So, I have been working for years out of my garage and whenever I want to do something “real” I run into the problem I don’t have anything “set up”. Nothing has a place. There is no workflow.
During my latest project (I’m building a view camera and a pinhole camera) I became so frustrate I stopped and decided to take over our small garage bay that was serving as our shed. I had it with working without organization and without dust collection.
So, I went to the basement and took some measurements… and started drafting… Here’s what I have so far. I did not properly model the dust collector. I know I’m missing the blower, but you get the idea.
You can see the garage shop in 3d and fly around it here: http://a360.co/1LoEKis
Here’s the 2D version: http://a360.co/1UdOGxY
The dust collector I’m considering is the HF 2hp model. Trying to decide if I should upgrade to 6” duct or not… looking for resources to help this decision.
I’m interested in what people think of the layout and how the work would flow. Note all of the small tools (bandsaw, etc.) will be on mobile base stands.
-- I do this for fun.
