I have the use of one bay of a garage for a workshop. Everything I have is on rollers so I can position tools as needed or pull everything out to clean up. I can pretty much do what I need to in the garage although working with sheet goods requires moving the tablesaw out onto the driveway or taking the cars out of the rest of the garage. I’d really like to upgrade the electrical service which is limited to 110V/20A.

Looks like a nice garage shop, how do you like the Steel City saw?

Tim, this looks like a shop that would be fun to work in. You have effectively used the space that you have and it is well organized. Plus making your power tools mobile is essential for those of us with smaller shops.

You have a nice set of tools to play with as well.
Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.

Very nice shop Tim!

I do like your outfeed on the saw (you commented on my 22124 review). In fact, I like all of your cabinets and work bench! You’ve got a lot going on in that room.
