Hi all

I have not been on here for ages so hi one and all.

Anyway im a joiner and have just got my first shop. I have posted some pictures on a link so you know what it looks like.

Its 7m x 7m

In time i want to get a:
Table saw (cutting 8x4')
Router table
Bandsaw
Morticer
Planer/thicknesser

Obviously i want to try and plan out to get all these in the workshop so after a bit of advise of size needed for the above machines so i can put them in my workshop plan. Any opinions really welcome and thanks

There's a shop design tool (free) available for download off the web - called something like 'easyshop' - i used to have it, but got rid after it had done all i asked of it (although probably downloading again soon for new shop)...you can get it from here - this isn't where I originally got it from, but I couldn't find the proper place. Look for 'easyshop shop designer'

Actually, having re-read your message, you're looking for advice on sizes of machinery...but anyway, the above tool is a goodie to have for anyone designing a new shop.

My God....... look at all that space....... :shock:

Coggy... obviously tool footprints will change with different types and manufacturers... so many to choose from...

That said, my router table has a 3x2 ft footprint.. top overhangs 2" on all 4 sides. The DC spout in back means that when connected to the DC I need to give it about a foot of clearence to the nearest wall to allow for the hose...
