with that little dust collector you have enough to keep that area dust free?

what about dust when you are routing?

-Derek

The DC worked fine in my old shop.

I clean up the dust after routing, or hook up a shopvac to the router.

Howbout some more details about that big-ass edge sander thing?

It's a Strike 6x99" edgesander. The belt can tilt horizontally. It also has an oscilating feature, but it was crap so I disengaged it.

Nice looking shop! Kinda looks like your Drill Press, Bandsaw and Drum Sander are kinda close to walls. Do you have them set up so the can be rolled away for better working clearance or do you have enough space to run the in place? I have to have mine set away from walls because I didn't set them up with casters yet.

BTW: I have been thinking about a large belt. Do you get a lot of use out of it? Maybe you could tell me what features to watch for when I pick one up.

Peace, Rich

The clearance has never bothered me on the DP & BS (I kept the same setup as my last shop). The thicknesser I never use, it's just stowed away right now.

I get tons of use out of it. It's pretty much replaced my 4x36. Features I would look for are the platen size, which will be related to belt size. Mine is probably the largest that can run off 110VAC, at 99" with a platen of mayeb 33" (I don't recall). Also look for an end table for the idle drum. I've seen some that don't include that.

Mine also has a lame oscilating feature. The motor is built on a pivoting point with an offset low gear ratio motor built onto the end of the motor and attatched to the frame. It basically 'wiggles' the motor side to side, which causes the belt the run up & down, though the belt moves more nearer the drive drum, and causes the idle drum to move in & out. I disabled it the day I got the sander. I'd say look out for that, as I didn't find it to be a feature worth paying any extra money for as you can't use the idle drum for sanding anything.

Anything else you want to know about it?

Looks like a finished room inside a big warehouse, then I noticed a mannequin torso thru one of the windows? :D

Did you move, or just move your shop to another location?

Looks cozy! B)

It's a finished room upstairs at my work, which is a warehouse. I just moved the shop. I have no idea what you mean by the mannequin... :D
