I forgot to mention that I do have extinguishers at both ends of the shop. The only thing is that I need to be in the shop to know if/when to use them. After reading some time back, about the guy who sparked a fire in his TS from unknowingly hitting a nail that smoldered but did not take off until he had left the shop, I also altered some of my own “best practices” in that I will empty the TS, jointer, DC, etc. at the end of each session in the shop if those tools are used. Sometimes I forget, but really, really trying to keep up on that self-pledge toward fire safety in the shop.

BTW, to run a telephone line or CAT5 between the house and stand alone garage/shop would put me out of compliance with how I currently have the garage wired and grounded.
