no previous part Part 1 of basement work shop series no next part

Well , after a few weeks I’m just about done building my basement workshop. I still have some odds and ends to do. I did start scrolling and trying out the equipment to make sure I didn’t have to adjust something. So far, everything seems to be going well.

The dust collection system is working great! The only thing I need to do for that is to run a dedicated line to it. It doesn’t blow breakers, but you can tell it’s straining the line when it goes on.

The bandsaw/ sander unit is working. I do have to add a dust port to the bandsaw.

The drill is the farthest tool away from the dust collector (14 ft or so), but the suction is great. When I drill, all the debris go into the collector .

Looking good! But I caution you with making statements like “just about done”!! In my experience, the shop is never done….So I say – you’re off to a great start…........

Looks good. Love to see more pictures of the dust collection on the scroll saw. I am just starting to organize a shop and looks like you have some great ideas to incorparate into my shop.
