Here’s my home away from home. My “work-shop” is a 15×20 shed with 10×20 attic storage that I built on the corner edge of our lot. It has 100amp service, telephone, intercom, internet, and cable TV. The only thing I don’t have, which I would strongly recommend is radiant heat in the floor!! These photos are quite old since I took them, I’ve got it quite packed and messy since then. I do someday plan on cleaning and organizing the shop, but can’t justify taking a week off of work to do it!! in the summer time I store my snow blower in the attic, and lawn mowers in winter. The hoist comes in quite handy.

I will update these photos when i get my cycles out of there, and I clean up the place!!

Al.

That’s an enviable structure you’ve got there, Alberto. I’ve not seen that model of lathe before, but I find the the speed change lever system is interesting. BTW, I thought I was the only one still watching a CRT TV.

Those are interesting videos showing how the lathe mechanism works. I suppose you don’t find that on lathes today because manufacturers like to make the lathe separate from the base—and they prefer electronic motor controls. That one seems to be doing quite well in spite of it’s age, though.

Have your say...
