My shop is our two car garage, occasionally a car can get in there but not often. My pictures are not all from one shoot, because I have to get each area whenever it’s not too cluttered. My work is mostly home maintenance and repair. My wife and I have built one house and renovated another and are currently renovating the one we live in .
As you can see my tools are mostly OWWM and that’s kind of a hobby all by itself. First up is my table saw island which is a 1946 Tannewitz model U , a 1959 Delta Unisaw and a 1957 Delta HD Shaper. Next it’s shown with some nice accessories that I’ve added recently. Then you will see My Crescent P-18 planer. I’ll add some more as time allows. Thanks for looking.

Thanks Pottz! I got hooked on the old stuff several years ago. I have users, like what I’ve shown and a few more, restorations waiting to happen, and a lot of spares that seem to just find me :) .The goal now is to make more machines and space usable.

Thanks Mike, I’ve had that planer for years and only recently put in in service. It really is nice to use. It may need to grow some wheels as it’s kind of in the way and way to much to just shove around.

Bob,
Awesome old tools. you can’t beat cast iron that is older than your own skin. I’m fortunate enough to have some old Delta tools in my shop and they are by far my favorites.
BTW, I was born in Parkersburg and our first house was in a little neighborhood called Washington Gardens. I was very young when we moved to Atlanta and I consider myself a native Atlantan but I still have some vague memories from W. Va.
Make more saw dust!
Kind regards,
Tim
