Located in the suburbs of Philadelphia; Royersford, PA. I have a modest space about 18×12 in the basement. I make do with it and won’t complain as I Just re-oarganized a bit while isntalling new Dust colelction ducting. Almost done the temporary DC ducting (not grounded). 4” thin walled inexpensive PVC with 4” blastgates and 4” clear tubing to the following machines;
-Jet CTAS-10 Cabinet Saw run on 220V. Refurb almost complete. Was missing locking mechanism for blade height.
-Craftsman Router and Table. Attached to fence Rails on TS. POS cabinet underneath until I build a fresh router table.
-Penn State 1 HP Dust Collector. I realize that is not enough and it is on the list to replace.
-Milwaukee 12” Compounder Sliding Miter Saw. Bought when HD was clearanece them out. Could not be happier with it.
-Powermatic Bench top Mortise machine. Works great. Use this and router and haven’t which I like more.
-Craftsman Benchtop 10” DP. Definately needs replace. Allot of wobble and has seen better days.
-Delta 14” bandsaw. Love this especially with the Timberwolf blades.
-Jet Spindle sander Bougt it for a song for kid for his Pinewood Derbies.
-Craftsman 6” and 4X36 benchtop sander
-Jet JWL-1220 Midi Lathe with 3/4Hp. Newest addition and love it.
I have bought almost all of my tools used and am an admitted craigslist junkie. Hence why I have relatively low dollar in to the large power tools themselves. Roughly 2K by just buying what I find great deals on. Whether I need it or not. Hence why I am missing some key tools. The joiner and planer. I have managed around it with help from friends. But they are on my list. The Planer first, since I have been able to use the router in lieu of the jointer.
