« Part 14: Air Compressor Installed and Plumbed Part 15 of First Project With the New Powermatic Table Saw series Part 16: Added to my shop area before moving on »

Having, for all intents and purposes, finished the compressor build I’ll start on the planer/jointer installation. It’s been in the general area of its siting but I just haven’t quite figured out the final orientation. Right now I have it kinda parallel with the axis of the garage door although set back about 15 feet. After considering this for the weeks it took me to install the compressor I believe I got it wrong. Instead, I’ll orient it at 90 deg from its current placement. I have all the wiring completed so it’s a matter of making up the final connection with the machine.

I can make the table without a bandsaw as Allan did the work without one. However, sizing things so the precision is inherent in the material required a jointer. After all was said and done, a 12” planer/jointer combination seemed the best long term acquisition. I might write reviews of the table saw, compressor, and planer/jointer after I build the table. I guess it just depends how cogent I am during its building and how reliable I believe my memory is at the time of completion. I cannot believe the amount of time I spend looking for something after putting it put down a few minutes before needing it again. I shudder to think of the aggregate amount of effort and time spent on this totally aggravating behavior.

Anyway, I’ll probably begin this install tomorrow.
