Well here it is, my itty bitty shop, 220sqft of sawdust in the air, shaving on the floor, dovetail cutting fun. I am able to keep one project moving at a time, which is fine as I work alone and only need to keep one piece going. I do mostly hand work so don’t need a lot of machinery, so I don’t have a lot of machinery.. a table saw, Rigid TS3560 and a old Craftsman it says 9” band saw,, not sure how they measure these things but this one will handle a 2” wide blade which makes it great for resawing.. the only drawback is the clearance under the guide is only 7 1/2”.. its enough for now, working on a treadle powered band saw that will have 12” under guide clearance.. lots of planes, lots of hand saws and lots of chisels.. Has anyone else come across one of these Craftsman band saws set up for a 2” wide blade? first one I have ever seen like this. picked it up at an estate sale a couple years ago.. put a new 1hp motor on it and it just flat cuts..My shop is 20’ long by 11’ wide with an 8’ ceiling, it does have a storage loft which is nice.. the best part is the covered deck on the back which makes the perfect place to store my wood out of the weather.. would like to blow it out to 20 by 20 but have not done so as yet, soon I hope.. I figure the wife is about half way convinced its a good idea.. lol.. hope you like it..
