It looks like everything is on wheels. That is a big help, if you can find a corner to roll it to while not in use. You have about as much open space as I do, very little. Shevling, hanging things from walls, ceilings, etc are all possibilities. Finding space is tough, and sometimes things have to go.

OH MY ! ! One thing I noted quickly is that all/most of the power tools are on stand which appear that they could have been made by your Grandfather. The large workbench is so unique also, love all those drawers. The large amount of wood pieces on the overhead rack: some of us would give most anything for those. So much "character" in all the equipment. I would not/ever sell, give, or throw away any of it. But that's just me. If you see my shop, you'd understand. You may have more walking-around room than I have. Your Grandfather must have been a great wood-worker.

Yes I love it all. And there is a 3' to 2 1/2' disk sander and a comet radial arm saw and a shaper that I can't find room for I wish I had it that is why I am asking for some help. My Grandfather loved his tools and keeped them so sharp and running great. There is also more wood but I am running out of room. This thread is just to see if I can find the room. I wish I could buy his house so I could have the 4 car garage to put it all. My grandfather was a cabnet maker for Department of water and power in Los angles and wocked in lumber mills. I wish I got to learn more from him when he was health. But I am learning now
