    Plasmas are great for cutting and for starting fires.

    Just my 2 cents....
    Absolutely. Normally I move her vehicle out before working, and just about everything else that people normally put in a garage (especially flamables) has been moved to a garden shed. I started about a year ago slowly progressing my "garage" to a "shop" which my wife can still park in. Basically, my side is 100 percent work space while her side is part-time extra workspace.

    I have two extinguishers in the welding and blacksmith area. Then I have a couple more spread around the machinery area. At every door way and every work area I have fire extinguishers.

    Smoke detectors can be useless in some areas, due to the smoke that is generated, and in some cases, the steam of some projects will set off the detector.

    If you need air exchange put dyer vents in, one for intake and one for exhaust.
