I recently inherited a massive collection of wood working tools (table saw, joint, jointer-planer,etc) which take up alot of room. Unfortunately my garage is too small and I dont have basement. I do have, however, a third floor which is almost 850 square feet (with ac and heat). Ia it practical to make this my shop. There is a full stairway access. I am worried about the vibration of the power tools. I have heard of platforms that you place heavy duty power tools on to absorb vibration. Do they work? anybody know where I can find them. Also right now it is just a plywood subfloor (with radiant floor heating). should I consider a rubber flooring? Any suggestions for or against my idea would be greatly appreciated.
ps I realize that I would have to hire a moving company to get the heavy items up there
