well i finally broke down and got a dust collector and at the right time too i also got about 700 feet of rough cut alder in for a kitchen job i started.so i decided to update the shop pics a lil and show the dc it’s a 3 horse and has more than enough power for the shop.tools include the flag ship of the shop my grizzley 10 inch cabinet saw model g0651 extreme series.this saw comes standared with a 3horse but i had it upgraded to a 5 horse 220v.a grizzley 1 1/2 hp shaper model g1035 nice lil peice of equipment but im thinking of upgradeing to the grizzley three spindle model.next is a rigid 6 1/8 jointer im not impressed with rigid hand tools but they do make some nice stationary tools this jointer holds up to any thing i through at it.i also have a rigid 13 in planer that also impressed me so far i have ran over a thousand feet ou hard and soft wood through it and it performes nicely.i have a dewalt hd 12 in double sliding compound miter saw and the porter cable 24 in omni jig for all my dove tail joints on the cabinet drawers.and the newest addition is the jet dust collector.the next big purchase is gona be the kreg pocket hole machine.im getting tired of doing it with a small jig and drill.

Randy, it looks like you have a nice shop space in which to work. You have plenty of room to move around in there between the tool stations and I would really enjoy having as much headroom as you do in your shop. I have 92” to the joists and it makes swinging long boards or sheet goods an adventure at times. You also have a nice set of tools to work with and they appear to be organized well. And, of course, it looks like your shop is well guarded. :) With this crew I am sure you feel safe working in there.

I love your taste in all that Ridgid equipment. I’m a bit of a fan myself. I see we have the same taste in Ausrtailan Cattle Dogs, (How did that Border Collie sneak in there?) Nice work place.

I’m getting pretty tired of doing the whole hand held pocket hole jig thing too. I’m thinking about getting a castle pocket machine though. I don’t know. It’s like 200 more than the Kreg.
