    I think I am going to add on to my shop / garage this spring / summer, the zoning in my area limits my choices, as I had wanted to build a free standing structure, but I think my limitations mean that I will be adding on instead. In terms of tools and projects, hmmm, I think I want to focus on some challenging furniture projects to improve my techniques and in terms of big tools maybe a drum sander or bigger dust collector.

    More space would be nice. A drum sander or a bigger dust collector would be nice tools to get.

    What kind & size of dust collector are you looking at?

    I am thinking of a 3hp 220V all in one cyclone unit, I currently have a 1.5 hp unit with a Thein baffle garbage can chip collector and I’d like some more power with a smaller footprint that is easy to clean.

    Sounds like a very good plan. Have you considered the Harvey cyclone?

    Learning to use my jointer if Grizzly ever restocks! I’ve been woodworking for 40 years and am finally purchasing some of the more expensive equipment I’ve never had before. And it seems like my dust collection system is a constantly changing thing!

    Welcome to the forum Alan. That’s a nice thing when we hit that stage in life. Enough of already taken care of that now we can indulge our little habits.

    What size jointer are you looking at getting?? Jointers are very nice tools for the work shop.

    Got one of my goals met, set up part of the woodworking shop for welding (next to the woodstove).

    I’ll sleep better when I can weld outside, but in a pinch the setup is working for now. The big shiny new fire extinguisher just inside the shop door helps also.

    Nice to hear you met one of goals. A step in the right direction.

    Congratz! I wish I felt the urge for whatever project along the years to get a welding setup. I did some in my earlier years in high school shop and on my uncle’s farm, but I never felt in my own setup and ongoing needs I needed it to compliment my endeavors.

    I was actually pretty good at welding, and enjoyed it. I still think one day I may just get into it for some valid excuse at the time. Welding is fun, and an art. I’ve got an old friend who is a welder, and I now he can bring me up to speed with what I’d need should I so decide.

    Good stuff ,
    Smart move having a good size fire extinguisher close by
    Hopefully you never have to use it

    Ok now we are into 2019. What are your Workshop goals for 2019.

    What projects you would like to do?

    What tools you would like to buy?

    What would you like to learn?

    Feel free to add more.

    I managed to get a few goals of my list. I would like to do a better job this year.

    I still need to work on getting my Workshop organized for better work flow is top on my l.

    Build a Outfeed /Assembly Table.

    Build Lathe stand and so I can get my lathe working.

    Get my new planer up and running.

    Rebuild my 2300 Beaver Band saw.

    I not sure if want to add too much more to my list as really want to get these done this year. Alot will depend on how much shop time I get.

    Here is the link for 2018 thread:

    Lets hear what your goals are for 2019.

    Old Thread Warning

    I have got one thing off Workshop Goal list so far this year.

    I got my new planer wired up and running with VFD. I ended up mounting the VFD on the planer. This way the planer can be moved around in my small shop. I am really happy with this purchase. I still have a few things I need to look at before I put it too work.

    I started pulling the bearings out of my 2300 Beaver band saw.

    That’s a worthwhile goal to have met, for sure. A woodstove in the shop has always been one of my goals, a very difficult one, it seems with all the roadblocks put up by the insurance co’s.

    Never had to do a bearing job. I honestly wouldn’t know where to start.

    Sounds like a decent job , what size and style of bearings do you have to replace Greg
    We have extra bearings around the shop , I might be able to get you some.

    When you put the new ones in remember to put the numbers facing out where you can see them. Makes the job easier the next time, even if it’s not you doing it. That way the bearings can be ordered before the saw is taken apart.
