- My Shop
Some detailed information about my workshop.
- Power Tools
- Table saw (Unisaw with Unifence), Band saw (14" PC), Drill Press (PC), Jointer (1940's era Walker-Turner), Shaper (LD Rockwell), Table-top Planer (Ryobi). Router table with VS PC motor mounted in a Bench Dog lift. Mostly build cabinets from plywood and switching over to a track saw because of back/shoulder problems. Radial Arm saw has been sold, to be replaced by a track saw table,
Favorite router is a D-handle PC with Warner offset base. Next is my Ryobi trimmer.
- My Shop
- Have my shop in a detached 2 car garage (24' x 24'), installed a mini-split heat pump so that I can work out there year round. Updating my dust collection to help minimize dust being sucked into the mini-split, just added an air cleaner to help with that.
