Naw Chris, see us old boys down here like that old “hunt camp, lodge type, shop on a dirt floor, with great grandpa’s night stand for what holding tools, spit on the wood stove, kinda thing. Y’all hold onto stuff back into the 1700’s and paint it alls white and green and stuff. Really for years we couldn’t afford much more than white wash  :old: 8)

I recommend one of the 135Kg Motorcycle hydraulic scissor lifts to move it round :ThumbsUp: One with wheels.... but they don't seem to do those like they used to  :-\

Doesn't need one Jo. He can just move it around with that John Deere front loader!  ;)  :lolb:

Nice idea Jim, but afraid I might be like a bull in a china shop with the JD in the shop. I best drive it about out in the yard I think and eventually it will be parked in the new house's garage between uses.

Before they started getting to dirty, I put a medium walnut Danish oil stain/sealant on the cabinets, just to give them a more finished look. A before picture from a prior post and an after picture are shown below. I also plumbed the compressed air line connection in the corner of that workbench with a regulator and two outlets after the regulator...one for a quick connect air hose and the other (with the ball valve) dedicated for use with the lighted work chamber. That's about it for the last couple of days, been busy with house decisions otherwise.

2 suggestions....If I might....


1    get a nice hi volume dust extractor, or at LEAST a shop vac on that buffing station....keep the abrasive dust away from those sweet innocent lathes....  8)

2.   Put a plexiglass wall divider up on the bench right there, to prevent dust migration even more.     It'll give you a place to hang the cloth wheels....

JMHO....

Dave, somewhere pages ago when I added the hoods to the buffer, I connected the elbows from each with a common piece of PVC pipe with a hole in it to connect to the shop vac. That should keep dust and such away from the "innocent" lathes. The Plexi divider I hadn't thought about, don't need the storage with the cabinets, but using it as a divider could still help. Both the work chamber on the far end and the scroll saw also can be hooked up to the shop vac.

Coming along there Bill.

Since we are all suggesting white walls & ceiling.....& you don’t seem to be taking the hint......if you can “borrow” some white sheets, well ok that might be pushing it just a bit, get your self a roll of white paper & put it on the walls just to see what we are all going on about........ just a thought.......


Cheers Kerrin

Hard wiring the compressed air is a great move.  :ThumbsUp:
I've thought about that, but that's all I've done. I still drag a hose around the shop wherever I go.
Where do you hide your compressor?

Kim,

The compressor is in the closet as shown on the attached PDF file. Currently in addition to the plumbed outlets shown yesterday, there is a plumbed outlet overhead just to the left of the mill as well. I may look at extending this over the area where the Sherlines will reside also as another drop connection from overhead.

For a test bench for engines, I will likely still use the little California Air Compressor as a separate supply for that purpose.

To be a little more vague...PAINT IT!

In fact, paint one wall a different color (accent wall). Makes the room look larger...not that it needs to.

P.S. Paint it now. You'll be hanging even more stuff off the walls and that'll make it more difficult.
