Setting it Up

DCP_0811.jpg (570344 bytes)On the East wall I have a workbench with a mechanics vise and my grinders. Beside that is the 60's era Craftsman radial arm saw on the cabinet I built for it. On the right is my Grizzly 20" planer.
DCP_0812.jpg (614957 bytes)Beside the planer is the Delta 18/36" drum sander and then the Grizzly 16" band saw.
DCP_0813.jpg (620557 bytes)Next to the band saw is the 1 1/2 hp Grizzly shaper. Above the shaper is my Craftsman router table. Then is my source of winter heat a wood furnace.  Beside the furnace is my Grizzly belt/disk sander and in the corner is a cyclone based on Bill Pentz design. There are 1-6", 7-5" and 6-4" drops in the shop.
DCP_0970.jpg (547760 bytes)On the South wall is my 14" Grizzly drill press. The workbench has 6 drawers and below them are shelves that hold my Grizzly mortiser, Dremel scroll saw, 12.5" Delta planer, and Delta BOSS.

For a dedicated shop that I have always wanted, I am going to be adding on to the back of the garage.  My plans are here and I would appreciate any comments you may have.
