Having checked out the FWW site for several days, in registering this evening I wanted to Intrroduce myself and ask a few quick "Beginner" questions;
1.) I'm in the process of setting up a 12x18 Basement shop. In cruising the Shop Tours, I was most impressed and also quite encouraged with the great solutions shared for small shops.
2.) I have an older Craftsman 10" RAS in superb shape. Having bought this from the original owner who wasa upgrading, all I need to do now is learn to "Tune_Up" and align it which seems pretty deep in reading the manual.
3.) In the process of building my Mitre station w/ Dewalt 705 12". With the design I am working up I can also incorporate a fairly nice Router station, using that 7-Ft wall for a Multi-Unit work space.
4.) Placing my P/C Pancake compressor in a small shed that butts to my shop area to reduce noise level and would like to add a Grizzly 2/HP at later date. ** When I insulated and dry-walled this space I roughed in 2.5" Schedule 40 across the ceiling of the shop that will allow me to hopefully install B/Gates as I add my Wrk/stations. Concerns me that I see mostly LARGE-4" hose for most tools you guys are running?
My plan is to begin adding following tools. Building a list for Christmas to give to the Mrs & entire family for Lowes cards, no Jeans, etc. this year!
RYI-3100 or PS-15 (Read quite a few positive comments on TS-3 site)
To close for this evening, I wanted to thank everyone that contributes. It's amazing how much a new person wanting to learn W/Working can glean just looking at shops and custom work/stations you guys have posted. I hope to post my humble start-up shop by the New Year!!
