I use a portable AC unit and roll it around to where ever I'm working. Its great for taking the heat off you head. I just let it vent up toward the ceiling and have a small bucket for the water drip. I think I paid $295 for it

Not a bad idea Dave, do you keep the shop doors open or closed? Remember where you got it?

I can see how sitting in front of it while the fan is blowing
across the cooling coil would keep you cool, as long as you
didn't move away from your spot.
But I don't understand how those can cool a room. The heat it
takes out of the air is pumped right back into the room unless
it's vented to the outside so what ever cooling it's doing is
being offset by the heat it has to get rid of in a closed room.

According to the "overview" it says vent to outside. This is only part of the overview.

I'm guessing there is a pretty good temp gradient in the room roof to floor. But our shops down here are mostly metal buildings with roof peak vents so hot air goes up and out anyway. I first heard of these things back during hurricane Ike when folks were using generators. I believe there is an option to run a vent pipe outside in an enclosed room application.

I use it as spot cooling . It will never cool an entire room. Turn the vent pipe upward toward the ceiling or roof and yes you do have to move it if your not staying in one place, I use it when I'm on the lathe or sitting is one spot for any length of time.

Guys one of the best buys I ever made at a Swap Meet was trading for a "swamp cooler" as we call them in Texas. Recirculating water pump drips water over mesh so you get evaporative cooling. I know they have high dollar one at Lowes & HD but check Craiglist or local greensheets for older units. I spent $ 20 on a new aquarium pump to circulate water and good as new.
