    Okay - lots of good recommendations here - thanks to all.

    • Moved the dehumidifier to the left of the door.
    • Organized that under-table storage area to store the little metal saw - trying to dense-pack!
    • Swapped the drill press and the 6x48 sander to the other side of the shop.
    • Cleaned and patched and painted the wall as an inspiring backdrop.
    • Will make a bracket to raise the phase converter straight up; will mount on the wall to the upper right of the door frame.
    • Phase converter input will go over the door frame; will share 240/50A circuit with the plasma cutter.

    Perfect!
    Since no one ever reports too much space, there are many layout possibilities.
    Good job hanging transformer and humidifier; not only saves maintenance or electrical issues, you utilizE the most overlooked [IMNSHO] resource of all...cubic space. Some folks don't get past hanging wall charts.
    If it doesn't block light or hit your head, all's good.

    Mounted and ran the cables neatly for the RPC; cranked up the mill for the first time in its new home - she's happy!
