Not sure if this is the right forum – but …
I’m setting up my new shop and debating with myself on the best way to position the power tools… and I’m losing the debate.
I have a unisaw with 72” rails and a 6’ wide x 4’ deep outfeed table behind it, 2 sliding table shapers, a small spindle shaper, 8” jointer, 20” thickness planer and a radial arm saw that I’m trying to position in the smallest footprint to facilitate dust collection but I don’t want to crowd them together in an unusable manner.
I’m trying to stay off the walls because they have pegboard mounted for storage – so everything is in the ‘middle’ of the floor. The area that I’m trying to work with is about 12’x20’ or so. Dust collection, compressor, assembly area, etc. is outside this footprint.
Any ideas welcome!
