Workshops, Post 'em if you got 'em

PostBy: Richard S. On: Tue Sep 02, 2008 11:42 am

We live in a double block. The entire thing basement level is pretty work space and the furnace. On the one side is primarily the woodworking shop. Most of these tools are my Dad's or my brothers so I can't take credit for them. I have a few smaller one's myself. The only thing they are really missing at this point is a nice wood lathe. I have an old crappy one good enough for making bats but thats about it. :

My workshop is in the detached garage, a 20 x 24 space behind the actual car parking area. Here are a couple pics from a while ago. It's always in some level of organized chaos depending on the 5 or so concurrent projects.

By the way, Richard....I have clamp envy. What is that bandsaw model?

You guys got me beat, but I just got my garage done last fall, getting a few things for it. Got the worktable mounted. Still need to get the ceiling in and finish the walls. But it works for now!

I have more stuff in the basement (next to the coal stove)...keeps it a bit warmer in the winter!!

An old Sears (Cira 1970's ) Table Saw, Band Saw, router, scroll saw and some other things, slowly getting it going. You can't see them in the picture,

My woodworking shop is in semi-retirement.. but below is my car/truck shop.. I rebuild / upgrade automatic transmissions for Dodge Diesel [Cumins] Pickup trucks.. And rebuild/repair older cars.

In the photo below, my machine shop is on the left,, it has several work benches, a Metal lathe, drillpress, welding bench, sandblasting cabinets, grinder etc.. in the center my 12K hoist, on the right is my trans shop, wet-benches with drains,, lots of removed stock parts.

The shop is heated by Hydronic in-floor hot water, this keeps the shop around 40* all winter,, for day-long projects, I fire up a waste-oil burner and this big furnace warms the trans 'room' up ot 65* within an hour or so,, the rest of the shop gets up to 55* or so after a few hours.. The waste oil burner burns about 5 gallons of ATF or engine oil in 10 hours.. the wate oil if free..

Take care.. Greg

My shop isn't built yet and I refuse to post any current photos of the cellar (where almost everything is) or the old barn, out of embarrassment. Stay tuned.

My shop, or what's left of it, is in shambles. I'm putting the EFM on the one side. When I get it re-organized and set up I'll post some pics.
