Show me your shop!

Nice looking shop you have there John. There's nothing like a power hammer to make a guy start thinking of larger projects is there?

I make my mallets from baseball bats I pick up at garage/yard sales. The ash is a lot more durable than anything else I have available for reasonable.

Frosty the Lucky.

@ alec. Something about the cup brush mounted on the bench grinder bothers me. I can't quite put my finger on it. Otherwise, Nice shop!! :)

Heheh thanks Curly! I tell the wife the same thing but she just rolls her eyes, whats up with that? Though I think I'm selling the Soderfores on the left side of the last pic, 191lb little dished and edges are a little chipped up but the horn is excellent and could work great for someone.

And you wouldn't want to put your finger in it. lol.gif

Leather gloves, a Carhartt jacket and a face shield and you're good to go.

thanks, dodge! but that is my old shop! ;) ... the wire brush on the grinder isnt all that bad really... i've jammed my hand into it running many times and it is not painfull...leather gloves in my opinion would be a very bad thing to wear while operating machines like that... because if it gets caught... you'll just get sucked in by the machine, lose all controll and then, it will hurt when you jamn up the machine...... also, this one is not as dangerous as other machined like this because it has such a weak motor... very easy to stop... :) :)

It is pretty cool. Came with the house. The uppers has doors as well, bu they pissed me off, so they were carefully removed and stored.

Just to prove that it is possible. About a month ago I didn't have space on a table in the workshop to put a clipboard down. Now it is cleaner than it has been in many years, everything, including the cupboards and drawers, has been sorted and cleaned. The only stuff around is work in progress. Now I have to start on my forging area.
