New Paltz, NY 12561
United States

We moved in May so now I have a lot more space, still getting organized and setup. I’ve re-arranged things twice now making better use of space. I found these cabinets on Craigslist which gave me a an additional work surface and much needed storage. I like the melamine finish, it makes them easy to clean and wipe down. I keep looking for more. The Ridgid radial arm saw is the new tool addition to the shop. I am amazed how much sawdust gets collected by the delta air cleaner. I also wear a mask now when I’m working.

Update 1-25-16. SO after having to reset 15 amp breakers frequently, I got an electrician in to add some additional power to the shop. Since it required a building permit I had to get someone licensed and have it inspected. I do know how to do this sort of thing so he agreed to let me be the helper for a discount on the labor part of the job. I have a new sub-panel in one of those closet doors you see so if I ever need to add its pretty easy. All surface mounted 20 amp receptacles in various places on 4 different circuits. This also allowed me to add over head lighting I didn’t have before. The 4’ florescent lights were from Lowe’s and the kind that just plug-in. I purchased replacement ceiling fan pull switches to the tune of about $4 each and converted all the lights for on and off control.

I spent about 4 hrs on Sunday putting tools away and cleaning the shop so while its still clean I shot some new photos. I have several new tool upgrades since the last shoot. The Ridgid table saw, gift from wife. The Craftsman drill press was a Craigslist find and bench-top disk belt sander was from an estate auction. It was brand new never used.

Nice shop. Had to smile at the vise grip hanging on your table saw. I have the same saw, and the plastic cranks failed on me too. I made wooden replacements and posted about them in a blog entry here . They work well.
