« Part 1: Prelim stage...planning Part 2 of New Shop Layout series no next part

Tools I have:
- 2 table saws (Old craftsman 100 series, was given to me, not working, cleaned it up, and now its my main tablesaw.) I want a sawstop, and maybe one day I will. The other is a millwakee delta homecraft, build date 7/48? Currently not running, but have a double shaft 3/4 hp motor. Table is good, but just needs cleaning.
- 4” craftsman jointer, that my father in law gave me.
- lots of clamps
- Various hand tools, planers etc.
- Drill stand (cheap, again given to me by my dad)
- Ryobi drill set, radio, drill, impact, saw. About 15 yrs old, and will still snap your wrist, you guessed it FREE, well My dad bought a new set, and gave me this. Little tid bit about that drill in the pic. I just finished putting 1500 screws (3”) in a new deck. It got hot and went thru batteries, but it did fine.
- Craftsman skill saw
- Dewalt 10 miter saw, given to me
- Central Pnematic 8gal compressor
- Other tools that I can’t think of

Tools I want:
- Planer (helical cut, or really old vintage type one)
- Better jointer, (helical cut, or newer brand)
- DC setup (maybe simple HF one)
- Maybe a lathe one day
- Bigger compressor, one to handle a HVLP (one day)

For the planers and jointers, I’m kinda partial to the helical cut blades because of how they feel, and the quality that it ends up as. (at least in my experience, I recognize others may not have had the same)

Next I’ll try to get some crude drawings on some ideas of the shop layout.
