    Wow wysong, not just seeing green...feeling it too.

    Wow! I guess my only question is "How'd you get all that into only 1200 square feet?

    well Jim :

    there used to be a lot more , but I did a machine purge
    this spring and a bunch of machines left .

    I still have room (200 sq ft) to bring in a car and close the door
    without having to move anything , this is only a one man shop.
    so really it's in about 900 sq ft , cause of the old showroom too.

    thanks for the comments

    I am jealous.

    Wadda dissapointment. I thought I would be seeing green Grizzly machines.
    Actually, a very impressive shop.
    That electrical set-up on the wall is a stopper. Do you have a separate circuit switch for each machine?
    I love that big ole Crescent band saw.

    Lots of "Hutch Green" in that shop.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    No, not all of SoCal is Los Angeles!
    Great tour Wysong. It is great to see all those machines in use. Massive saw/shaper station setup, that would eat my whole general working area ;-) Thanks for showing it.

    I run 3 different transformers for 3 phase , I don't have a
    single phase lead into the shop.
    the vo9ltages I use are
    600/3, 460/3, 377/3, 240/3, 208/3 .
    and from my 208/3 I grab my single phase 120/220

    by code every machine must have a shut off within 6 ft (easy reach )
    of the machine, then back to a fused disconnect after it feeds from the
    spliter boxes , on that wall is some of the 3 phase fused disconnects,
    there are about 5 other panels in here also .

    does this answer your question.
