Default Hybrid Rockler - NYW Router Table and Pictures of a Small Shop

I bought a Rockler Router Table a couple of years ago. I had a poplar stick frame under it until I bought the plans from NYW to build a new table. We live in a duplex condominum and only have a one- car garage. I am thankful that the neighbour lets us park our Pontiac Solstice in the adjacent garage. Enjoy the pictures. They are in no particular order. -Derek

Hey Derek. Thanks for the pics. Looks like you have a nice shop setup. I couldn't help notice the SS Greenie. I have a 510 upgraded to 520 with the bandsaw. Do you ever visit the Shopsmith forum?

George, Thanks for noticing. I have visited that forum on occasion. It has been a couple of months. My old 500 is from December of 1954 I think. I have upgraded to a 520. It was given to me buy a dear friend. I have purchased just about all that I can for it. I have several smaller power tools to enhance the shop. I forgot to dispaly all of my Oak- Park items. I did drill the Rocklet top to accept the OP box joint jigs. It is also very cool to live 60 miles from Grizzly. -Derek

60 miles, that is nice. How do you like the G0555 so far? Thanks for the shop pics. Right Harry!

Boy that brings back memories of my small shop days. Best thing I liked about my 1 car shop was, didn't have to go far to get to another tool. I too noticed the green machine. I have a SS I found it to be very usable tool for the small shop. A little more dinking around but not a bad tool at all. And they build them here in the USA. Only problem with SS is they have very expensive accessories. Haven't been on the SS forum in a long time. Enjoy your shop, looks cozy.

How cool to see a SS in a forum other that the 3 dedicated to SS owners. Nice shop, what size is it?

May the grain be ever in your favor.

Thanks for the compliments. The shop is about 10' x 20' with the 1/3 closest to the house for the little mrs'. stuff. There is also a full length of shelves down the left side. I try to build all of my cabinets, etc. with casters so I can push stuff outside when the Western Washington weather allows. Dave, I really like the G0555. I am having a little difficulty with the ShopFox base though. -Derek
