Shed time.......show us your workshops
28.01.2013 at 10:50:37
 
Guys, a friend sent me this link and I've been in a daze since thinking about how I can improve (read clean up) my workshop.

I realise this guy must be a little anal about a clean workshop but it is inspiring all the same.

If you have an inspiring / interesting workshop I'm sure we would all enjoy a tour with your photo's / descriptions.

As soon as I've tidied up mine I'll post some.

Enjoy - http://12-gaugegarage.com/

The only thing I didn't show is the 1/4 ton mono rail 'lecky hoist that runs the length of the shed.

Great tour around the shed Bernie, and good to put a voice to the name.  Keep up the good work.

Be it firearms, grog or V-8 engines, the question to be asked is not "Why do I need it?"
No, the question is "Who are you to demand that I justify it?"

I though about calling it an 'electrical test station.' (The test is that if those hammers don't fix the thing, then it's definitely an electrical problem.)

Thanks for posting the link, dirty wheels.

My garage pages are getting a lot of traffic this week because another website made a video about my car and garage. The car isn't a commercial vehicle, I'm afraid. But it is over 40 years old.  And it moves pretty quick in the video.   Cool



Link.

And the garage is very clean in its pictures (and also the video), but it is a working shop.

Jack, great video! Smiley Lovely Porche, and the workshop ... well, that is truly something else. Thanks for sharing it all with us!

Just as well the Porche is not powered by Detroit ... you'd spend all your time cleaning the floor! Grin Grin Grin

Thanks Jack, no problem with posting stuff here.

A very eminent group of gentlemen frequent these pages and I'm sure would appreciate your efforts in the workshop along with keeping a 40 yo machine in top condition.
