Richard your dream shop is so darn beautiful it looks like a doctor's office. So I will have to call you the Wood Doctor. So you have been officially nicknamed by a Mississippian. There is so much honor in that, that I doubt it will mean anything to anybody.(chuckle!) Have your secretary set up appointments for turning some beauties soon! smiley=lolk.gif


Thanks, smiley=dankk2.gif Breck! Its a very big honor  smiley=thumbsup.gifand I accept with the upmost gratitude.  I even changed my signature to celebrate the occasion.  Grin smiley=lolk.gif

Man your shop is beautiful. Your quality of workmanship is impressive.  Can't wait to see it completely done. I'm drooling over our new bandsaw. I just about through my old bandsaw out the door the other day.

Wood Doc, all I know is that if that PM bandsaw works as good as the PM 3520b lathe it truly must be incredible. I'm like bill I have seen a super model of bandsaws and now mine is looking like junk. Best of luck my friend!  smilies=bowdown

That appears to be a really nice shop. It must be exciting for you! I am new to this forum, but have a couple of comments if it is not too late.

I would vent the dust collection room outside with a dryer wall vent and skip the filtration for a return air. You don't want any of that air... And keeping those filters clean will empty the bank.

A powerful exhaust fan is a good idea too. You can't get too much fresh air in a shop.

You will enjoy that shop. Please post more pics when the rest of the tools are in it!

Dean, the return air is necessary when you have an air conditioned or heated shop.  I know of one that had to relocate the DC back inside because they couldn't get the shop temp below 95F in the summer if the DC was running.  It would pull more than half of the air from the shop every 5 minutes, and the A/C unit could not keep up.

Jim is correct.  Also, I'm using 2 micron filters on the dust collector---not the 30 micron bags.  They're tight enough to help clean the air in the shop and with the filtered return, it will catch even more dust.

Richard, we were beginning to wonder if you had fallen the rest of the way into the vortex and couldn't come up to the computer anymore.  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Grin Grin

Still on earth, but by a thread.  Work has been rather all time consuming and a lot of travel lately.  Just got back in tonight and have to head back out again next week.  I'm hoping to catch up on things this weekend.

Wish me luck!!!

I would recommend that you consider how you are going to install equipment before you put up any walls. My lathe weighed over 500 lb delivered and was a bear to get into my back garage . What about a jointer, planer, table saw etc. The best of these are ALL heavy. It would be nice to have the double doors on the side where a truck could back up and drop off heavy objects.

He doesn't have access to the sides, and he does have a double door in the rear.

Hi Mike!

Work has been a pain--and looks like it will continue to do so.  But some things are happening with the shop.  I was able to get the cabinets and counter top in.  Most of the equipment is moved over now and the dust collection is up and running well. I was also able to get the air filter set up and operational.  I'm hoping that I'll be able to get a new grinding station set up and working tonight.  At least that's the plan!  LOL
