Default 4th and hopefully final shop

Recently sold my 2500 sq. ft. wood shop with almost all my tools. New one is 24 x 30 in my back yard. I added a 6x12 shed on one side to store my camping gear and less clutter in the shop. Got it recaulked and power washed and ready for paint. Inside is insulated, OSB walls, sheet rock ceiling.
Added a water cooler, 18000 btu AC and the big dawg heater will be installed tomorrow.

I went with the Shop Fox air filter and so far it is working well and quiet.
Got some of the new tools purchased but still have not decided on which table saw I will be getting. It is good to finally get at least a work bench in, no telling how many times I have moved stuff around in a circle. I will post up some tools pics soon, it is really nice to start with mostly new tools, other than having to put them together.

Oh sure, Lord your big shop over me with my 8X12 shop.

Congrats on having a really nice sized shop. Mine is 12x24 and I really would love to have that extra 18 feet. Looks great. BTW, I have a Laguna 10 inch Fusion saw that is a really great machine, accurate, available in several variations. 115v or 220, 36 or 52 inch capacity. (almost 8 ft wide for the 52 inch model, and just about $100 more for the extra width.) Plenty of hp even on 115v, and you can order 220 or have it changed later.

Really flat table on mine and pretty easy to move around. Price is nice too for a very good saw. At least give it a look.

Thank you. I had not considered a Laguna. I had only looked at the Grizzly 1023, around 1700$, and the Saw Stop which with all the extras will be around 4000$. I pulled up the Laquna at Rockler, 1300$ so it is in my range.
I do not think I will get the 52" this time, just takes up to much room and I bought a Makita track saw to break down sheets. I am gonna do more research on the Laguna, thanks.

How is the dust collection on the Laguna?

Yes it is, and commercial grade, my last one which went with the shop was a lighter version and I loved it. Seems to be an age thing with RAS, more older guys seem to like them, or maybe understand them a little better.

This one was given to me by my cousin just before he died this year. Had to clean it up a bit as it had been sitting under a tarp for a while. Looking forward to using it.
