Here are some new pics of the shop. I have added the new Rikon bandsaw and a Jet sander. I am starting to out grow my 2 car garage shop.But I do live at almost 8,000ft in the rocky mountains and my shop is heated so I can work year round no problem.

Hi Roper,

I will ditto Gary’s comments about the pictures. I find visual tours of other shops to be an interesting part of this community.
