Man you have been busy and it shows. Now you have a nice clean shop to dirty up. Is that a painting oven I see under the bench next to what looks like a generator?

I think all us old married chaps just got him fired up with all  the lassie talk. Looks great old boy. Now, have you almost tripped and fallen, stepping over something that isn't there anymore? Hey, if you ever want to get that old Continental Tire sign outta sight, I got just the place for it :naughty:. Really, looking great.

A belated Thanks all.

Marv, Shrek's not allowed in the shop - he has a habit of picking up the most annoying sounds and merrily repeating them as part of his repertoire.  I won't look forward to getting scared out of bed in the mornings by the (amplified) sound of a brass cut in full chatter...

Don, it's just a normal kitchen oven that I replaced with a nicer one in the house's kitchen when I moved in.  I have toyed with the thought of wiring it up for use in the shop, and it will make a good place to let painted parts dry  ;)

Time to mess it up!
Mess it up - yes! - but unfortunately the "time" part is currently at a premium...

Eric, it's actually feels weird walking around all over the place without having to step over things.  The tire sign was left by the previous owner; he used to service and rebuild Mazda rotary engines in it.

I must say, it has been worth the effort, though I keep forgetting where I put some things.  It'll take some getting-used to...

Kind regards, Arnold
Building an engine takes Patience, Planning, Preparation and Machining.
Procrastination is nearly the same, but it precludes machining.
Thus, an engine will only be built once the procrastination stops and the machining begins!

Nicely done Arnold.   I agree its nice to have it all sorted out....a shop seems to follow along the chaos theory, and gets disordered after a while....sometimes it just needs to get reined in...
