Workshop Information

Location
United States
My shop is the garage. I created this about 6 months before I retired so I could hit the ground running. Started with Grizzly planer, jointer and dust collector. Then got several nice freebies - Makita 2030 Jointer Planer Combo, 5/8 Drill Press, Bench Grinder, Record vise and a ShopSmith bandsaw were all stored in a barn for years. I got them free, but had to rebuild them all as they were heavily rusted. Just finished building the new router table as I got a Jessem Rout-R-Lift for Christmas. Table saw I've had for years, old Craftsman but has had several modifications, including Delta fence, stainless steel right wing and upgraded the motor pivot mounts. Pretty good dust collection on every machine. Stainles steel work table by work bench is restaurant surplus. Not shown is a used Gast Vacuum pump which was another super deal. There's 2 fold up work tables for large layouts. The wife's storage is all in bins on the ceiling. One small corner for hurricane generator and lawn tools. And yes, I can still get both cars in there when I move the machines up on the curb against the walls.
