GARAGE UPDATE #1

Now that the new garage is done, we have been shuffling things around to get the garage stuff in the garage and out of the shop. So far I have about 25% of the shop done. Attached are a couple of pictures of the new wall and the a couple of the mess after construction.. This is were the old garage door was.

The dust collection system is up and running as is the air compressor. The wife was nice enough to let me put those two items in the garage. That move really cuts down the Db level. The doors in the back ground are for the two oldies I need to replace. As soon as the foot of snow melts.

Progress is slow never fast enough. I well post again as more progress is made.

Looks good ! I have to set up my shop also. I’ll put it on the projects log when I get more accomplished. I like your wide sander! ...I’ll have to add that tool to my wish list.
Keep up the good work!

Greetings sarge:

The shop is coming right along, and looks like it’s shaping up to be a nice work area. Surprizing how long it takes to get it “just the way tou want it”... but is it ever that way?.......NOT. A shop is always evolving, and it’ll never be done, completely. My wife says I change my shop around more than the furniture in the house gets moved around….lol…. she’s right.(ain’t they all?). So just keep on keeping on….. Oh…., and is that a Jet 22-44 Occilatting sander, or just the 22-44? I’m fixing to buy the 22-44. Tell me how you like it, and your thoughts on it….... Thanks…........ Rick.

Rick, I wish it was oscilating. I’m 90% in love with it. It is a pain to set up. If you do get the 22-44 be sure to get the extention wings. They are a must for a tool this size. Must of what you will put through it will be large and will need the support.
As for the wife I don’t know how I could get anything done without her. I’m sure you know what I mean.

Having the dust collection and air in another room is fantastic. I have my compressor in the basement. Wish I had an area for my dust collector so its not in my shop! Best wishes and have a blast in your shop.

Looks great Sarge. I am a bit envious of that sander. You will have a great shop when finished. Bob I agree it is nice to get rid of the noise from the compressor and vacuum by moving them out of the shop, but the vacuum exhaust does help heat the shop. I suppose it’s possible to get both benefits with a little tinkering. I still have to have hearing protection when I run my machines though.
