.
