    Well Patrick, feel that I'm more of a 'tool collector' than a woodworker - Dave

    P.S. now should I show my router bit collection?

    That's okay Dave, but I'm sure it's quite impressive.

    RadDave, a man after my own heart, wow. Looks like you have ample space for your shop. I was fortunate when I acquired my SS it came with bandsaw, jointer, shaper and other stuff. It was my first power tool, but after using it for a while the table saw function left it a little to be desired. So I bough my first Craftsmen table saw but still wanted the SS for it’s other useful functions. I started collecting old hand tools like brace & bits,hand planes etc from local flee/garage sales.

    My PBS just started carrying The Woodrights Shop with Roy Underhill who uses nothing but old hand tools and its amazing to see how early craftsman built thing with those tools.

    I've been watching Roy's show for years (started here in NC PBS) - love his trips to nearby places, e.g. Jefferson's Poplar Forest near Lynchburg, VA (we've visited twice now and will return, an ongoing restoration) - and is amazing that old time furniture making involved plenty of hand tools (the variety of molding planes astounds) - love to carefully look at antiques in museums - Old Salem's MESDA in my home town is a great place to see plenty of old furniture and period rooms.

    Also, assume that you've watched Norm Abram's New Yankee Workshop - of course, he was associated w/ This Old House, and his pals w/ Ask This Old House, another favorite of mine - also, the Woodsmith Shop are fun to watch (I own the 10-DVD box set shown below). Could go on w/ other videos in my collection, but.... Looking forward to seeing future pics of your shop in progress! Dave

    RadDaveAbsolutely, every Saturday morning I tape all these shows and enjoy with coffee on Sunday. We just lost on PBS down here (out of Tampa) Scott Phillips on The American Woodshop and gained the The Woodrights Shop which I use to get years ago. I do miss Scott Phillips because over the last year on The American Woodshop Scott was doing a lot of turning projects which was educational and a joy to watch and learn stuff. On the Woodsmith Shop I have a nice collection of old monthly magazines I use to get and cds with projects and also love to watch. They just changed their format and almost all new personnel. I get their weekly e-tips too, which has some good tips to save but with that also some of their advertising partners adds. I may have to try to talk the wife into visiting Mesda some day, looks like I could spend some time there.

    yeahhhh...might need to look at my signature
    Nice!! My mother's side of the family came from a line of woodworkers/crafters. It's always fascinated me since I was little. One of my dreams is to move to an area that allows me to have my own shop big enough for wood working and machinery. One day lol

    Thanks iggibar for comment. At 66, this is after almost 40 years of remodeling, hobby stuff and collecting some that I got my first real shop/man cave, but it was worth the wait.

    RadDave, thanks for comment. I should have plenty of room now for hobby stuff. For me it’s like I hit the lottery and couldn’t be happier. Now I have to sort through paperwork & plans that I stock piled. Still debating on dust collection, from my old setup I had blast gates that were 4” on one side and 2 1/2” on other with hoses for equipment which made walking around easier but probably not as efficient as if everything was 4” but not being a business I may keep it and just run a 4” trunk down the wall and use what I have. I used 4” tee’s for drops but I’ve learned that wye’s are the proper way due to being more efficient.

    Very nice, Kenny. I wouldn't mind having a setup like that.

    Don't forget that the air velocity with smaller diameters can have quite a dramatic and often positive effect, especially on "capture velocity". Maybe solicit the thoughts or designs of a good HVAC or sheet metal duct tradesman who's well versed in airflow design.

    Patrick, thanks for the comment and suggestion. Haven’t much experience with dust collection except for a few articles I have read. I must say it hasn’t worked too bad in the past as is but can’t remember who or where I heard or read that I’d be better off with 4” drops. Even the tee’s I used worked fine but again I read that the preferred joint should be with a wye. Will have to read up some more about this.
