Scott, how about posting some pictures of your shop when you get a chance. Tours of other shops are always an interesting post.

By the way let me welcome you to LJs as well.

Get some help with the filter. I have a PM1200 which is almost identical to your Jet and tried to hang it by myself. But it just can’t be done. I even, for a moment, thought about enlisting my wife but decided that would not work. My sons finally were able to make it over about a week later and I let them hang it while I supervised. This is definitely a two person job.

Ok, the wife and I hung the Jet filter 3 weekends ago (first chance ive had to post since then). It went very well. The system comes with eye bolts that you install onto the unit. So after installing those I installed some eye screws in the ceiling and hung the unit using carabiners; this worked great. I have a 8 foot A-frame ladder that was perfect for resting the unit on the top step whle connecting the carabiners to the eye bolts.

The unit is much quieter than I expected it to be. Even on high you dont have to raise your voice to talk or turn the radio up. It comes with a remote that has on-off, timer and speed controls. The timer will allow the unit to shut off after 2, 4 or 8 hours. It has 3 speeds.

So far i give it 5 stars especially for how quiet it is! I will take some decibel readings later and post the results.

My Shop Tour:

My shop is in the 1 car slot of our 3 car garage. That pretty much says it all… most of my stuff is small, portable, on wheels, or stored under a bench, etc, etc…. I love everything I have and couldnt be happier with my shop.

Not a great pic but this is it.

Left side: Dust Collector, Rikon Drill Press, Work Bench, Tool Chests.

Right Side: Shelves, Steelex 14’’ Bandsaw, Table Saw, Staining table. Chop saw and Disk/Belt sander under table

Work Bench

Closer view of staining table and stuff stored under it.

This is a Pattern makers vise. I love this thing! it is beefy and the heads swivel to holds odd shape projects. Very usfull. The wood “jaws” have a rubber coating that really grabs your work and keeps it from slipping.

Rikon 34’’ Radial Floor Drill Press The head tilts 45 degree Right; 90 degee Left

SteelEx 14’’ Bandsaw.

Thats pretty much it folks; hope you enjoyed it.

Scott, you have put together a pretty nice looking shop. It looks like you have it organized well and putting your power tools on wheels is the way to go for those of us with smaller shops. You have a pretty interesting bench in your shop. This design helps with minimizing the space that it uses and adding the filing cabinets gives you quite a bit of much needed storage.

Thanks for the tour. I enjoyed visiting your shop.
