Currently working out of an extended garage. I have most of my tools on wheels and I roll the cars out of the way in order to work. Not the best but it will do for now. Equipment is mostly vintage Delta, some of which I have restored. I also have a DeWalt RAS and a Fay-Egan lathe.

Thanks, looking forward to retirement when I can restore the rest of the tools and then put them to work. Still need a planer and to bring the lathe home.

Great looking shop Jim. Those vintage tools will serve you well when your restoration is complete. Your bench setup is much like my own, only I have a chop saw between them and they serve as "out feed" tables for the chop saw. You mentioned upcoming retirement. Good luck with that and start a new career in your new shop. Stick with these guys and enjoy.

That table is there, just had it off when I brought that machine home and took the photo. You never want to move a bandsaw with the table on! It dates back to the 1930s. I put it back on a Delta stand, added a belt guard and found a vintage 1/3 hp Delta motor for it with push/pull rod switch.

Love the vintage tools. What year is that band saw? I have one that is very similar. Old iron is waaayyy underestimated.
Nice set up.

I would have to check the list again but it is around 1936-1939. Love the 3-stripe Delta logo. My bandsaw, jig saw and Unisaw are all from the 1930s.
