PaPa Larry's Shop in Georgia
Feb 16th, 2015 at 3:06pm
 
Moved back from to Georgia from Florida about 3 years ago. Shop in Florida was one bay of a three car garage with everything on rollers. New house had an unfinished basement (one outlet and six light bulbs) and allowed me to start from scratch. Constructed or modified stud walls, wired 110/220 as required, insulated, installed drywall, lighting, and drop ceiling. Office and drafting table in with mechanicals. Display room and 1/2 bath. Very efficient cyclone dust collecting system installed. Floor is covered with interlocking foam mats. Easy to clean.

Larry,

Your shop is awesome! When we were over there it was as clean as a hospital operating room. Hard to believe you produce as much as you do without a spec of sawdust!  Thumbs Up Thumbs Up Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

I am the maid. Each tool is connected to the vacuum system, but this only grabs the fine stuff. Ex Navy, which is part of the clean-up mantra. Made a deal with the wife on not dragging the dirt upstairs. When turning I am usually standing I a mound of wood shavings. Retired from the semiconductor industry, worked in clean rooms. One spec of dust could cost millions, guess that carried over.

Thanks for all the positive replies. Vacuum system is built around a Clearvue 5 hp cyclone. Main lines are 6" and 4" drops to the individual tools except the tables saw and sliding compound mitre saw that are 6". Each tool is connected with a gate that is wired to turn the cyclone on when opened.

Since everyone asked/commented, the shop does get used.
