I'm actually tempted to a more dremel based setup, since I really do not have space, and anything must be gathered up and stored away. Also it's unlikely I'm going to do any large scale projects here. As mentioned, that may involve rental or similar.

We have a thing called Men's sheds association here in the UK that sounds like a good idea, you can go along and use equipment and get help working on tools there  :tu:
I don't know if you have anything like this where you are Whoey  :think:

I well understand your lack of space issues, but there is still a tool solution.  You are correct.  Shopmiths are too large.  You need a Porta Shop!

That's a neat looking rig, makes you wonder why it's vintage and not still readily available.

I'm kinda tempted for a Dremel workshop, cause I have absolutely no room, but back when I did have a shed as a workshop I kinda made my own setup, one of those shopsmiths would have been perfect but I never knew of them. But what I did was make a unique table, where the center lifted out and you could attach a hand power tool to make it into a full size piece of equipment. I don't have any pics of it except me cutting a full sheet of plywood on it. But the circular saw turned into a table saw, also the jig, and the router, all on a 4' x 2' table, I also put glides and the switch was no more then a normal 3way house switch that controlled a outlet on the back but I broke the connectors on the outlet so I could put a foot switch on, so one outlet was on/off, and the other you had to turn the switch off and it put the power to the foot switch, I did find a pic of a unique setup, again uses all hand power tools and turns them into full size.

Any info on that porta shop? That looks interesting..

I'm sure my neighbours would love me having access to power tools in my office space, considering I can hear them cooing their newborn every day through the wall of our apartment...

I need to mount new tires and retaps the handlebars on my bike. I'd do it in my shop. Does this qualify??

I knew my wife was a keeper when she transitioned from calling it a knife thingy to a multi-tool.

Ok, my first project of the new year, what is it you ask? I had no clue these things even existed until I even saw one on amazon, even after seeing it I had to do research. But I liked it and kinda needed one so I set sail to the hobby desk to fig it out,

Now, if I had a little workshop with a coping saw and a barrel sander or belt sander I would have had this thing done in 5min, but I don't so I ended up using a Dremel for everything except the fine sanding and rubbing leather on the edges. Besides that all it is, is a small piece of plywood I pulled out of the basement by cutting with the sak farmer saw!

So here it is, a thumb book page holder, hey it works, I'm down with it, I'll have to try it out tonight!

As you can see in the pic they make them in all diff shapes and also in plastic, but that plastic one is very cheap and the reviews said that it breaks, yet since it's so thin you can also use it as a bookmark by flipping it and putting it in atop the book, but then again thin so it breaks. Now if it was that thick clear plastic maybe in that neon green, or layered in black with the neon green or red shaped like the one I did or something like it, that would be freaking cool! Don't we have someone on here that works with that thick plastic?
