Maarten, this looks like a nice shop in which to work. You appear to have plenty of room in there and you have some nice tools to play with as well.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed the tour.

Nice shop, nothing like breathing some new life into old tools. Thanks for the tour.

Great shop., great space.
You have heavy stationary machines and that europhean style “panel sliding saw” can only be seen in a furniture factory in my country.

Woodworm, i did not know that. But here in Belgium there are a lot of heavy machines on the second hand market available for a low price. Their weigh is huge! But when you get them home to your workshop, re paint them and oil them, then you got a real professional machine that gives that extra touch for working ;-)

But i still love it when i take my hand saw en start making something ;-)

I love seeing old machines put back into use. I am sure they will last another 100 years!

Cheers

And i recently obtained a new old machine, one that drills a large number of holes at ones with a distance of 32mm. And for drilling hinges. I will have a lot work to get it new again, but it will be a dream wans i get it to work!
