Thread: Paul's little place

  1. #1

    Paul's little place

    Well folks it me again and I figured I would give my little tour of my place. Definately not in the same league as Tod's place but I can get some decent work done there. One thing you will notice is...it ain't clean! I am organized (everything has its place) but I refuse to keep the place "clean". I will warn you if you ever come by and visit you WILL get dirty..... oh by the way I do have a vernier caliper too! but just do not tell anyone Oh by the way can you guess what particular brand I like?

    Don,
    Nope it is a ...Grizzly. I got it about 8 years or so ago. Nothing special it spins a bit. Definatley a bit small to my liking but I just do not use it all that much

    Thanks for thr tour Paul. You have a very efficient looking set up. Don't worry about clean - clean is bad!! I would far rather see a shop that looks like somebody uses it.

    On the shaper - are those infeed/outfeed rollers on extending rods? Is that a standard item offered by minimax - I have never seen them on any of their machines over here.


    Again - thanks for posting.

    Ian,
    Yes those are infeed / outfeed rollers. I added those after purchase. I also added the outrigger arm and outrigger table (the same system you will see on their small sliders and new small combo). I have used that set up to do tenoning, cope & stick, etc.....basically it is some what similiar to Tod's setup except his is all cast iron, huge castings, and oh maybe 200-300lbs heavier! My shaper is no cupcake but it is not a Formula machine either. Since I added my little power feeder it is a very versatile machine and suits my very low production needs nicely.

    Tod....actually those pictures are when the shop is clean..... you should see it now!

    I liked you better when you had the Agazzani. After all, you are the one that convinced me to buy one. But I can tell you for sure I'm not converting to MM.

    Nice setup Paul. That's a pretty impressive bandsaw you have there! I was just looking at the MM16 on their website. What reason did you go for the 24"? Do you do alot of resawing.
