But if you had no size restriction what would you say would be the best foot print around the machine to work with it?
I am thinking that a good foot print for a table saw would have 4 feet on both sides and 18 feet in feed and out feed. And a planer could go next to a wall with 4 or so feet of space to one side and again 18 feet of in feed and out feed.
Same thing with a joiner. Work benches with 4 feet all the way around but that space could overlap with work space of some of the machinery.
