Thread: Shop Tour

    Shop Tour

    Hi everyone, havent posted here much, but love the shop tours, today has been raining and cold so it was a perfect day to clean the shop a little and take few pics, its basically half of a full basment, the other half of the basement is finished w/den and bedroom, that is outdated and will soon be taken over as a spray booth and assembly room, but until then this is what I have to work with.

    The saw, shaper and wide belt are the most used tools by far, so I arranged them in the middle of the space, with the saw getting a whole bay to its self, with the outrigger romoved, I get a decent sized assembly area

    This pic is from one garage door looking in, the outfeed table serves as storage for the shaper

    This is the other side of the shop, these tools get used less so they are positioneded against the wall

    I buy all my lumber S2S so the planer is the least used tool in the shop, so I mounted it on a lift cart to save space

    WOW!! Nice setup Jay. That's quite a large Basement you have there too. With that equipment, I'll bet you're on the "Valued Customer" list at the "Electron Factory" too.

    Now we need to see some Projects from there.

    Wow Jay, that is impressive!
