No real pictures just yet, but I got a TON done yesterday.   I did move the drill press, and I'll be mounting the vise in it's place.    I've repaired my cabinets, and cleared the floor.   Next is a new stock rack and a general reorganization of the "dirty" cart....that has all the grinding and sanding equipment on it..  I'll be making the portion of the bottom of it a stock rack and ejecting the existing stock rack..   That will open the shop up and allow me more access to the stock .

Ive ordered the remaining parts I need to get my 1x42 belt sander going....that's a really useful tool....
the 14" bandsaw will be next to repower

My new shelving behind the mill is now FULL!... :lolb:

We progress....pictures tomorrow I think....

The mill shelf got cleaned up a bit...especially the strap rack, which is now neat and clean and easy to keep tidy.    Additionally I got my new stock rack loaded up

Looks great Dave!
I used my drill press today, ;) Could have done it in the mill but it was easier and faster to deepen a few holes in some cast iron engine heads  that I was working on.

Dirty bench ....with stock rack...is near complete.   It's on big casters and I can wheel it outside if possible...though...it's a heavy (&*#*@ and I suspect if I start out the door it will roll down the driveway and into the road before I get a hold of it   :lolb:

However....at least it's all in one place, and I can put a fan up to blow the dust outside

I think the Gorton 265-6 has to go.   I'll put way too much into it to get it to do what I want it to do...and a full size surface grinder isn't gonna happen!

Gotta get the motor mounted for the 14" bandsaw.   I have a belt tensioner, that will hang the motor under the top of the bench.     This particular saw is a back geared saw...meaning it has a back gear for cutting metal.    The gear box is DRY...as I've never seen it used to cut metal, and ive been around this saw for 40 plus years.   I'll pull the gear box off tomorrow and make sure all is well and clean, and then fill it with oil and see if it stays in.
