This is a shop update. Some new workshop pictures and new descriptions. Hello- This is my third garage shop and is getting to be just right for me to have fun in. As I do not make a lot of large projects any more and have excellent dust and chip control it is usually pretty clean. There is a window and a side door w/glass to let in a lot of daylight. This is a large garage and by moving one work table can park car & truck inside and still have access to all tools. I have looked at some really awsome workshops on here. Mine is not real expensive but fits my needs. I do store lumber in a nice shed in the back yard. Questions and suggestions are welcome. Started making segmented bowls a few months ago. Yes I am hooked. Other than that several things have changed or been improved.Thanks for looking.
1-Rikon lathe replaced with a Nova 1624-44. What a difference!! ShopFox 12” resaw bandsaw replaced older Jet. Same old Delta drill press.
2-Paint cab made new to hang on the wall gained floor space. Gave the 4”X36” Delta sander to our Church shop. Replaced with and old Craftsman 6”X 48” which works really well and very quietly. Found this old Craftsman 12” bandsaw, refurbished it and added a Carter single roller guide. It effectively does all my small curved cutting. Moved the older Canadian made DW788 scroll saw to this bench mount. Still have small 1” Delta sander. Delta bench grinder w/home made Captain Eddie tool sharpener sets under the misc. clamp racks which are still in place. A shop vac and air compressor are under the counter in this area. The 1966 model Dewalt Power Shop only has to do cross cuts now.
3—Grizz jointer parking location moved to beside the V-drum sander and cabinet which serves as the out feed for the ShopFox cabinet saw.
4—The heat and AC are the same. The Dewalt planer sets beside the closet door where the Penn State cyclone resides. The battery charging station is on the wall behind the planer.
5—Central located is the ShopFox saw with router table wing. Older M12V router with dust box below. Above is router bit rack and extra routers.
6—Air nailers and staplers on the end of wall workbench/storage cabinet. Across from this unit is a lower rolling work bench with jigs and stuff in it. This bench rolls to in front of the saw assembly therefore allowing room to pull in another vehicle.
There is a small supply of rough lumber and sheet goods in the other rear corner. As you all know there are many smaller useful and not so useful things stuffed into every nook and crannie . Thanks for looking.
-- I love the smell of sawdust in the morning. Vernon
