Insulation is a touchy subject for a couple of folks around here. I just couldn't work in my shop in winter without insulation. You just can't heat an un-insulated shop without running up a huge electric bill. And you're not supposed to wear long sleeves (jacket) around spinning blades. It won't take that long to put it in, you'll be happy you did.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I have had the insulation for about 60 months and just have not found the time to install it. When I think I will have time jobs come out of everywhere and it is put off for awhile.

It getting cool now lets me know I need to get it done and not put it off like some people here on the forum!

I have always hated to install insulation,even though I have done quite some of it. The fiber glass makes me miserable. Just break a bundle open in the direct sun light and see all the fine particles fly into the air. All I have to do is think about it and I start to itch and break out. I even tape my cuffs and cover every exposed part, still itch. The walls are the easiest, the overhead is the worst.

I guess they have improved on it recently ,even have plastic wrap enclosed batts. Rock wool has even improved, it used to be the worst.
Like Tom says , it is a necessity. Try to get some help,by the time you move all your equipment alone, you will be too tired to insulate.

I always thought a woodwokers block was a hardwood 4X4 or 6X6 block on the bench to pound on so not to mar the bench.

I think you have gone beyond the expiration date on the Roxul, Rick.

I like to look for projects that have techniques or material I have never tried before. The instructables website can offer a lot of inspiration. Projects like this one

Concrete and Wood Slab Table

give you an idea of what is possible. Plus, the step by step instructions give you an idea that there isn't any reason you can't do it!
