What a great example of making everything fit into a small space.  I will keep a bookmark on this page in the event our next house does not have the same basement space our current house does.

Well Done!

Nice shop. Bummer that what appears to be the door is fairly open to the elements. Hope that is in the todo list so the tools stay nice and cozy.

Very nice, you have me beat by 11 feet, and I can see where it is to my advantage. Every foot or inch or meter is precious.

Great space utilization.  I'm embarrassed that I complain about my 350 sq. feet. :)

Thanks for the pictures.

I thought I was weird for wanting a Festool CT Midi in addition to the Fein Turbo II; since I rarely need two dust extractors.

I need the MIDI X 2 as one is 110V and the other is 240V, as the majority of my tools are 110V. Blame our stupid site rules, however the DF700 and ETS-EC150 are 240V only along with the majority of the sanders. I didn't want to have to manually switch power supplies and extraction constantly.

Of course that decision was made easier due to the fact that one of my nearby retailers had a MIDI and RTS bundle for £480, couldn't really pass that up.

...

Ah, that makes sense.

My thinking is the CT Midi comes with a 20A rated power cord that would allow me to run a saw through the switched plug on the machine.  The Fein Turbo II has a 15A rated power cord and the switched plug on the machine is rated for 6A; sufficient for sanders but not enough for a saw.

You'd have more room if you guys didn't have those giant plugs.  [tongue]

Nice layout though!  What sort of work do you mostly do?

I know!!!

Bread and butter income is from shopfitting, hence the proliferation of giant plugged tools. I have been doing cabinetry on the side now for about 3 yrs which is slowly growing. There seems to be a decent domestic market for custom builds and finding extra storage solutions where on off the shelf solution won't suffice.
