hey all. a little info about my shop.. i share the shop with my dad and we have only been woodworking for about a year now, so we are still building up our shop tools.

our shop is 25×40. with wood heat. it stays warm. our biggest tool is a 15in general cabinet planer, we are going to upgrade to a 20 in this summer.

bandsaw is a new craftsman 14in. it was on sale, but i would not recommend it to anyone. the guide bearings froze up on it 2 days after we got it. and like all craftsman, weird size blades. 99 1/2in.

table saw is a delta contractors with a 8 ft outfeed table.

a craftsman wood lathe. got it the same time as the bandsaw. also on sale. ive had to repair it several time allready. the pulleys keep getting stuck on the shafts.

a homemade outboard wood lathe. can turn up to 6 ft in diameter! just finnished it in december 2009. have not used it yet. post some pic of it soon.

craftsman drill press, routers, saws, and all your basic hand tool.

also going to try in install a vacum system this summer. i really need one….

Larry, I agree with Jim about the photos. How about posting some when you get the opportunity?

I can’t wait to see pictures of this. Yeah, I have never been very impressed with craftsman.

Have your say...
