Ye-Ole Steam Dude home shop

Howdy to everybody,

I have had several folks ask about my home workshop so I made this short video showing my equipment. This was a screened in back porch that I closed in and converted into the shop. Nice thing about it is I walk from the house right into the shop.

Thomas, I'll cover the welcome and shop thread both here. Since Bill didn't give the Jepordy answer, a southeastern Texas feller  :ThumbsUp: :ThumbsUp:. Your shop just looks great, so well organized. Great bunch here, though times we (discuss :mischief:) about like siblings: just jump in and make yourself to home  :Jester:

Nice set up there Thomas, there are a few of our members who will be very jealous of your workshop  ;).

Nice shop Thomas, I really like the press brake that you designed and built.

Thanks for the tour!
I wouldn't call it a small shop. Looks like you've got some walkin' room.

I'm in the process of setting up a new shop and you've given me a couple of useful ideas.

Your mill looks very similar to what I just got.

My shop is kind of like a galley on a boat, enough room to work but not too far to reach everything. I plan to sell the big press brake because I'm not using it anymore, so that will free up a bit more room.

Have a great day,
