Amazon Affiliate Links for Shop Equipment

These are items I use all the time in the shop that can be purchased on amazon.  By going through my link, you will not pay any more for the items, but I get a little commission on what you buy.  That helps me keep finding new products to recommend and help make life easier.

3M Full Facepiece Reusable Respirator 6800 (Amazon)

This is the respirator I wear everyday.  Filters are widely available and so are parts that deteriorate over time.  The only problem I have had is the rubber strapping I feel like wears out quickly and has to be replaced.

3M P100 Respirator Cartridge/Filter 60926 (Amazon)

These are the filters I use on my respirator.  They are a little more expensive than others, but they completely eliminate the G10 smell when grinding for prolonged periods.   I think they are worth the extra expense.

Oneida Air Systems Dust Deputy Deluxe All Clear Cyclone Kit (Amazon)

I purchase this cyclone kit for my sandblaster and it has been awesome.  It was super easy to put together and helps to keep the cabinet so very clear so you can see what you are working on.

JET 12-Inch Variable-Speed Benchtop Drill Press (Amazon)

I have 2 of these bench top drill presses in my shop.  Having the variable speed option, I actually adjust the speed of my bit accordingly since it is so fast to change speeds.  On my larger Jet floor standing drill press, it pretty much stays on one speed because changing the belts around is a big pain.  If you get a variable speed drill press, I don’t think you will regret the decision.

Yost Vises 750-DI Multi-Jaw Rotating Vise (Amazon)

I purchased one of these vises in 2016 and it has been one of my biggest go to tools!  I love that it has a wide jaw, it is able to spin for different angles, and hold large round tube when needed.  A great vise for someone starting out that doesn’t brake the bank too bad for how much steel is there.

HORUSDY Vise Jaws, 4.5″ Magnetic Retention Vice Jaw Pads, Universal Vise Soft Jaws (Amazon)

I have not found a 5″ version of these that is made to this quality.  These are a harder urethane material that is great for holding all sorts of things.

Barrina LED Shop Light, 8FT 72W 9000LM 5000K (Amazon)

I have 20 of these 8ft lights in my workshop.  They are really easy to mount, and hook up to outlets or even directly hooking them up.

Bernzomatic Trigger Start Torch (Amazon)

I use this for all sorts of things around the house, soldering copper pipe to torching carbide straightening hammer handles.  This thing is a must for the shop!

California Air Tools 15020C Ultra Quiet & Oil-Free 2.0 Hp 15.0 gallon Steel Tank Air Compressor (Amazon)

This little air compressor is amazing in a small workshop.  When it says “Ultra Quiet” it is really amazing how much quieter it is compared to other compressors.  I love the horizontal one because I can have it under my workbench and it be fine.

BLACK+DECKER Level Tool (BDSL10), Red & Black, 36-Inch (Amazon)

If you have a shop, the chances of needing to mount something to the wall is pretty high.  This level is great with having sliders to mark your locations.

Huepar 3 x 360 Green Beam 3D Laser Level (Amazon)

For times when you need to mark something longer than a standard level can do, this is a great tool!

Drill Doctor – DD750X 750X Drill Bit Sharpener (Amazon)

Sharpening small drill bits is a pain, this helps to make them perfect!  The bits we use are expensive, get the most you can out of them!

Makita BO5041K 5″ Random Orbit Sander (Amazon)

I use this all the time for prepping larger sheets of liner material and sheet goods.  It is also my go to sander when doing woodworking projects in the shop too.

MICROJIG GRR-RIPPER ZP9-B2S2 Zeroplay Miter Bar 2 Piece (Amazon)

If you ever decide to make a cross cut sled, do yourself a favor and just get this kit!

321 Stainless Steel Tool Wrap | Heat Treat Foil 20″ x .002″ x 50′ (Amazon)

Use this on wrapping stainless steel knives when heat treating under 2000°F.
