Re: Do We Talk About Garages In Vehicles?


It happens to me and I dont even have a real shop or mezzanine. If I did, I could fill it up in no time.

Though probably not these days, as I dont really bring much home anymore if it doesn't relate to my actual work.

Junk storage is why I want this thing!

We're talking about a guy who has said out loud, "Hey, look at that cool hunk of I-Beam!" then pulled over to take the cool hunk of I-Beam home. What am I going to do with it? I don't know. Bench or something? Whatever. Shut up, it's mine.

In that case, a couple 30yd walk-ins will do, and they'really really easy to reorganize....

Don't tempt me.

I always thought it was hilarious when people got those for "storage."

Bro, who are you kidding? You and I both know ain't nothing ever coming back out of that thing. They're just an acknowledgement that you're too sentimental to get rid of your first ride on mower or that you don't have the stones to make a commitment to a brand of winter tire.
"Where should we put the tarps that are too ripped to cover anything or be generally useful?"
"Put em on top of the extra cab I bought for the Dodge. We can use the tarps for when we start the restoration in the spring, which is definitely something we're going to do... not just let all this **** just sit in here forever until our children have to parse through it all after we're dead..."

I have a chunk of #12 rebar. I will never, ever have a use for it.

Yea you always hear that you can never have too much storage!

Well i donít believe that because too much storage means too much junk!

Imo you need to have enough but not too much

Re: Do We Talk About Garages In Vehicles?


16' foot ceilings is quite high for an entire ceiling. In reality stock shouldn't be stored upright anyhow. I know everyone does it but it's much more likely to twist because the weight isn't distributed evenly. If I got to build my shop instead of moving into it, I would have used those metal scissor trusses and ran them from 10' stick framed walls with a 5 or 6 pitch. That way at the peak I've got more than enough room which is where I'm usually tossing wood around with the machinery.

My benches are all off to the side so where I need height is all in the center and 10'6" ceilings is a real bitch. I don't ever need that during assembly though just for breaking down materials. You ain't putting a table saw or planer against a wall and the jointer is pretty useless for anything over 12'.

I have a bathroom on the opposite side of of my office which is nice but it has a flat roof with 8' ceilings so it acts kind of like a mezzanine. It's useful at times but I have a tendency to put **** up there and totally forget about it. I was looking for a couple pieces of Sentences I knew I had and couldn't find the for ****. Really pissed me off. They were on top of the bathroom.

For storage of most rough lumber I would have a 16 foot overhang with open sides so I know what's there behind the shop when I walk back there. Right now I have it in a shipping container which isn't great but it's not horrible, I just can't drive lumber in, which makes it ****ty. Get yourself some long arm storage racks and store your lumber on it flat, just dedicate that to lumber.

40x40 is too small. My last one was close to that. Now mines 40x60 with out buildings and it's still not enough. Get the biggest overhead door you can find. It is nice when you have a ton of **** in the way and you can still get through.

Lastly GTFO of Jersey. I can't believe you guys are taxed extra for everything. We don't get taxed for **** here especially if the building is grandfathered in under an old Ag exemption.

Those are my meanderings if they make sense.

Re: Do We Talk About Garages In Vehicles?


Oh yeah, and plan for dust collection. A proper plan for it is so worth while to sit and think about. Add several floor sweeps and a nice slick concrete. My stupid slab is rough as all get out and I don't even want to sweep up because sawdust just sticks to it no matter what...

Re: Do We Talk About Garages In Vehicles?


I'm never going to own a dust collection system.

I don't make stuff. I just cut stuff at home sometimes then bring it to other peoples' houses.

I never considered a dust collection until recently. I , like you don't build cabinets and such, but some of the stuff I do cut up makes a lot of dust. Pvc, Boral, MDF, these really can make one consider the dust. I will likely opt for something of the Harbor Freight variety to start with, and primarily would only use it with the table saw, and maybe the router.

Dust collection would be awesome, I'm not trying to say otherwise. I just don't think it's happening. Too many other things I want first.

Use 6" PVC for dust pipe. Metal ducting sucks to work with. Look online or at an auction and you can get good dust collectors pretty cheap. That harbor freight stuff has it's cfm measured as a closed unit next to the impeller, so it doesn't give near the suction it says. Also, if you have a closed shop the filter bags don't do a whole lot of good.

Was just out there this morning cutting/routing some mdf. Dust collection is absolutely in my future.

MDF sucks. I got a door package coming up that is going to be a bunch of MDF center panels.

Getting a decent collector is worth it. I tried to get by with 2 mobile 1-3/4hp. No good. Switched to a 5hp dual and fixed piping. 3hp should really be bare minimum for bagged units.

Now I think a 7.5hp cyclone with a 15 or 16" impeller is what I really want. When I build a new shop, that's what I'm going to do.
