Don't forget to use your <tap, tap> Pittsburgh Safety Glasses when
working in the shop.

I have to agree. If I was building a workshop, I'd pick and choose
every piece of big iron.
Of course, the shop owner may have received a very good sale price for
going all Powermatic, but for me, it would have to be one heck of a
deal to go that route.
Some people just like to have everything the same color.
Having the same brand can also mean better customer support, technical
advice, compatibility of parts and the best discounts.
In the case of this shop, my guess is the owner is very anal about
everything looking the same and looking perfectly new and clean.
That would be a good possibility too as IMHO with that much equipment
1,000 sq feet would be entirely too small for a real money making shop.
And I think the last place I would put the DC is up stairs, I would
not want to be lugging two bags down stairs when it filled.
AND the DC is not Powermatic!
Still it is a great place for some one like me! LOL
Did any one see any Festool???
No infeed/outfeed tables. Nothing there for personal use, especially
no hand tools. Yup. Some kind of demo setup. I wonder if it and the
shop is worth the $175,000 (is that amount right?) that they are
asking for it? Wonder if anyone is looking to buy it all?
Might be interesting to watch if there's any interest.
Condo... I saw that and kinda laugh... In Texas that building would be
a rented small business location or storage facility.
We generally consider condos to be where you live, a step above an
Usually condo means you own the building/apartment, but not the land
it's on, which is owned by someone else, or the community, that tells
you what color you are allowed to paint "your" condo. Generally, you
could furnish it with whatever color tools you want, but you gotta read
the fine print, otherwise you might end up with everything being god
awful green, particularly if Leon was in charge:-)

I'm thinking that either the owner is looking for an edge to move an
alligator property, so he staged the shop (dust collector in the loft
as far as possible from a door...?), or there's a tool dealer going in
on the deal with the owner.
With that setup they could just rent the shop out by the day and
probably still make money. Plenty of home woodworkers would love to
play with that stuff even if it was only once in a while. Maybe he
should go co-op in his condo? ;)

According to the results of additional investigation by someone here,
the shop was purchased by some Powermatic execs. as a gift for the
And, just to add a twist to the debacle, the CEO of Powermatic
apparently is not a woodworker. So, they're trying to sell it off.
