Here is a corner of my 'Garage' shop.  It needs organized and as soon as I figure out what I am doing as far as do this first, then this, etc.....I will ---- 'git er done.'

I have one more table to construct for the polishing wheels and I think it will rest (on wheels of course) in front of the bench behind the cabber.

I can't remember the last time my shop was that clean.  What is that rotary vice?  I can only think of about a hundred things I could do with that.

Alright I will fess up...I did a bit of cleaning before I took the picture.  You can't really tell but everything except the 10" Lortone saw is on wheels...and it will be soon.

The rotary vise is my bicycle stand.  Great for changing tires, adjusting brakes, derailleurs and numerous other things.

This shop is more for working on wood.  I usually open the main door which is to the left in the pic.  My compressor is on the far left along with my welder.  I always open the door and push the welder outside of course when I use that. 

The smaller shop holds my 14" slab saw, tumblers, flat lap etc.  I posted a pic of that earlier.

Yes it so neat and organized in there...  What that must be like...

My husband has his machine shop in the garage and it is filled to the brim.  I had to move all of my reptiles into my art room (dogs harassing reptiles~ life is much more peaceful now) so consequently the contents of the art room had to come out and now my stuff is in disarray and chaos.  I have a table set up for all of my "other" crafty stuff and the kitchen table holds my Pixie.  Trim saw is out back with all of the casting equipment...  Anyone want to buy a Torrit?  That monstrosity is out there too.

Gina...what in the world is a Torrit?

Your husband has a machine shop? Could I be your friend?....Could I be your husbands friend?

A life long dream to have a machine shop.......hmmmmm (read as a sigh).

Here is my smaller shop for the saw and lap and tumblers and bikes and trim saw and bucket filter for rocks and chain saws and small engines and ....blah blah blah.  Anyway just a couple of pics to share.  Hope you enjoy.  I really like everyone else's pics.

Ditto.  I have a single folding table in the basement!  I want to expand but that entails getting more tables somehow. 

Nice setup though in the garage!

It's a big, huge, honkin' monstrosity of a dust collector that vacuums dust into a filter.  I spellet it wrong~ it's TORIT.  Here's an example of one that I googled: http://www.fraingroup.com/equip_5D1512.html  I see that we may potentially be missing a component by looking at this picture~ ours doesn't have the chimney on top but this is listed as the same model number.

Yes you can be our friend.  Come over, you are in for a real treat!
