Blackpool, FY4
Great Britain

The workshop is in our detached garage (big enough for one medium-sized British car). Its roof is a bit leaky but I can generally keep most moisture off the tools, mainly by keeping stuff in sealed tool boxes. The band saw has to be wheeled up and down a bit so that I can get to the bench or the bench sander. There is no more room as our bicycles are also stored in there and my turbo-trainer is set up, out of site behind the band saw. It’s not perfect but a lot better than many people have got and I manage to make some nice things.

Yes, it works well for the projects that I select. I hope that I’m never required to make a double wardrobe. The insulation that I fitted to the roof makes it marginally cosier and stops condensation water dripping off onto stuff when it freezes.

Finally, someone that’s not afraid to lay their planes on the side. Nice little shop, Stanley.

Any shop space is a nice place in my book Stanley. Nice bandsaw, except it is too big for your shop. I think you should send over to my shop where it won’t be quite as cramped. ;.)

Thanks for the comments.

I didn’t realise that people didn’t lay planes on their sides; Dad always said that laying them on their soles blunted the iron.

The saw is too big. It’s a good saw and the wheels mean that it can be shuffled around relatively easily. My wife decided that she was going to buy this for me, one of her better impulse purchaes.

Wow. You wife is one thoughtful woman. I gave mine a list of tools for Christmas but the Sawstop wasn’t beneath the tree on Christmas morning. I guess Santa’s lift gate was out of operation.
