Now that the table saw is lowered, more toys need to be lowered to be useful in the shop. So now I’m trying to come to grips with the loss of the outfeed table and the need to relocate other tools for combinations of uses.
Today I lowered the shaper 5 inches and trimmed it to be 5/16” lower than the table saw and the same with the band saw. The idea is that I can have them close by for use or the be the outfeed table, What do you think?
Everything is on Shop Fox mobile bases the same as the table saw. And the shaper is a handy storage for my Osbourne miter.
By having them just a bit lower than the saw table, they can serve as an outfeed table with out having them too low.
I’ll add to this blog as I rework everything for better spacing, and reducing the need for any excess equipment I really don’t need. Speaking of unneeded equipment, I’m thinking about just getting rid of the compound miter saw and the mobile stand. It just doesn’t fix my shop. I don’t do enough cabinet work to warrant haveing it as the table saw will do any thing I need to cut with it.

edit…I also re placed to old shop photos to bring things up to date.
