Not really a wood shop although the wood working tools are the biggest presence. It’s my half of a 28×32 two car garage plus whatever space I can poach from the wife’s half.
My tools are a conglomeration of mostly used stuff. A fairly unused Craftsman RAS that I inherited from my father-in-law. A vintage 1940s 4” Craftsman jointer that was my father’s. A garage sale Delta benchtop drill press. A small Delta 10” table saw that is hardly worth the $50 I gave the guy down the road who had the good sense to upgrade. A Craftsman router and Ryobi router table. Mishmash of drills, circular saws, clamps etc.
The jointer is being replaced (and passed down to a son-in-law) by a 6” Rockwell/Delta of about the same vintage that I earned by hauling it out of a friend’s basement. The knives are at the knife grinder as we speak. There is a 12” Craftsman band saw from the same basement that is awaiting the arrival of two new tires (it was missing one), a new blade, and a tune up.
There’s a 10” Grizzly table saw with a after-market precision fence and 52” rip width that I got in trade for some electrical work. I bought a used 15” Grizzly planer from an old woman cleaning out her husband’s barn for $250. I know there’s mixed reviews on Grizzly stuff but the TS is a major upgrades for me and the planer just seemed too good a deal to pass up. They’re both coming home this weekend when I commandeer the son-in-laws. The TS too awkward and the planer is too damn heavy to move by myself.
I know, I know … pictures! Give me a few days to make things half way presentable.
Six months later: okay, it’s obvious that ‘presentable’ is not going to happen to any laudable degree so here’s what you get.
