    Here's some updated pictures of the shop. I've had a few new tool additions (including a very fine Kapex).

    Wow, that's clean.

    I've never seem a mat like that ... I assume that it goes under the car? Do you have a car in there a lot?

    The bikes seem awkward to get at, squirreled away in the corner like that?

    I'm curious, as well, about the TS arrangement. So many folks put their TS so that you can do long rips, which would be at right angles to the way you have it. Does your work not require much in the way of long rips? Or do you pivot it if needed? I don't see a mobile base.

    best,

    Jim - Thanks! I'm in-between projects today and needed to take shop pictures for our woodworking club, so I thought I would hit two birds with one stone here.

    Art - The mat is called a "Car Pad". It is a vinyl mat with a garden hose edge which traps water and dirt. You just drag it outside and hose it off. In the winter, my wife likes to park her car in the warm garage, so all of the "car tartar" snow and ice melt off the car and the water collects in the mat. When she leaves, I get to take my wet/dry shop vac to it and suck up the water. It also raises the humidity level in the shop, so I run a dehumidifier out there during the winter. Unfortunately, there's little wiggle room with this arrangement (wifey), so I just have to deal with it.

    Surprisingly, the bikes are easy to get down and they don't get in the way either. Perfect location for them.

    The PM2000 has an integrated mobile base which lowers casters via the tilt wheel on the saw. I just swing it 180 degrees into the car bay and can rip 16 ft. lengths if need be. The DC and power follow along.

    Your shop turned out great!! Thanks for the pictures. They gave me a few ideas for mine -- that is if the county ever issues a permit.
