    made some slide thingy's for the benchtop tools, makes it easy to pull out one without the others being in the way. I can peg/pin the ply-bases to the slides if vibration requires..and I also added a couple of slide-in supports for left of the mitre saw, the right side I use a roller guide when needed...

    still a ton of stuff I'd like to do, and will, but at a much more leisurely pace...least things are back to useable for now...

    oh yeah, I can actually get to my compressor to drain it on a regular basis now...I filled up a 9" x11" baking pan 'twice' , it was a pain to get to before, now I just move a chair & the shop vac

    Great looking shop Ken but way too neat

    The sliding things are pretty ingenious

    I like it, looks good.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    That's quite an improvement. Ditto me on the slidey things. Great idea.
