Thanks guys


Thanks for the links i’ll poke around to see what I can find.


The TS is pushed all the way up against the wall on the right side. The thought is that this essentially defines my rip capacity on that side since the rails are only so long, the fence can only move over that far anyway. Very similar to the logic of having the side of the band saw with the post side against the wall, I can’t cut anything that sticks out past the post anyway. If I do panel ripping I would probably put it on the workbench, which now would have plenty of space around it for additional support, and break it down with a circular saw.


The bandsaw is on wheel and could be moved out for longer rips. if needed. I think I’ve sold myself on Lee’s suggestion that the Drill Press needs more space around it. I think I will move it to the wall where I have the planer shown and move the OSS and Disc Belt Sanders in that corner. Again, both are on wheels so if I need to move them out, that should not be a big issue. The final resting spot for the planer may be a matter of trial and error. I’d like to leave it out and connected to the DC but I might need to get over that.

Thanks again for looking
