64 y/o (2022), married, no kids, recently retired (good move). Looking forward to getting back into my shop soon.

Twenty-two years ago we moved into an old farmhouse that needed work (see "workshop" section). The farmhouse is on 14 acres of land in NE PA. The outbuildings also needed a lot of work... you know how that is... my time was all spent in working at my ex-job and restoration of multiple buildings. I had to restore a 1600 sq ft barn to make that into my shop. A big job. So, woodworking was put-off. The wood "shop" is now piled-high with all my stuff (my wifey calls it "junk")... barely enough room to walk around.

I am, as most of us are, a pack-rat. I can't throw anything away that might have future use. Additionally, I am a "dumpster-diver"... got a lot of great things from dumpsters (esp. at work).

I have to finish the second floor of the shop building for storage. The first floor is/will be my woodworking shop.

My father-in-law (RIP) got me into metalworking, welding, electrical, construction, etc. I then added another 1000 sq ft to my shop for metalworking.

I LOVE "old iron"... I have A LOT of flat-belt drive machines. Most need some restoration. So, I will be busy in retirement. I will post some of my projects from before we moved to the farm.

Thanks for the "add"... Alex Acle.
Benton, PA, USA & Proud of it!
