I am new here and relatively new to woodworking in a serious manner. I have worked in others shops and I am now setting up my own shop.
My first purchases are a grizzly 6091 and 548zp collector. First project will be a chip collector for the DC.
Looking forward to trying many of your projects and picking your brains.

Welcome aboard, Lockjaw! You should find this site a lot of fun. I for one will not be able to talk power tools as I am 100% unplugged, but others on here should be able to keep you out of trouble! Again, welcome to LJs.

Thanks for the welcomes…
I have a shop space but struggling to decide what space to use. I have a 21×42 lower that is cutup by rooms and posts and I have an upstairs loft that is 24×44 7 foot ceilings wide open 2×12 floor joists at 12” OC so no issue with weight rewiring which ever space I decide to use. loft would have barn type door to enable material movement with fork lift. If I use the loft I would put dust collector and piping downstairs. Loft could be acceptable as I plan on this being hobby type only…..famous last words…
Then I could keep lower for vehicles etc…de3cisions before winter…
