Nice shop. Too bad it's missing some swarf.  ;D

I like your lathe cutting tool holders. I need to change mine. I don't have near as many but it's still difficult to see/find what I have.

Nice shot using the parallels to hold that part.
That wouldn't have occurred to a lot of people (like me).

Thanks for looking in, fellows! That bench has a story. My Dad acquired the top for it when I was about 1 year old and built the bench. Every mark in it means something to me and my brothers. The top is laminated vertical grain fir and on the back edge is painted a name. It is a diving board!! Genuine! But I don't have a pic.  :'(

The vise is a Morgan, Chicago, early thirties.

Now the drawer.....

The drawers are caned fruit boxes from the late forties-early fifties. Dad nailed runner strips on the boxes for rails in the bench.
The drawer with the hole... it's a knot hole. And one of us kids did knock it out way back! My brother used to shove tools in through the hole instead of opening the drawer...memories...

Pete,
Your shop looks good. I like the rack for the lathe tool holders. I hate to ask but did you try to hide the cookies from the shop gnomes in that one drawer? :lolb:

Looks like you found that lost oiler for the oilers :-)

Very neat, should make working a lot smoother not having to hunt for tools etc.

Brian,
Everything looks good. I have to admit to knowing next to nothing about flame lickers but I have seen one running at NAMES.

I like that vintage wood bench with the drawers.


So, shop is cleaned and ready to go. What's the plan for the next project?
