Flyboy Jim's Shop
« on: February 14, 2016, 04:59:54 PM »
I thought this would be a good way to figure out how to post pictures.

I was able to find a spot for my new Sherline lathe and mill, as well as my ever-growing collection of tools and accessories.  I have a hunch that the woodworking equipment is going to get slowly displaced.

Woodworking and metalworking can coexist if you are careful. You just need a bigger shop.

Nice shop Jim.

I avoid wood as much as I possibly can; I don't like the dust all over my machines and shop!  :lolb:

I guess that might be the nice thing about Sherlines.........................move them out.....................do some woodworking...................clean up...................move them back in.  ;) Won't be a big deal since I don't do much woodworking anymore.

Nice shop, Jim.

Wood and metal get along fine in my workshop. Admittedly though I restrict my woodworking to mostly hand tools; they take up less room and make very little dust. Now if only I could stop my bandsaw from spewing dust I'll be laughing....

Very nice.
I have a metal end if the shop and a wood end (which admittedly gets little use now.)
I'm about to divest myself of the Jet jointer and dust collector, Delta lathe, planer and over arm sander.
Makes more room for metalworking stuff.
It looks like you have  a Unisaw with Biesmeyer fence. Mine will stay as I do use them.
As you get more metal stuff, the storage becomes an interesting exercise.
Good luck.
Best,
Stan
