Nice. It looks like somebody’s been cleaning!

Lots of room and fairly simple, and I don’t see a single doohickey or thingamajig. Well done!
Love the bright lighting. Led’s?

It doesn’t look like that now, lol

I took these as I was moving in.
I have only been here for about 4 months, so still have some work to do, but doing Everything by myself and trying to keep bills paid leaves a lot of things undone.
It’s not perfect by any means and lacks a lot of tools, but I manage.
The lighting is mostly florescents and skylights, with a couple of hanging halogens. It does pretty good.
Not many Doohickey’s or Thingamajig’s. It’s as needed, lol

You don’t always need a thingamajig, sometimes you just freehand it. ;)

That’s OK, I’m comfortable in my skin. I’ve been freehanding things for years.
I’ll live with the consequences of my choices.

That’s what I’m talkin about. If I ever catch you with a thingamajiger I’ll lose all respect.

- Tony_S

A jointer.
I get by without one and I can use my buddies whenever I need to,
but I would like to get my own some day when I grow up.
That’s about the only thing I need,
I would prefer a bigger bandsaw, but it’s not needed for the little stuff I do.

If you have any extra, just send them to me. It’s all downhill from your place. ;)
An 8” powermatic, and an 18” bandsaw would be fine, I’m not picky….

Geez…No 8’s I’ve only got a couple of 16’s. And other than 2 14” inch band saws like you have, there’s only a big ol’ dinosaur 36” To dangerous to push down the hill. The bloody thing probably weighs 1500lbs easy.
There here though…

Thanks anthm27,
Thanks crowie,

Your too funny pottz, just goes to show you don’t need good stuff to make things…
My buddy up the road from me lets me use his, but for most of the stuff I make s3s is good enough,
I’ve learned to pick wood as straight as I can, and to use all the other methods for truing up stock.
Table saw and wide belt does wonders.

Damn Tony, you must have one of those old Tannewitz band saws?
I’ll have to wait until I get a good enough job to pay for me to come up and use your stuff.

- LeeRoyMan

I’m pretty sure it’s a Tannewitz? Never paid much attention to the name to tell you the truth. Looks just like one though.
It’s a POS and a total waste of real estate. It’s WAY oversized for anything we need to use it for…doesn’t resaw worth a shit, it’s got NO balls. There’s two Hitachi resaws in the shop anyways, so it needs to go away.
I’m not much for old ‘arn.
I’m surprised you don’t have a sliding table saw. It’s not often you see a cabinet shop without one anymore.

I never would have thought of put an air compressor up on a platform like that to get it out of the way. Does it make maintenance difficult. I don’t mean to start another blog, but, I always thought I would like to have one with a vertical tank so I could drain all the tank easier. Can you put it on a slope so the water naturally runs to the drain?
