Kennwick, WA 99352
United States

I am currently working out of a one car garage. It is outfitted with a Ridgid table saw, Porter Cable 15” drill press, Jet 14” band saw, 12” Makita compound sliding miter saw, a 1952? Delta Milwaukee Radial Arm Saw, Central Machinery lathe, router table and a plethora of hand tools. I have plenty more tools than my skill set currently support. I suspect it will always be that way though. Pictures to come soon.

2016 Update: Well I’m now working out of a two car garage and have updated a few bigger tools. Sold the Ridgid R4512 and got a Grizzly1023. Upgraded the Makita to a 12” Dewalt compound slider. I also have since purchased a Dremel scroll saw and a Ridgid oscillating spindle sander. Now if I can just get some more time to spend in the shop.

Sounds like a good collection of tools and a great place to start; looking forward to those pictures.

Coming very soon Mark. Here’s my issue. It has been so cold here in Iowa I was heating my garage with a portable propane heater. Well with as cold as it has been, when I warmed the garage up, it caused all of my cast iron surfaces to produce condensation. Needless to say, I had more rust that I would like on all of my tool surfaces. I have decided to stay out of the shop until the weather breaks. Right now the garage is full of “garage stuff”. I guess spring cleaning will have a very defined purpose this year.
