My workshop is an in progress conversion of my 1.5 car garage. Space is limited as I have to share the space with what seems like an endless stream of “Stuff we don’t want in the house”. I have some tools that I have inherited and some that I have purchased. I currently have 2 table saws. The first is a Kobalt contractor saw from lowes. While it has worked out for some of my projects the aluminum top and flimsy stand concern me. My second saw is an inherited Delta Model 10 contractor saw. I will post the exact model number later. It has a cast iron top with some stamped wings and an old Jet Lock fence. With both these saws the fence is my biggest gripe. I’d like to purchase a newer fence but I don’t know if it’s worth upgrading either of these two saws. I have a couple of junky router tables and a Grizzly 12.5” planer. My drill press is a Delta 17-900 and I have a bench top belt/disc sander and an craftsman oscillating spindle sander. I also have some handheld power tools including some Ryobi Drill/Drivers, Finish Nailer, palm and orbital sanders and a B&D Jigsaw. I have built a wood storage bench out of 2×4s that has come in handy but I need more work surface. I plan to build an outfeed/assembly table once I’ve removed a good portion of the junk out of the garage and far away from home. The first photo shows what I think I’d like my workshop to become.

I drew the construction stuff like the table and the shelving but the tools and such were just imported models of similar items that I would like to setup. I did not draw the tools.
