I have been working in the basement for 2 days installing a new HVAC ( watch for that thread in construction ).
Here is a plan I made trying to figure out where to put the cyclone
So I decided to take a set of pictures that really showed the whole shop and how it fits together.
So here they are:
Along one wall I have mostly movable machines.
The 6" belts sander was a gift from a friend. It's 220v and he did not have it available. It's very old and a great machine.
The Laguna HD16 has been wonderful. It's 220v and a 4 1/2 hp motor. It has the trimaster blade which does an excellent resaw.
The drill press just got moved to it's new base. Here's the album.
Next down the line is my Norm like router table. I love this machine. Every time I use it I find more value in it as a tool.
Here's the album on it's build.
Painting all of the wall's white, REALLY helped with the feel of the shop. The shop feels like a place I want to be not just a basement with block walls.
This picture shows the tablesaw, it's base and some of the outfeed table. You can also see my "finishing" area.
Here's another view of the tablesaw, showing it's relationship to the bandsaw wall. On the far left of the 2nd pic you can see the beginning of the new battery stable.
Next is the tool wall. This is one of the 1st things I did. I was just starting to use a table saw again after many years. So I thought it would be fun to craeat tool holders screwed to a sheet of plywood. This has been very use full and satisfing ( I really do not like pegboard ). But I do like clamps. Never can have enough. I find that I use most them in some way or another.
Here's my workbench. It was like the 2nd project. This is all 2x4's and kreg pockethole screws. I got a 7" vise installed. It has served me very well. Somewhere on my list is a real workbench, but for now this works very well.
Next up is the cutoff saw bench and the storage above. This has evolved. I really like the yellow bins. This also holds my mortise machines and my new WorkSharp. The chargers recently got moved to the bandsaw wall where I am creating a new world for all of the batteries in my life.
The jointer has a home on the end of the bandsaw. This has been a GREAT investment. It has the spiral cutters, which just work!!!
So that's my shops as of July 2008. It does keep changing.
The next big project is to actually pipe the cyclone. I have most of the parts for that.
Also working on finishing the table for my daughter.
