Great shop! Nice band saw too. :)
The overhead wood rack is a great idea!

I love that wood storage rack. There’s a lot of tools packed in there too. Thanks for sharing.

Yes, that bandsaw is very nice! The painted walls seem to make it part of the house (instead of white like mine).

Two questions: How does the Rikon air cleaner work for you? And did you use a kit to insulate the garage door?

Yeah, I’m with JC, that is a beast of a bandsaw.

The air cleaner works well. I typically turn it on High and set the timer to 2 hours unless I’m doing some aggressive sanding. Then i’ll bump it to 4 hours. I used to get a nice layer of dust on everything the next day. Since I have been using it this stopped happening. There are two sets of filters. A sort of cone filter in the center of the machine and the normal rectangular filter on tieback. So far I have only replaced the Rectangular one.

I bought a few rolls of bubble core reflective insulation at Home Depot and some aluminum tape. Then just cut it until it fit the shape of the door and taped it in place. Texas heat in August it is absolutely unbearable. My garage door faces northwest so it gets hammered at the hottest part of the day. I was shocked at how well it worked. With no insulation I was constantly running at 103f to 105f on the bare aluminum. Using a Rikon digital thermometer. After I put in the insulation it dropped to 88f at the hottest part of the day. Flip the fan on and its possible to work without fear of heatstroke. :)
