So after 6 weeks of 550 a week rent for fully equipped shop I decided I need my own shop,money is always tight so was kinda afraid that it’s not a good time yet but went and sign a lease anyway 1000, so far tools costed me , table saw 200, band saw 120, thickness planer 120 , dust collector 75, porter router plunge combo 150( table I made) , compressor 300 ,fan 100, chap saw I already had, plus all the small tools I had , still need to get drum sander 16/32 performax I found used one for 600, and build a spray booth below that big fan, but already have build my first kitchen ( working on doors now) so it feels good !! It’s a first shop and hopefully it will all work out and one day this will be the shop that started it all ;)! At least that’s the plan !

Good luck Ladislav. It sounds like things are working out so far. Can I ask the dimensions of your shop. It looks huge but of course you didn’t have your tools in place yet.

The first real shop is always good. Looks like you will have plenty of room to move around. You sure got some great deals on your tools. Good luck and I hope business starts rolling in right away.

Man that is so nice. Looks like you have space for an Office and the Bath Room is always nice to have , and your saving on the rent to be able to put into more tools so I would call it a Win Win deal. I love the area around the TS and the Assembly table looks like it is going to work just fine as well. Good Luck in the New Shop.

I remember my first shop. It was 1600 sq. feet. It will fill up quickly. That space will get smaller with tools, lumber, plywood and projects. You will end up working in a small area in the middle of the shop. Best of luck.

-- Have a great day.
