Got my butt in gear, you old dog  :lolb:. Iím blessed to say that I have near 4500 sq. ft. of shop space, but, that has given me the chance to lay crap everywhere. Kim, my pal, you have given me the will to get it organized  :praise2:. Thanks

Achim,
Thanks for stopping by!
Well, I'm sure I've got more space than others, but I can tell you, it doesn't feel like enough! I'm still pushing things around and trying to jam more stuff in.  But I guess that's the way of it.  You always want more space (or tools, or casting sets :)) than you have!

Cletus,
Happy to give you a good kick in the pants, if that helps   :LittleDevil:

I think I've got a little over 400 sqft (about 2 bays of a 3 car garage).  But you have me beat by 10x!

Now you're going to have to give us a tour of that 4500SqFt shop!  :stickpoke:

Ahhh....  The dreaded shop remodel,  This might just be the inspiration I need to actually complete mine - like I've been threatening to do for about the last 5 years.  I've only got about 300-400 sq. ft., and that's shared between the tools for working with that brown non-homogeneous organic stuff that Jo hates so much and the metal tools.

Very nice space, Kim, and superbly set up following your sort-out.   :ThumbsUp:

I like the Grizzly lathe and mill. While I'm a fan of old British/American/European iron, I also find myself drawn to the convenience of new import machines, and these look like good ones! As you note above, they come with all you need straight out of the crate (or maybe I should say 'most of' what you need).

Hope you are having happy times in your shop.

It's an excellent space - very nice indeed.  :ThumbsUp:

I love that cabinet you have made to hold the plastic storage bins - I shall be making use of that idea.

Thanks Stewart,
Those little sliding cabinets keep the plastic trays much more accessible than my previous system, which was to keep them in a stack. And the one I needed was predictably on the bottom.   :Lol:

That's my current system! And not very satisfactory at all.
