Soon to be relocating, now to plan the new shop layout.

Will be relocating a couple hundred miles to be nearer grandkids, woohoo! The new shop will in a 24x26 detached garage. Kind of like a clean slate from a work layout point of view. May need to upgrade power to 220 but that's no problem, will know more after possession when we get the keys.
I may be without a machine to make shavings for a short time.

Sounds exciting Bert.  It's fun to think about perfecting the layout.  Smiley

Congrats Bert!

I'd be in seventh heaven if I had a shop that size. Thumbs Up

Bert, I hate to rain on your parade, but, doesn't getting that much space just make it that much harder to heat in the winter time?

I have used Cal Cana IR heaters in my last two garages, with great success. IR doesn't heat the air it heats objects, the floor makes a great heat sink. I switch the thermostat so it only comes on when I want it to, like Sat morning while having morning coffe, the tools warm up quickly. Great Technogy. No flame in the shop and no force air fan blowing stuff around. I duct combustion air in from outside and the exhaust is also vented back outside, this means that air in the room doesn't get sucked out by natural draft making this heating system quite a bit more efficient. It also great for curing projects as the objects stay warm even if the air is cool. I was turning comfortably at -25C with the doors open, sweet.

Just a suggestion: go onto Grizzley website to their shop layout and do some pre-planning. It is fun to test drive several layouts.

Hey Bert, are the CAL CANA heaters expensive ?  Im in a space similar in size to yours( 24x24)  and am not really crazy for the  for the Princess auto Mr Heater that is in there now. How do the Cal Cana heaters compare in price ?

Thanks

It took two technicians a full day to mount the unit,  do the gas tie-in and testing, and install receptacle to plug the unit into. It may be best to Check with a local gas fitter contractor to get a quote.
