Here are some old pictures I found on my computer. Someday I am going to clean out the shop and take some pictures… Or do they give awards for the messiest shops? Right now I am afraid mine would not pass the MsDebbieP inspection.
In my defense, I recently acquired my Dad’s tools and haven’t yet assimilated them into my shop, so that is most of the mess.
It is 24 X 36. non heated (yet) – but well insulated.
It has the standard complement of tools: HF Jointer. Sunhill 12” planer, Much older than me Delta Unisaw. a couple of other smaller TSaws. Delta/Rockwell RAS. Delta 18-36 Drum Sander w/ Jet dustcollector. another Jet dust collector for ambient dust. Shaper, Drill Press, Lathe, etc. I have mentioned before my storage rack/ panel saw I built. I found a picture of the panel saw side of it before it was done. I will take some better ones later.

You have some nice tools in there to play with. They may not be the latest and greatest but, to tell the truth, vintage tools like you have are well worth the money. They “just don’t make them like they used to” today. You have got some fine American made machines in there that will continue to perform for years to come.

It is nice to see some sawdust in there too. This gives the shop a look that says it is being used. Mine gets like that at times but that usually precipitates my getting yelled at for “tracking sawdust everywhere” and then given an ultimatum of “you clean it up or I will”. Of course I would rather clean it because if my wife does I can’t find anything after she goes through there like a tornado. :)

Thanks for the post. I enjoyed visiting with you.

WOW, appearently you have more time in your shop than I have? according to the weather? We have banana weather here in Goshen county. Still burning wood ‘tho. that’s all the heat I have in the shop. Keep on Trucking.

Ha, sweet, I thought I must be the only Wyomingite on here! Nice to meet ya! By the way, how do you like your HF jointer? Is it a 6”? I really need a jointer, and a thickness planer actually, and I’d like to not shell out too much.

It is a 7”- kind of an odd size… I bought it about 20 years ago. It works ok. I would rather be without a jointer than a planer though.
