Workshop Information

Location
United States
My shop is a two car garage that hasn't had a car parked in it since about 1987. Its about 300 square feet and has to share space with the washer, dryer and freezer but those are along the wall and don't interfere with the general working area of the shop. I have a 1.75 HP PCS SawStop, Laguna 1412 bandsaw, Incra router table, 12 inch Bosch Glide miter saw, SuperMax 19-38 drum sander, Dewalt 735 Planer, a 8 inch Powermatic jointer and everything is on a dust collection system. Also small assortment of hand planes, chisels, hand saws and rasps. Along with that I have spent money on a Festool track saw, Domino and sander along with one of their vac systems. I removed the crochet hook on the work bench and added a Bench Crafted leg vise

When the shop picture was taken my DC and small 6 inch Grizzly jointer where just out of the picture to the right. Now the DC is at the end of the table saw were the gray cart is in the photo and the Powermatic jointer is were the DC used to be.

Good evening from NC. I am new to woodworking at the age of 57; however, i have some of the same power tools. My shop i detached 24×28 however, i still keep vehicles in the space; therefore, some of the tools have to be mobile.

I seriosly considering the purchase the Laguna 14bx 220 2.5 hp bandsaw. Next on the list is the powermatic jointer. I was actually looking at the supermax 19-38 drum sander today. Will have to continue to save my pennies for tools. Based on all of the research I have done most folks recommended that i should purchase the bandsaw before the jointer. I have a Grizzly 5 hp table saw and the same planer and miter saw that you do. Any guidance that you can give a new wood worker would be welcome and appreciated.

Thank you

Hey Ceick, The 14bx wasn't available when I got my 1412. It would be nice to have the foot brake but not having it hasn't bothered me and the price difference may have stopped me anyway, the 1412 was right at my price limit at the time.

The jointer is the 60c model and it gives a real nice surface. I know there is a lot of talk ou there in regards to the helical heads but I don't do a lot with figured wood and again the price difference got in the way. I just decided that when the blades on this one need sharpening I would revisit the idea of the helical head at that time.

I think you would be real happy with the 19-38 drum sander, its a real beast.

I am like you, all my tools are mobile but they pretty much stay where they are. But you never know, a shop is always evolving and changing

Good looking setup, and nice array of machines. Thanks for letting readers take a peek in your shop.

I would like to know how, or if at all, the dust piping run that goes under the opened rollup door, is supported. Is it just cantilevered from the place where it leaves the ceiling and drops down to clear the door?

I have a rollup door that i installed for easy access to my shop. I like having it, but now i would like to have a scheme to get some things suspended under it when it is in the open position.

Thanks!

The vertical pipe goes all the way to the ground with a plug on the end of it. Plus below the wye's for the planer and table saw I blocked off the pipe the rest of the way to the floor. It is not a real rigid setup but it works real well. If you look at the picture with the jointer you can sort of see the pipe behind the right end of the jointer. This was taken before I moved the jointer to its present location.

Chet,
Looks good!. What kind of dust collector are you running, and what is the CFM? I'm looking to upgrade my small Delta unit when I move into my new shop later this spring and I'm trying to get some ideas.
Thanks!!

I got it from Penn State Industries. It is 1.75 hp and 1250 cfm. I does a pretty adequate job because I only have a tool at a time turned on. Unfortunately they have gotten out of the dust collector biz for the most part, just some real small ones to go with the small lathes they sell.

I have been looking to up grade to a small Oneida or maybe on of the Laguna models. I am kind of restricted in what I can get because of the location and room in that location.

Yea, I like to put everything away at the end of everyday, even if I know I will be using it again. I just find it a nice way to start each shop session.
