Well, we had a little organizing fest this past weekend, so I managed to get all the shop equipment laid out in my little corner of the barn that I will eventually frame in to make that corner my new shop.

Also spent some time Wednesday and most of the day Thursday assembling and adjusting my new table saw.

Things are looking up.

Nice.
I’ve been considering getting rid of my RAS for a tablesaw. That Grizz will be on my short list if it ever happens.

I sensed a disturbance in the Shopsmith force. My SS shuddered a little. Nice looking shop though.

Forgive my ignorance Joe, but what is a RAS?

Not to worry Jack, the SS is not going anywhere. I still need it for everything else it does so well, IE drill press, lathe, horizontal boring, disk sanding. I just needed a table saw with a bigger table and a more accurate arbor. ( I’ve got .020 runout on the SS saw, so it makes a lot of the precision cuts very difficult. It would have cost me about $300.00 all totaled to get the runout fixed with Skip’s double bearing retrofit, and I would still have been dealing with the small table, so the G0771 for $675.00 was pretty much a no-brainer.

Radial Arm Saw, Jerry. I know, it seems like we often throw out all these acronyms and just ASSUME that everyone knows what we’re talking about. :-)

That is looking like a NICE shop! It looks spacious and very bright. That Grizz is the newest hybrid? I have the older hybrid and have really enjoyed it. Best wishes my friend.

It’s going to be great I think. I’m still thinking things through…it’s not often you get the opportunity to build a shop from the ground up, so I’m trying to think ahead and foresee present and future needs. So far I’m thinking electrical outlets about every 6 feet along the walls ( I was going to put them in the floor, but building a floor is beginning to look like too much ), compressed air line running the perimeter of the shop with regular outlets / manifolds as well. Of course the dust collection system will get installed first, but this time, the DC motor and filter itself is going to be outside the shop. I’m considering a french cleat system for the walls so I can add storage and cabinets as needed. That’s all I got so far, and so far, it’s all in my head :-)

Yes, that is the latest entry level hybrid from Grizzly, it appears to be pretty well made, although I’ve not gone through the fine tuning part of the setup yet. In fact, I have not turned it on yet. Thanks for looking in Andy.

ANY AND ALL SUGGESTIONS WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!

Very nice Jerry. Looks like a fabulous space!

Great looking saw too, especially like the mobile base.

I have a 99’ Grizzly 3 hp and I love it!

Looking very good. You have a nice space just waiting for you to fix it to your desires.

I still have my Shopsmith and use it for all kinds of things. It is amazing as a powerful variable speed motor to attach all kinds of things to. Mine is starting to make some small noises and thinking about getting the head rebuilt but have to save up a few $$$$.
