See what happens when you don’t have a plan. I have to maintain room for momma’s car and Fred (the Harley) year round, and my truck in the winter. Everything is on wheels, and gets put up and cleaned up after use. I don’t get much done, but I’m making good time. The pin on the map is the job.
7/27/09 I’ve been moving things around. Some things went to the basement, now I have 2 places to make a mess. 1 big shop would be nice, but I am very thankful to have what I have. I still need a plan.
7/7/10 I’m starting to get a plan going. The basement is my main work area now. I keep the big, loud stuff in the garage, and everything else downstairs. It seems to be working. I don’t do many large projects.
One of the features in the basement is a steel pole, supporting an I- beam. I was able to turn this into an asset by locating tools around it. I have 2 band saws, a scroll saw, a drill press and drill accessories cart around it, and a tv mounted to it. I ran a new 20 amp circuit overhead.
I had a large (4’x 12’ x 36” high) workbench, that worked good in the old place, but took over here. I broke it down, made a 2’ x 6’ x 36” bench from the remnants. I also have a workbench on wheels.
The corner is full of shelves with tools and supplies. I use a cart to hold scraps, miter saw and an air cleaner. It’s handy that way, I can roll it to where I need it.
It’s still a work in progress.

New pix 4, 5 and 6 9-11-12
As of 1/18/2014 I have taken over more than 1/2 of the basement. I sneak things in when no one else is here. Too bad I need that water heater, I could use that space.
8-9-2014 Out with the old, in with the new, at least some of it. I sold my Jet lathe and a few other things, and did some re-configuring. I had to, I had 20 pounds in a 5 pound sack. Now it’s about 15 pounds.
