Appleton , WI 54913
United States

I’m a boatbuilder by educated trade and built them for about 15 years. I moved to Wisconsin and with it came a trade change I now own a tree service buisness.
My 1100sq ft shop is part of a large detached garage next to my home. I have way too many plans in future to even try and figure which I will actually get around to doing but I guess we will eventually see
Tools include a powermatic 66, an 8” grizzly jointer, 15” delta thickness planer, clausing 15” drill press, 20” no-name solid cast iron bandsaw, ubiquitous 14” delta bandsaw.
South bend 10” metal lathe.
Stanley hand planes from no.2 to no.8 with a bunch of duplicates languishing in boxes. Chisels yep I’ve got em in mass. Self made wood planes by the box load. I’ve got a couple of Emmert pattern makers vises. I guess that’s what spending just about every dollar I’ve ever made and didn’t eat gets you. A lot of heavy things to pick up every time you move.

I’ve only been in the place for a year and a half, and the shop hasn’t been the priority. Gutting the house was the first project. Now I need to finish the shop so I can make trim and build some 5 panel doors.

I guess that leads to a question.
Should I get a shaper for cutting datos and tenons for the doors or just do it with a table saw and radial arm saw? I am going to make at least seven doors.

Nice bunch of tools. Nice big space. I’d love to see some closeups of the 20” bandsaw, we can probably determine who made it so it won’t be “no-name” anymore.

So apparently I’ve forgotten what I have. I spend all of my time out here moving tools around trying to insulate and sheath the walls and ceiling that I haven’t used the tools much. And as I bought the bandsaw early last year and only used it once ; it somehow downgraded itself to a 20” saw when it’s actually a 26”.
As for the saw, I bought it for $250 and the guy said he didn’t know the make. I spent some time going over it but couldn’t find a name on it either. I was taking pics to post and actually found the makers casting mark. But I’m curious to see if anyone recognizes what it is so I’ll keep that to myself for a short bit.
It’s currently set up to cut metal and has a 13:1 reduction gear box, so I don’t use it yet. I will get the appropriate belt pulleys to cut wood. I have seen the equations for figuring the pulley sizes. I am going to make non-concentric round rods to make the attachment of the guides much less clumsy.

My wife tested positive for COVID last weekend and so I’m at home In quarantine. I’ve started putting up the ceiling sheathing. I didn’t have a drywall jack so I started looking around on marketplace and then looked up ideas for diy hoists and this is what I came up with. Seems to work great even though bits a bit cumbersome.

Nice size shop, be great to see when you get it set up. Sorry to hear about your wife.

I have to add you as a buddy. (The boat builder) I may have some questions down the road. Really want to build one myself, and I even have a plan set picked out
