« Part 8: How I Spent My Vacation Part 9 of The Saw Horse Workshop - A New Begining series Part 10: I've Finally got the Shop Operational »

Well, the rains has cost me about 2 weeks work on the new house and the shop, however I have been able to move my machines, workbenches and some tools into the shop. Here are some pics from inside the shop.

This pic shows some of the cabinets I installed, I got them at an auction, brand new still in the boxes for about 1/2 of what they would cost retail

This pic show the left corner of the shop looking in from the sliding door, notice the 24” drum fan I hung in the corner, it really helps cool the shop along with the other fan I hung in the right corner as pictured in the next pic

Together, even on low these 2 fans work great to move the air in the shop lowering the temp drastically.

This pic is of the area behind the office (not finished with office yet) it shows my workbenches and clamps.

Thanks Bob, I can tell you that it sure is nice to be able to get to all my machines without having to move everything out of the way and then move it all back when I’m finished. The shop I had at the rent house was way too confining….now if I could just get power to the shop without having to run an extension cord 150 feet from the temp utility pole…....lol

Sawhorse, you could do like I do- use a generator! Of course, it’s the most expensive electricity I ever used…

Great find on the cabinets. It’d be hard to build something that cheap. No point in re-inventing the wheel.

I like the two fans. I’ll have to keep that in mind for my own shop. Just moving the air would cut down on the air conditioning requirements.

I really hadn’t thought of using a generator Robert because the construction was going so well and then the rains came and slowed everthing down. Hopefully the rains have stopped for a while. my contrractor says we couls have power to the shop by the end of the week….fingers crossed…

Here are the specs on the fans Karson -

Heavy duty, 1/3HP motor generates continuous, powerful air movement
2 speeds (2,800 cfm and 4,000 cfm) allows you to select the right amount of air for your conditions
3-blades fan assembly powered by a vibration-free, direct drive design, to efficiently maximize motor energy
Sturdy base with 4” wheels enable the fan to be moved anywhere with ease
Tough 20-Gauge steel housing for durability
Non-skid positioning legs provide a stable base
Fan head can be rotated a full 180 degrees on the base, allowing air to be precisely where it’s needed
Included 9’ power cord
3.6 Amps
UL listed
Dimensions: 12” W x 26” dia.
Weight: 44 lbs
