Idea Shop 2000
16 Additional Views
The shop's south wall contains a mobile, swivel-topped cabinet housing a small planer and belt/disc sander. Next to it, there's a lift-up scrollsaw stand and cabinet. The wall cabinets, featuring a hanging system of mating beveled strips, easily relocate if needed. Flexible hose connects the sander and/or the planer to the main dust-collection system.
This corner of the shop is the home of the dust collector and the electronic blast-gate control (the green box in the photo); a fold-up finishing center with exhaust; and the bandsaw, with the heat/air-conditioning pump above it. The mitersaw can be used tucked against the wall as shown. Or, it can be wheeled outdoors and the extensions raised to crosscut long stock.
A drill press, complete with a shop-built dust-collection collar and auxillary table (Issue #86, February 1996) stands in the corner. A cabinet holding bits and other accessories hangs nearby. Close by, too, is a hanging clamp rack, one of several in varying sizes throughout the shop. The jointer, on its mobile base, stands ready for use. Above it, a particulate filter removes fine dust from the air.
