Thank you to everyone. Gralin Try this one on Youtube

https://youtu.be/faYYNS0IedI
For the shop layout I drew it out on sq/boxes, paper then I measure each tool and cut them out of the square paper and moved things around on the paper according to how I would used them and power 120/220 locations. until they fit. I used the squares as one sq equaled one foot.

I did try and use Grizzly’s shop layout tool online. Anything I have on casters got longer hoses. drop downs where decided by the size or adaptors for each piece of equipment.
hope this make sense and helps.

Did I see somewhere, you use sketchup?
I love it, use it all the time. Great for setting up shop.

I did use it to design the Brick Mail box. I used it to design and layout the two rooms I added to the house to take the plans to the county for permits. Change to my shop too. That is a great tool too

Hope that when you retire you’ve thought far enough ahead so that soup can be piped out there. After I retired, the first thing I did was to take my watch off. 31 years of Navy Plans of the Day was enough. Even if just putting around in there, time is of no consequence. I hope you get to enjoy your time out there…..Make wonderful sawdust and thanks for your service.

Thanks DonB, I do like to tinker out there even if its for a few minutes. Its a lot nicer since my wonderful neighbor gave me a Vent free Gas fire place to install. When i left the marines my neighbor was retired Navy made me a clock with all the numbers on the bottom as if they fell off the clock. He took it apart, flipped the face over, bought some sticker numbers.
