Thanks for the tip. It was bothering me as well, but I finally figured out how to adjust the image size on my phone.

Welcome Matt. I’m StL area as well, on the Illinois side of the river.

I’ll jokingly add: the bench under your CMS, picture no. 2, is way too low for me!

LOL, I actually just picked that up off the curb. My Dad’s neighbor was throwing it away, just because he wanted a new one.

Welcome to LJ’s Corny...

Bless pottzy for his comment as I’m one of those rsoles that throw wobblies with sideways pictures. If you were guilty, I thank pottzy for the words of wisdom and equally you for the remedial action.

Looking at your pictures of the workshop, takes me back to when I had a roller skate sized garage… not even big enough to park both skates… however, in 1 word”you’re gonna need MORE clamps”...... You may notice that next to my phobia of sideways pictures, I can’t count when it counts.

Had to add some more greenery!

Drill press cart is finished, minus installing the moving shelf with all the bits.

Just an FYI… though some may disagree, some advocate keeping drill bits separated… Clanking together has a negative affect on their shelf life… I hear rumors that steel on steel has a greater wear than flesh on steel,

... if I’ve read it correct.

It’s probably negligible, however, its something few consider.

So LBD if i’m reading this correctly, your saying to store drill bits (non-moving) but at rest against one another, causes them to wear down faster?

...pondering…

Unless the drill bits were placed in a tumbler after being stacked together, I don’t see the logic.

But I could be wrong

I probably am be wrong too... just quoting what I read somewhere and if you knew of my detestation of the “readen word”, it’s a quote to be treasured… one of those thing lodged in my brain that alcohol will not move… like a persistent ex-wife(s)...
I hate loose tools and especially frown if they can bang each other, so I’m happy to place credence in the blunting theory… now you’ve got me thinking where I got that brainwash, as I only register bottle-shop sale details to such a micro level.

Thanks for the wrap pottzy... you got me thinking of coming out... DOH! of retirement… and get you to write my résumé for a job application at Old McDonald’s Farm.
Also appreciate the head-up on sideways pictures… I’d rather have Cornfed get pissed off with me and my comments rather than me with his sideways photos…

Nice shop, and welcome! Im not too far ahead of you in my setup and woth even less space (on casters, packs into a 4×8’ footprint, waiting for the weekend when I can pull a car out of the garage to set it up). Also I have the same drill press I got for $30 on CL, plenty happy with it so far. Love the bright green shop cabinets, keepin it vibrant :)
