« Part 3: New tools Part 4 of Basement series no next part

I think I can now call the basement a workshop. I got the pegboard up today and got the tablesaw halfway put together before it got dark. I will finish it tomorrow. Here are some pics.

Looks good. But it needs to be dirtier and have more stuff piled on the bench. Then it’s a real shop!

I bet you can’t wait to start making dust instead of “getting ready to make dust.”

One of my clients had that tablesaw in his basement shop and I got to use it during a remodel project. It is a great unit! I think it is a great saw for the money and I think that you will really like it. It is smooth running and the fence is nice. As I recall, this unit has the dust shroud around the blade and had really good dust collection on it.

Thanks for sharing the progress on the shop. It is always exciting to see one come together.
