Ok so here are some shots of my “workshop”. Actually I shouln’t call it workshop, is just a spot I have under a shed on my back yard. Nothing fancy like some others I had seen before (no offense, I do really love seeing all the different shops from you guys)

I start with my latest addition ( about 3 weeks ago) my TS ridgid R4511, I won’t get into much detail on this one since there’s a ton of information about it on the net, basically I just upgraded it to a 240V added a 25ft 12-2 cord (this way I don’t need to add another extension cord from the TS to the outlet and I can move my TS virtually anywhere on my yard. Also I added it an small storage box to the left side of the TS (right underneath the bevel hand wheel) I use this mainly to have all my ZCI's close be the TS, as well for my miter gauge with its adjustable fence, the rip fence also have a place in here as well for the push blocks, push sticks and featherboard.

On the third pic you can see my workbench. Again nothing fancy like many others, I’m not to worry about the final result since all I wanted it was a bench to have a place for all my upcoming projects (maybe a better bench, who knows)

The next image shows you the old mini TS I had before my R4511. People don’t waste your money on this kind of items, you will regret every single penny you expend on this kind of tools.

The 5th and 6th picture shows you my mitter saw on its mobile base with extended wings to allow up to 8ft cuts on it.

I will post more pictures of the rest of the “shop” I need to upload them somewhere else, (you know… 6 pictures max.. lol )

Alonso, I agree with Splinterman about the pictures. Visual tours of other shops are always a welcome post.

Nice shop, smart move converting the TS to 240, you won’t regret that, I guarantee it. I have to agree with you about the little portable table saws, you will regret every penny you spend on them, I had one (well still have but its under the bench now) before I purchased my Delta Hybrid that I also converted to 240. I have to ask, what are your views on the granite table top? I am planning on purchasing a jointer from Steel City in a little while and I am looking on a granite table top for that. Thanks for the pics of the shop.
