Efficient Shop Layout I

Just as in your kitchen, getting things done efficiently depends largely on shop layout. Where you position your equipment determines how workable your shop will be.

Situate your stationary power tools according to your working patterns and the shape of the space. Do allow for certain minimum passageways and areas. For guidelines, we figure on 18" to 24" walkways between benches and machinery or between stationary tools. To work between benches and equipment, rather than just walk, you need 30" to 36".

I need a garage shop lay out with air filter and dust collection. This would make my marriage life much happier.
