Philip, Your shop looks so interesting. It’s a wonderful shop with a lot of nice equipment and plenty room. Congratulations on a job well done. I love the small machine shop.

I cant help beeing in love with that wonderful old metal lathe.
What a place to play with materials.

Now this is a shop that any of us would be proud to be working in. It is spacious, well organized and I, personally, would love to have this much head room in my shop. Thanks for the tour. I enjoyed taking a look at your shop.

Very nice, Phillip. I can see how this is where you work your magic.

Is the Autoforge in the kitchen ?

Daaaaaaaaam, you by far have the ultimate workshop. Let me guess you still need more space though? Do you do all your work on the metal lathes or just make the screws and blade adjusters stuff like that? Where do you work on the soles like to flatten and smooth them, also where do you make the blades at?

Derosa and Manitario: the band saw has no manufacturer name on it by I think it may be of German origin. There is a date stamped on the underside of one foot ,1909. Originally meant to be driven by line shaft from above with flat belt, but I converted to vee pulleys and added the 3 hp British 3phase motor which itself is fine example of British engineering as it was. I saw it in a small town in Rhodesia during the war , abandoned , burnt and rusting outside in a yard-the owner wouldn’t part with it, saying he would “fix it up one day”. Took me three years to relieve him of it.
It used to have beautiful pressed steel wheel covers but these were rusted and burnt beyond recovery so I made the wooden ones. It has roller bearings on the drive shaft and adjustable ball bearings for thrust and lateral bearings-like a bicycle wheel bearing.
It can cut a depth of 14 inches….

Helluvawreck: there is a lot of small stuff accumulated over years that is not easy to show-like engineering tools etc…..
