I have a small woodworking shop located in the Galena hill country, close to Elizabeth, Illinois. I have forty years of woodworking experience and have learned from every one of my mistakes.
Woodwizard is kind of like my alter-ego. He plagues my work with mistakes, rusts my tools, injures me when I'm in a hurry, and causes all kinds of frusteration when I'm trying to get something cool done. But what are you gonna do? I guess I'll just hit him in the head with a hammer, then take a couple of aspirins.
I have a wonderful wife, "Barb" and two great kids, a boy and a girl. Emily and Aaron. A dog, Nikki.
My major shop-tool, is a Legacy Ornamental Mill, model 1800. It's a router-based work center that can turn up to 11 inch diameter columns(8 feet long). Right and left hand twists and adjustible taper. I've had the machine for about three years now and have created numerous attachments for it. It's a complicated machine and I've learned a-lot over three years of ownsership.
So if your contemplating adding this piece of machinary to your shop, I may be able to share my experience with you.
