Location: Olney, Ill.
retired from the phone co. back a few years ago. I have been married since 1970
, 2 kids both grown,6 grandkids, 2 boys, 4 girls. I live 11 miles from town, on 4.5 acres. do a little gardening, and some shooting.
did some antique repair and refinishing for a while. took on more jobs than I could handle by myself, I don't want to be that busy, and I don't want to hire help, so now I do mostly projects for the family and sell something occasionally, I've made grandfather clocks, wall clocks, stirring paddles, pens, pencils, mostly things that seem interesting or fun to do.
my shop, is 2300 sq ft, 860 of it is actually my mancave, 1440 ft is shop. I started in a 10x 12 storage shed, then to a 12x24 section in my barn, then moving to a 24x36 building then I attached a 30x 48 onto the end of that. first having only a radial arm saw, then a shopsmith, now I have all individual tools, with a PM66 being the center piece of my shop, it is so smooth running that I can stand a nickle on edge and start it up and it stays right up there.
the large part of my shop is heated with radiant heat in floor, very comfortable, no cold spots. the small part is heated with water through a heat exchanger, also due to a kitchen remodel about 4 years ago, I got to put a kitchen in the shop, w/ bathroom, hot and cold running water, sat tv, beer fridge, reloading bench, recliner, and computor.
