My belgian home shop
« on: January 08, 2021, 07:06:16 PM »
In my 'introduce yourself' post David (deltatango) asked me to show my shop. I am cleaning up so I can take some decent pictures. The shop is 6mx12m (20ftx40ft aprox) and has LED lighting. My machines run on 3x380V. It has a basement and attic (storage). It is divided into a woodshop and a metal shop (60/40). The woodshop part is bigger because I use it to make funiture, doors, windows etc and this kind of projects asks for more space.
I will post some pictures as I clean it up.

Looks nice  :cheers:

I can't see you get much use out of the old crane / hoist .... has a door been bricked up under it, or ....  :thinking:

Best wishes

At this moment there is a double door in it and the beam for the hoist is retractable.

Welcome Pieter! shop looks great. The dark flooring material - are they slates or ceramic tiles? They look nice. I like the clean up / refinish you did on the drill press. If you come to Canada you could drop by and polish the aluminum on a few of my machines!    :shrug: :cheers:

Looks like you are well set up there Pieter - some nice kit and more than capable of coping with a Julius version of the Corliss  :ThumbsUp:

Like the washing facility - mines soapy water in a plastic bottle  ::)

I am sure a few people will be thinking the same..........Your workshop is bigger than my house  :ThumbsUp:
You look to have plenty of space in there and I am very envious, I probably have way more equipment, but it is all crammed into a 16' x 12' shed at the bottom of the garden.

Looking forward to seeing some of your work.

What a fabulous shop  :ThumbsUp:

Phil,
You must have plenty of space in your 16x12 workshop, my 8x10 seems small now, I'm envious. :Lol:

Phil,

Its all relative..........My shed is home to 4 lathes, 2 milling machines, 2 drilling machines, 1 shaper, 1 gear hobber plus all the tooling that goes with them and all the other model engineering stuff like sets of castings and a hoard of materials etc. Bench space is at a premium I can tell you.
I have had to overflow into the garage in order to house a muffle furnace, a tool and cutter grinder, a pantograph engraver, welding bottles etc, all sharing space with a couple of motorbikes and spare engines and gearboxes for my Morris Traveller which unfortunately has to live outside under a car port.

It is very true that we can never have enough space, I know for sure that if I had twice as much space available, it would be just as full as it is now  ;D
