The Frog House (aka ‘my shop’, aka ‘the garage’ is a unattached two car garage, complete with central heat/air, and a full bathroom. We recently moved into the house and I am in the process of setting up the way I want it (always a work in progress. I’ve included some pictures of my more recent projects / machines I am in the process of restoring.

Thanks for the kind words. It is a work in progress, and I do not spend nearly enough time in there as I would like. Many of my “machines” are inherited from father and grandfather, and who knows where else. I threading lathe is a southern bend from the late 30s or early 40s. My other vintages include a 1970s Jet Mill / Drill, 1970s Powermatic free-standing drill dress, and a 1970s Craftsman 9” jointer (in process of refurbishing). I have a similar aged Rockwell 10” bandsaw, but it is without a table. (Still trying if it is worth building a table.) I am currently trying to build up my ‘collection’ of vintage hand tools – so if anyone has a line on some, please, shoot me a message.

Hi Kirk Welcome to LJs
Looks like you’ve got your garage set up very well as a shop plus some good equipment.
