My temporary shop
« on: September 12, 2017, 08:33:46 AM »
My shop in the garage that I have to share with the dog  ;D , the idea is to build a new shop in the garden after the house is ready , a promise that I had to make to my girlfriend  ;D

Cheers Jef

That looks extremely comfortable Jef..... It would take ages and a lot of hassle to move  :(

Would it not be better to leave it where it is and let the girlfriend have a shed in the garden (or is the plan the new one will be bigger  :mischief:) .

Agreed. I built a pottery for my other half, the same size as my workshop . That's hers on the right with the big windows. Works a treat - the pottery and the arrangement!

BTW, the tired grass has been replaced: we now have the artificial stuff!

It's called "Baloni" , apparently is it a Dutch lathe which also was published in a Dutch magazine in the fiftees " de Modelbouwer" for home construction

Hi Jeff,
Looks like plans for a compression ignition engine?
