Starting from the outside
« on: September 24, 2009, 01:24:39 PM »
If there is ever a contest for messiest shop, I want to enter.
In keeping to the   :worthless: I submit the following. :coffee:

Starting with the lathe. I removed the light behind it and put it overhead.


Another lathe. 48" between centers.

Compound miter saw

Grizzly 14" band saw

Delta sander

Router table

6" jointer

Surface planer

Dovetail & finger jointer

Harbor Freight bargin drill press

Drum sander

Router Crafter. I can take detali pics of the components for anyone that would like to build one. It would be a piece of cake for the CNC'er

These are practice pieces, from when I first got it, to see the possibilities.

Table saw with emergency off switch paddle. I just bump it with my hip if I ever get in trouble.


I know most of this is not related to metal working, but I am wondering if I could sell most of it and have enough to get a mill. :scratch:

Many of the younger ones I know do every morning. Me? Not so much anymore after I hit 40.  :lol:
