« Part 2: big day tomorrow Part 3 of setting up the new shop series Part 4: along with the shop i am moving my office »

We worked here for two days, i changed the places for several items we dismantled the router table and salvaged a ton of parts off it. I was so tired on both days that i didn’t take any photos yet next is the planes workbench and sharpening station, as i have most of what i need to get it ready for use. there are still a few tools id like to store in a shed but i have too much cash tied up in planes and need to sell some off to build the shed its a never ending story. I have to get the shop done to have a better place to do my planes and all the sharpening and japanning the wife hates when i use her oven to bake on japanning most guys are using paint its cheaper and faster likely holds up as well. anyway i finished the out-feed bench its basic and its in the shop now ill get things in place the next couple of days i have my son again on Saturday so hopefully we can start on setting up dust collection hoses etc got to remember to get some grounding wire and some more blast gates and about 60 feet of tubing a few ys and ts i will need a few reducers for the saws that have 2.5 inch or smaller inlets. i put the following tools on the north wall band saw chop saw radial arm saw osculating spindle sander and in the corner the dust collector. on the east wall is the freezer my wife’s pride and joy and then the wood-rat and a hallow chisel mortiser. then my a Cabinet and my tool box some of my daughters things from her wedding 10 boxes staked then down the south wall is sheet goods storage and a Cabinet then some more storage in the partition between the garage doors on the west side there is my compressor my sanding table a small cabinet and a gap then my old workbench that i am going to replace with the 21st century bench in front of that bench is the 54a powermatic jointer and in front of the freezer is the lathe a jet 1236 its small but i am no turner. in front of the lathe is the table saw and then in front of that is the out-feed assembly bench i made using the kreg jointer its a cool setup i need a drill press as Dan tool ours when he left town to Oregon to make his wife happy. i have a bench top press i don’t like it much its really small i need a drill and want to jeep it under 5oo dollars. maybe ill start a thread on it or put it in the drill of your dreams thread. the router table and shaper will go in the second stall area and then some cleanup and i will be working in my new shop. hopefully with my sons help ill be able to get a couple of hours of work in a day as long as i keep the projects small enough to handle the weight. I need clamp storage and lumber storage i am thinking of a short term solution and a long term one too.until next time see ya later.
