Workshop Information

Location
United States
My Humble workshop in a 23' X 23' Garage.
I ran separate power 15a 110v for the lights and Garage Door.
A 20a 110v circut for all the tools and Dust Collector.
A separate 20a 110v for the 26 gallon air compressor located outside the shop and piped in for air tools.
A 30a 220v circut for the Table Saw/ Bandsaw/ Joiner.
My Radial Arm Saw was my Grandfather's I am sure it is from the 60's. Can anyone ID it for me?

This looks like a really nice shop in which to work. You appear to have utilized your space well and I like the windows that you have in your shop since they will admit natural light, which I find easier to work with. That is also a nice modification that you have done to the table saw to improve its functionality.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed the tour.

The table saw mod was one that evolved over time. The is an extension I can add to the back to go to the router table that will alow me to cut a full sheet of plywood by myself. I made sure I could cut full sheets both directions unsupported. The OSB box I put in the bottom of the Contractors Saw stand catches everything the dusk collection system misses. Helps keep the shop clean with a minimal of sweep up after a day of playing (working)

Eye candy! My peepers don't know where to look first :)

Great stuff. I've become a pretty big fan of orange (Ridgid), too. We've got a few of the same tool choices.

Roomy. Well laid out. Well stocked.

Very nice! Many thanks for letting us drop in :)

I too am becoming a fan of Ridgid. Got a Ridgid Shop Vac, a Ridgid Planer, and the TS3650 Table saw like you. Would like to have that jointer too. Someday maybe.

Yea, my Wife "made" me buy that joiner… gotta love her! She is a big part of my hobby. She cant turn a screw the right way, but she has never bought me a tie for fathers day. I got a Dewalt Biscuit Joiner from her one year. I didn't know she even knew what one was let alone knew what it was called. Yes I am a happy man!

A clean shop relies on a good dust Collection system. If you have a good was to cary debris from the machines you will spend less time sweeping up after them. I use a box fan in an MDF box with a 20" x 20" hepa filter infront of it to filter dust from the air. Works great! My Dust collection system is a 950 cfm Jet that has been ported out the side of the garage into a dust bin. So no filter to impede suction. The piping is cheap abs drainage pipe at $7 for a 10' section of 4" pipping.

Chip, Nice looking shop, very well laid out. It is nice to have a wife that supports your hobby, mine likes to have the made stuff around so it is a good thing.

Great looking shop. Too bad you don't have a closeup of the RAS, but guessing from the general shape and color I would guess Craftsman. No way to tell for sure without getting a closer look…
