That's so far out of reach for me it's not even funny.
I have a $100 garage shop. Tools cost $100.
(I splurged on the plainer. but it has paid for itself manby times over)
Double car garage. (we have a storage shed for the garden toys)
That's my so called shop.
a small table saw, miter chop saw, small band saw, drill press, and
10 or 12 bags of hand tools sorted by type.
No. That's for a pro shop.
A saw like that, you build a shop around it.
And its' friends.
"Sure. An arm, a leg, and only a tenspot more for larger models!"
quoth the cheap bastid.
To use fear as the friend it is, we must retrain and reprogram ourselves...
We must persistently and convincingly tell ourselves that the fear is
here--with its gift of energy and heightened awareness--so we can do our
best and learn the most in the new situation.

Oh, 600 lb is just a baby for cast iron... :)
Check on some of the vintage beasties...
I meant to refer to NEW big iron and the 80" cast iron top, then there
is this at 2000 lbs.
But for only 1000 lbs a 16" TS
I'm partial to OLDer the better big iron meself...wish had the 3PH power
and a shop area that could handle it. Miss the access had in VA,
In particular since I do have the RAS that is 16" I don't lack for saw
capacity but I pine for a 16" or larger jointer in the worstest way...
Of course, 20+" would be even better... :)
Oh, yes, they are....I just don't have the floor space anywhere that has
the necessary clearance and headroom that has the floor that will hold
'em up...the old barn is big but very little actual open space what w/
the support partitions, stalls, etc., and it's very low headroom as as
much height as possible was put into the hayloft space.
It, while it would make a wonderful working space being almost
completely open and essentially no limit up, would take a tremendous
amount of work to shore up to support such a point load not to mention
the problem of then needing a freight elevator that would handle stuff,
etc., etc., etc., ... Believe me, I've thought a lot about how kewl it
would be to open a larger dormer for the purpose and if I were 30 yr or
so younger, maybe...
