I left my 40×25 shop behind in Illinois 3 years ago, so now it’s a 2 car garage shop for me in a residential neighborhood. Oh, and it’s a rental.

Table Saw-Center of my shop, Craftsman pro on mobile base that I really like. She is for sale now, so I can upgrade to a Delta 36-725. Has a router table attachment for my Craftsman router.

Drill Press-1969 Craftsman cast iron beast. I have decided there really is no upgrading from this.

Shopsmith 10ER, circa 1951 with speed changer. My wife’s grandfathers, so gently and slowly bringing her back to life as a usable tool in my shop.

Ridged RS1000 RAS. Just purchased to replace a Craftsman with a digital readout I had to sell when we moved last. Waiting on a good negative hook blade to really start using her. I also have an inexpensive 10” Sliding Compound Miter Saw that I picked up used from a neighbor around the corner.

Air compressor. She will die, eventually. I bought her on sale 20 years ago. My first major tool purchase as a young married.

CNC router- almost done! Just need to build a cabinet for the parts and tune it up. It’s sitting on my dad’s 1960’s era steel desk for a base.

DeWalt planer- picked this up for almost nothing, and she looked brand new. Waiting to build a suitable bench for it. She’s covered in sawdust right now because, frankly, at times, I can be lazy.

Band Saw-missing in action. Actually had to sell my old Craftsman 12” for the move. Waiting to replace. Update-couldn’t wait any longer, so added a 1960-ish Craftsman 12” band saw with a cast iron table. It was my grandfathers, and has been sitting idle in my dad’s garage. It was the first tool I learned to use, and I have clear memories watching my granddaddy work wood on it. That’S, of course, why I hesitated to bring it into the shop-I won’t want it to leave.

Nice. I’m sure that Craftsman drill press has no equal. It will never die. The Shopsmith has a lot of flexibility, good luck with your shop.

Have your say...
