A few new pics of my new (4 years) shop. It is approx 12×28 portable with a garage door at one end. Walled off 10 feet for yard storage. Porter Cable drill press and 14” band saw are the only “fixed” floor model machines. Dewalt table saw, Dewalt 13” planer and Hitachi compound mitre saw are all mobile to be pulled out to use. Router table. For dust containment I use a shop vac which I connect to whichever piece of equipment I am using. Not ideal but adequate for now. Workbench from last shop, just added a couple of vises. Most of my planes were bought at antique/ junk stores. Tuned them up and they work great.( Stanley 29, 5-1/4’, 4 and 9-1/2) .

Welcome to LJ’s. Looks like a good place to create and build.

Looks like you are off to a great start.

I do not think any woodworker has enough tools.

I see you have the same mortising machine as I, where do you get new bits and chisels?

I haven’t had it long enough to need replacements. I bought it, private party and it came with several in the box bits and chisels. Just checked the boxes and they have a Harbor Freight price tag on them. Probably not top quality but they do what I need.
