Workshop Information

Location
United States
a 12×25ish detached garage, more of a "work in progress-shop" in the process of emptying it out now and will redesign it from the floor up.
i'll have to work on getting pics of it. i dont have any of th overall space… dont even have that old delta bandsaw anymore.actually been dismantled for years and just yesterday someone took it away for the scrap metal! i replaced it was a grizzly G0555, but then sold that and nowi have a mini-max mm16 bandsaw now and its the best tool in my shop,i'll never need another bandsaw..i really liked the little grizzly too.

Matthew, you appear to have a nice shop in which to work. Having windows is a plus for any shop since I find it easier to work with natural lighting than florescent light. Your shop is well organized and that is a nice lathe and scoll saw that you have. Those are two tools that are on my wish list, especially the lathe.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

thanks scott, yea windows and full size garage door are big pluses..skylights are a dream i have for it too..although i store so much stuff in the eve,not sure how much light will coem through ha,.

the shop is actually quite a mess!
which is why i want to clear it all out and design a new layout. but it's getting there.
Everything is on casters so i can move it all around,and clean easier.
most of my stationary benchtop tools are mounted in mobile-bases with flip-top/swivel tops.
i did away with the rats-nest of 4" dust hose/piping all over and opted for the very flexible and collapsable Dustright hose from Rockler, i am VERY PLEASED witht hat purchase.it actually makes me want to use the DC again…only problem i have is that this is a very old house with small curcuit panel.using DC and lights and a big tool like my 220v bandsaw or the tablesaw pops the breaker..gotta figure out a(inexpensive) solution to that one.. i'll post the sketchup shop design as a project eventually.
