My Shed, workshop and home for all my tools...

My Shed is tiny, and is packed with all my tools.  I actually have two workspaces.  The Shed for woodworking and the garage for oily metalworking.  I like to keep the two speperate.

The tools I use are mainly hobby tools that I have bought and acquired over the years:

My Shed

Its probably big in terms of a garden shed at 12x8, but is quite small for a workshop.  But I love it to bits.  Its quite old now and has been upgraded with a metal roof and has been given waterproof membrane and then cladded externally with fence boards.  It has multiple electrical outlets and good lighting.

BandSaw - Lumber Jack BS254

Probably my favourite and most used tool in my shed.  Its great for cutting all sorts of wood and shapes.  I recently upgraded from a Ferm (similar to this one) to a This has a bigger cut depth at 150mm which means I can make larger highland coos.


Pillar Drill 

my next most used tool in my shed is my pillar drill.  Its a small bench mounted one.  I actually have two of these, one in the shed for wood and one in the garage for metal work (I was given this one by a neighbour).  Both are brilliant at what they do, not particularily powerful but get lots of use

Table saw - DeWalt DW745

Im still a bit afraid of this saw, but it fits into my small shed well.  Its very portable and I made a stand for it on wheels that mans it can roll under my bench when Im not using it.  

Cordless Drill - DeWalt

Where would be be without cordless drills these days. Used for drilling holes and rapidly putting in screws.  I bought this one a few years ago and it came with 2 batteries.  One battery is always on charge.  I have had a number of cordless drills and they always seem to die because of the batteries.  This one is still going strong.
