Neat, I always admire someone who can stay organized in such a small space and still get some work done. No pics for me either, but feel free to check out my blog on my 1972 craftsman restoration. Sawkerf, I will definitely be adding an out-feed table, thank you it completely slipped my mind. Richgreer, Unfortunately because of the size of my garage the whole system would have to be able to pivot 90 degrees from its storage place against the wall. Silvo,I too work in my garage and needed to be able to roll my saw out of the way when I’m not using it. You and I are battling the same issues… using the garage as a shop and a place to park vehicles.
So after looking around I’ve decided that maybe there are some better options out there that I would like to try instead to get the most bang for my space.
The entire thing will be mounted to a 50-030 Heavy-Duty Mobile Base for Table Saw I am trying to use more plywood than board except in regards to the tail vise. I am going to render a right hand setup with the cabinet flush with the face of the tablesaw fence rail guide. I realized that earlier and I kinda have just settle on the base because I couldn’t find any other options that would work.
I looked into have 6 dual locking swivel casters and perhaps some floor locks to make sure it didn’t move. Before you pick up those woodworking tools, take the time to ensure your safety in the shop!

I felt it only right that I finish the garage and use it as that is what he would have wanted. My mother in law has given me full rein of the garage and how I want to finish out the inside. Finish electrical.(add more sockets, some 220v sockets, more lighting, garage door opener wiring, switched socket for air scrubber with timer, wiring for DC blast gates. I haven't finished the garage side layout yet but it will have three 3' metal cabinets, a 5' wood cabinet, a beverage fridge, parts washer, 15' of workbench with cabinets above, sandblasting cabinet, and all the usual garage stuff.

This will be somewhat of a slow build as I work 50 hours a week have a 4 and 6 yr old boys and all the family stuff that comes with it. As soon as the garage side is done I plan to start a frame off restoration on the 64' Chevy stepside you see in the photos.
Because my fence rail is so long it seems to be a waste to not use the space for something other than just a plane for my material to slide across.
I only have a space 36” deep to be able to store the unit, so I am forced to store it perpendicular to how I would use it.
I hot linked them instead of posting them in the thread because when I did they came out huge and you could only see one tenth of the total picture. I was worried about the fence rail guide marring the work if I where to use a leg vise from the front.
My insomnia is coming to an end so I think I am going to try to get some sleep the sun is coming up. I would much prefer a base the can move in any direction but most bases are designed for the use of a just a single leaf and no drawers. The steel I can understand but the floor locks are nothing more than a horizontal toggle clamp.

I am trying to think of everything I might need in the future as far as wiring so I can install it now before the walls are finished. Sounds like another great man who started his dream late and then wasted time to CA therapy - much like my friend and neighbor. I have done alot of the rewiring in the garage but as it is very boring didn't take any pictures. I made all the false drawer fronts, got them sanded and put the first coat of stain on them. It looks as though there is still a bit of room inside to do some winter work on smaller, bench-top type of projects. I can not afford the space for both workbench and a table saw on the one wall, so I am going to attempt to combine them both. Finding the appropriate distance for a miter track and the tail vise is going to take some tweaking. The other downside to the current setup is that I am right handed and all of the controls are on the left-side as I work.

I will come back and edit this later as I sure that most of it is in sleep deprived gibberish. I only payed 380 for the saw so it kinda hard for me to justify spending almost double that on a base.

It has been sitting outside for the last 10 years and I got some rolling tires on it and got the engine running so I can move it around at least. My garage floor is really uneven, it almost seems like someone played a racket ball match on it right after it was poured. I just figured instead of putting drawers and cabinets under the support table I make it a workbench. I will most likely get the lumber form an actual supplier to save me the time of laminating a billion boards. In the center I would also like to put some removable tool trays that can be covered when not in use.
After battling the cancer for a year he got a brain tumor and tragically we lost him this past September. It doesn’t really matter but I want the right hand vise because this workbench is only a temp option until I move.

I felt the room was too small to do anything with so I tore it down and built a new wall dividing the garage into two spaces. The angled cut on the left corner above is to allow room to get into the storage space when the bench is inside it. This left hand setup is most likely going to be irritating at first but I may just get use to it.
