Took the opportunity to get some fresh pics and video after spending the day cleaning my shop. We built the shop 25 years ago. It's 30x40 with 10' ceilings. It was intended to be 100% automotive back then but has gone thru a few alliterations over the years. I started woodworking in 2000 and the shop has slowly morphed into what it is now. I began the machining journey a few months ago. That was cause for some rearranging. Even though it's still mostly woodworking I thought I'd share it here.


There are a ton more pics on my Flickr page at this link...

I'll begin inside with my fledgling machining area. I just got the G0752. It's just sitting on the bench. Still needs mounting/leveling but I think I'm going to like it!











More metalworking over in the automotive area...





And the woodworking area...

















Thanks for looking! Hope you enjoyed it.

Thanks! It is very nice to have space even though there is no such thing as enough.

What a terrific shop! Question: Is the mini-lathe in much use, or is it historical? Seems like your G0752 would handle everything?

That looks nice, I can only wish for that much space, currently half of a single car garage.
How much noise does that dust collection system make.

Thanks! The answer to your question is yet to be determined. I just got the G0752 a few days ago. Still in the process of cleaning, checking and getting it set up. I imagine I'll hold onto the mini one way or the other. I did have it in my gun room in the house. I use it for spinning my case trimmers. I'm contemplating moving it back in there but we'll see.

Thanks! I built several of these cyclones in different configurations and with different blowers as part of a build it yourself kit that was being marketed years ago so I've done a ton of experimentation. It's certainly not quiet. 84db @ 6'. I sacrificed some noise level for added performance. It has a 17" straight blade impeller that is very efficient but not as quiet as the less efficient reverse curved impellers.

Thanks Bob! It took my projects up a notch. Many advantages to be big, flat and level surface to build on.

Beautiful! The only change I think you need to make is to hold a yard sale for the dust pan/whisk broom hanging behind your mill. As clean as that shop is, I doubt if you'll ever need it and it's taking up precious wall space.

I'd love to chat more, but suddenly I feel compelled to get the leaf blower and clean the floor in my shop.

Regards,
Terry

Hahaha. That's how I clean. I open all the doors and fire up the back pack blower.

I don't need a big shop, I'd waste too much time in commuting to all the equipment.

Thanks Mike! I'd much rather build what I need than buy it whenever possible. Always something new going around in my head.
