My home machine shop tour
« on: October 07, 2016, 04:15:07 PM »
Before I embarked on another project and the workshop is fairly tidy I thought I would do a video of the shop. If you are struggling to sleep then watching this may remedy your problem!

Nah, I didn't nod off Andrew -
(because I just woke up from a nap)  :lol: and obviously your video wasn't boring enough to induce more sleep. 
     Looks like you are equipped to do just about anything you fancy in that playpen. Go ahead and make a mess, get the pulse jet finished? Or that clock?   :beer:

 Now I know why there's a shortage of quality second hand workshop equipment.....because it's all in Andrew's play room. Nice set up you have there  :thumbup:

I also have one of the narrow stack drawer filing cabinets,they really are superb for storing lathe tools etc. I'd like to find a couple more...OZ.

What is this wild talk of space in the middle of the workshop....   HERETIC ...

Well done, my workshop looks like a scrap yard after a hurricane.
Just get doing and make swarf, you can decide what its going to be later.   :thumbup:

No Andrew "A drawer with files" is the name of that famous painting by what's-his-name.  You know, the one of the guy doing a charcoal sketch while sitting next to a big pile of files.  Or was it a file cabinet, I can never remember.
