    Well, yeah...I guess so. Way too organized and clean to have done anything worthwhile in there.
    Great looking shop Ken!! Tell us a little more about the TS and the Jointer. The jointer looks like a big brother to my ShopMaster. Jim.

    Hi Jim, these pix were taken, probably after a hard night of liquid inspiration time

    Can't tell ya much on the combo set...they're 1949 Rockwell/Delta Home/something something{lol i forget at the moment...old age!}. The table saw is an 8 " titling table model and the jointer is the 4" model and they sit on the original stand and are powered by the original 1/2 horse motor...bout all I know.

    They work well for me as I usually do smaller items, any sheetwork get's the cs sizing treatment outside the shop...

    Thanks Brent

    I think that looks great in there. Homey and bright. Can't wait to see what boxes get cranked out....

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Nice looking shop. I can relate to cutting sheet good down outside.


    I purchased a 10" TS 6" Jointer 1 HP version of your TS/Jointer system for my Dad's small 8'x24' shop for $125. I Had to shim the back Jointer table 10 thousands to correct it to proper specifications it works great, it has a jet lock fence that works fine. don't think it has been used very much.

    Love seeing a Radial Arm Saw in a shop... I'm in the process of getting an old beast of a multiplex up and running...
