Huntsville, AR 72740
United States

I am really just getting started back into wookworking. We were always building something when I was at home and my brother and dad have both been cabinet builders. This is the first shop that is completely mine. Have a look and give me some ideas if you have any that will help… What we have so far: Two bandsaws, Miter saw, table saw, planner, joiner, double drum sander, router table, great work benches, belt and disc sander, oscilatiing drum sander, drill press, down draft sanding table, dust collection (a work in progress), and my version of a “multi-router”. Most of the tools including a great portion of the hand tools we gifts from my wife and family. Got to love her…..

Nice shop. Is that a Grizzly double drum sander? If so how do you like it and what is the model number? I’m thinking of going to the grizzly tent sale again this year and picking up a sander of that type and could use your input.

The Grizzly G1079R is my double drum sander and I have had good luck with it. Forget what the manual tells you as to the length of the sanding rolls and measure the ones that come on it. Also the paper that comes from the factory on the drums in not the best. I replaced it right away since it streached and came off. I have had others to say it is best to put the velcro on the drums but I have not yet. I did buy their replacement sand paper rolls and have had good luck with them. I went to the tent sale last year and I am not sure it was of any value. Too many people and not that many good deals. If you don’t mind working over some of the machines you can save a few bucks.

Hi Woodnguns,

I am just now getting around to reviewing your shop post. You have a wonderful shop. I am envious about the head room you have in there. Wow. That is wonderful. You have a nice set of tools as well.

Thanks for the post.
