Default Doyle's work shop

I shall attempt to post photos of my work shop. I am in the middle of installing the dust collection system, as seen in the photos. Some connection parts are on back order. (never fails) The shop is 15 X 23 and like clamps - it is never enough room or not enough clamps.
All of my machines, tool boxes etc. are on castors. Either attached directly, or sitting on a base with wheels. I can move the machines around to fit what I am working on. The planer under the work bench is on rollers and swings out and is in direct line with the shop door. If need be I can open the door and plane longer boards.
Hope this post works.
Take care
Doyle

Hi Doyle.... Bob here

That is a grand looking shop you have. I really like the little cabinet you made for the Tormek accessories. I may have to borrow that idea for my own use. Awesome router table also.

Thanks for taking the time to share the pictures.

Nice layout Doyle, it looks like a Norm Router table. I built his second version. I was thinking of changing the table top. I'm thinking T tracks would work better for the fence. Plus I can remove it easier with a track system.

Good looking set up there Doyle. That sander was the first sander I had... bought it back in the late 80's and used the hell out of it. It was a good one. How do you like that bandsaw? They sold a lot of that design .. some guys hated them others loved them. Real nice set up Doyle and thanks for the photos.

If I were to build another cabinet, I would have the doors swing out. in this one they slide left and right. I am taking a liking to clear plastic doors - able to see whats inside.
Take care

I like T tracks - they work well with jigs.

Thanks Corey.
The sander I bought in the early 80's, have used the heck out of it. Don't like the cost of belts.
I like the bandsaw. It is the only one I have ever had. It is a boo-ba-loo cleaning the inside. Too many holes, to get a good suction going on the sawdust is impossible. I find I am limited on 80 inch blades for it.
Good saw cut many board feet with it.
Take care
Doyle

Excellent Doyle. Hey Bob N has better eyes than me. I didn't see the Tormek? Nice lathe as well.... beats the heck out of my little red PSI

By the way Doyle, you become one of our regulars... need more guys like you and thanks for your participation. Looking forward to some projects from you now that you got the photos figured out

Nicely organied Doyle. I really like the Plano organizers, I have 3 of them myself, two filled with small stainless fasteners and one full of key blanks and automotive lock hardware. I need about double the space I have to be able to organize my shop like that, too many goodies in too small an area.

That's quite a set-up Doyle, you sure have filled it with machinery, my shed is smaller at 15' x 20' and I too have everything on casters. What sort of projects do you go in for?
