Tappahannock, VA 22560
United States

Currently working in the driveway, a huge pain, but smelling that fresh cut wood makes it worth while! Apartment living in the big city doesn’t really allow for a workshop. Thankfully, my parents let me store my stuff in one of their garage bays. Hopefully, I’ll be able to setup shop somewhere soon!

Alright Alright. I posted some pictures. Don’t really have a shop set up yet, but I’m slowly putting stuff together. At least I can still work in the driveway.

welcome. That’s pretty heavy equipment for a portable shop. Good luck on the shop search.

Thanks! Yea, it’s some pretty heavy stuff. I picked that table saw up at an auction. Sadly, the previous owner couldn’t afford to keep operating under the current economic conditions. His shop and equipment was just absolutely pristine. You could tell he took care of his tools, everyone was just jaw dropped on how well the stuff was kept. It’s so good it didn’t even look like it had ever been turned on. I got an unbelievable deal on the saw for the condition, so good that I felt I couldn’t turn the opportunity down. I’ve seen a lot worse condition go for a lot more. Although, its still looking for a more permanent home/shop, it sits in a climate controlled garage.

BullVictory, you have put together a pretty nice collection of tools and have a nice start on your shop. Having to do your woodworking outside can be a challenge, especially with the weather but we all do what we must to get our woodworking fix.

Living in the city makes it tough to work, not much space and neighbors don’t tolerate noise.

Perhaps this is an opportunity to to get a workbench and some nice traditional hand tools – not a bad alternative.

That table saw of yours looks very familiar Mr. BullVictory.

I know Powermatic made more than one PM66. But I’d know THAT PM66 (because of the base and custom extension table) anywhere.

You being from VA and saying you picked it up at an auction, I’m positive you’re the one that outbid me on it. At the Unicorn Woodworks auction in Louisa last November right? Came with the 3½ HP PC router and lift also?

Congrats again on that beautiful tablesaw. I hope she’s treating you just fine.

And welcome to LJ’s!
