Great looking shop Gary. Thanks for sharing it with us. One question though, you're obviously all about metalwork so, whats the scrollsaw for? Don't get me wrong, I love 'em myself. It was the first machine that my dad let me use in his shop as a kid.

That is a nice looking setup that you have there Gary. It reminds me of mine. Don't let the neatness comments get to you. I am always told that a neat shop is the sign of a cluttered mind. I hate working in a mess. I generally clean as I go and at least once a day. It looks like you have some nice tools to work with. And I especially like the pattern on the drapes. That adds a nice touch. just kidding. Mike.

I don't know about Gary (Nice shop by the way!!!), but I use my scroll saw to make hardboard patterns for plasma cut-outs, among other things.

The scroll saw belongs to the wife along with the table saw and the 13inch planer and the belt sander and the kobalt blue roll away tool box.

Had to have something to cover the windows to keep nosey on lookers from getting shot in the middle of the night.
