Just finished a mini lathe stand (Wood issue #182 March 2008). I love it so far. The Jet 1236 is a gift from a very good friend when he upgraded to a newer bigger better Lathe. I got the Jointer ( Powermatic Model 50 ) for a very reasonable price. To make the new machines fit my little shop went through a major refresh. I had to remove some stuff to get these tools in, but now I seem to have more room. Time to get busy on the end table for my mother-in-law.

Nice looking shop, I love your jointer. I would love to find me a Powermatic model 50 6’’ jointer.

Looks like a nice little setup. I have been trying to get my garage organized for years.

Looking good Bill, I’ve been working on mine, but I have a long way to go to catch up, lighting first.
