The sawdust box

Post  rsv1cox on Wed Oct 12, 2016 10:27 am

Tired of getting sawdust all over my garage despite vacuum assist I'm moving table saws, band saws, miter saws, and sanders into this 10X16' shed. I would think that more than a few balsa models will be constructed here in the future. Smile Frees up space for maybe another old car or two also. Smile

The trailer that delivered it is a marvel; raises, lowers, tilts, and angles. A one man operation to set it down.

I need one of those. They are rather competitively priced compared to buying a "kit" and putting it up yourself.

Will you heat it in the winter with an electric heater or similar?

You can never have enough space to work in and store things.

That is a very posh shed - I can't imagine one of those being trailered around London. I am envious of the space some of you chaps have, That would take up my entire garden!

Lot's of empty space in West Virginia Ian.  We rank about 29th in population density compared with the other 49.  No much economic opportunity here either since the demand for coal is drying up.  I remember pictures that you have posted showing your landscaping, sometimes it's quality not quantity that counts.

I have given thought to insulating it, I may, may not, still have the loft over the garage.  I do have a neat little electric heater though that might work, but some days here do not get above freezing.  That's when I long for Florida, but Florida lacks the beauty and charm of WV.

Sometimes you have to make a mess to clean one up.



I'm going to miss looking out that window and seeing nothing but a pine tree forest.

Trust me you want to insulate it even if you do not plan to heat it. If it is for equipment then the foil bubble wrap stuff is probably enough, but if you plan to work in there other than the spring or fall then you want the insulation or it will be hard to keep somewhat cool, and hard to heat.

A small window air conditioner cut into the wall will be plenty for most of the summer if you are wiring it for electricity. A kerosene or electric space heater for the winter.

Bob, Sorry, but, I could tell even before it was slid off that fancy dancy trailer.....it's too small!!   I inherited a small dual bag dust collector' along with a jointer, planer and a few hand tools when my father in law passed away. He had the neatest shop set up in the basement. He did scroll work and lots of hand made toys for the grandkids. But, no mater what he did, dust collector, filter units and exhaust fans, he could not keep Grandma from complaining about the "sawdust"  "all over the house"  So a separate enclosed building for sawing and sanding is just what you need, and should work out just fine! Please keep,us posted and post some pictures of the new set  -up.

PS: it looks to me like you will have two new Windows to look out into the pine forest from inside the new building.
