    Shop Layout Help

    No room in the utility closet unfortunately. For now it is going to have to take up space in the shop. Might be able to eventually move it on the other side of the 22' wall, but have to wait and see on that one.

    Shop Layout Help

    I remeasured some things and messed around with grizzly's tool for a while and came up with 2 mostly similar designs. Only difference is positioning of Dust collector, work bench and 3d printer station get swapped around. Planer, drill press, band saw and possible jointer would all be on mobile bases. The objects behind the right entrance door wouldn't be there, after the drill press the wall ends and opens into another space. Any thoughts?

    Shop Layout Help

    The double doors are the entry point into the shop, the single door is to a large utility closet. So far I have mainly been building small furniture and other various small woodworking projects. At least some, if not all materials will get stored down there.
  4. Getting ready to frame out my basement shop area and run electricity. I assume the shop will kind of evolve over time, but looking for suggestions on a good starting point to setting up a layout to help with placement of electrical, etc. The attached image shows the area I am working with. There is a single support post on the right side and also a door in the lower left that is missing from the image. My initial plan was to put cabinets, a miter saw station and a router table along the long left wall. Beyond that not really sure what is the best way to set things up. I have a table saw, jointer, lunch box planer, workbench and a laguna p flux dust collector to arrange. In the future will likely be adding a band saw and a drill press. In addition, I would also like to setup a small(~3-4ft) desk for my 3D printer somewhere. Any thoughts, tip or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  5. Yeah, right now I am trying to decide between the Oneida v3000 and the Laguna P Flux 3HP.
  6. Looks like the Oneida v3000 is another option could look into coming in at 88".
  7. Any reference if the p flux is louder than normal for dust collection? I realise they aren't quiet in general, but would prefer to take a quieter option if one exists since it is in the house.
  8. How does venting outside effect heat in the house?
  9. Yeah, I looked at some of the short setups that were proposed for ClearVue and they seemed to be awkward and space consuming. I will in all likelihood be in this basement shop for a long time to come.
  10. Yeah, I understand that, just curious if the P Flux 2 or 3 would be sufficient or if there is something else I should be looking at.
  11. I doubt I would ever use more than one machine at a time. Just don't want to drag a machine around the shop.
  12. I have been getting my basement shop(roughly 25' X 20') setup in my house and it is in desperate need of some real dust collection. Currently, I am getting by with a shop vac and a Jet air cleaner but I am adding a Dewalt lunch box planer and hopefully a 6-8" jointer soon. I am hoping to only buy a dust collector once, so I am trying to find something that will keep up as I expand my tools(table saw, router table, miter saw, planer, jointer & bandsaw). I would prefer to at least setup 1 or 2 main trunks that all or most of my machines are permanently hooked up to rather than dragging something around I am mainly limited by my ceiling height(90 inches). Currently, I have been looking at the Laguna P Flux line which would fit with my low ceilings, not sure if the 2HP or 3HP would be sufficient for my needs. Curious to hear if anyone has any thoughts on the P Flux or if there are any better options out there that I should consider. Thanks!
  13. Thanks for the input. I don't think I would be using this miter saw for a lot of rough work. Main uses would be trim and woodworking/furniture building. I will be hanging on to my 10" miter saw for construction work, possibly use the new saw occasionally if capacity becomes an issue.
  14. I don't think I would buy the CT for just the miter saw, but rather if I decided to buy more Festool tools. Dust collection is still very uncertain, completely new shop and I will probably want to add a real dust collector for larger tools.
  15. Marc reviewed the Bosch Glide? I was considering getting the CT26 along with the Kapex if I were to go that route, I would need to purchase an additional hose?
