Workshop Information

Location
United States
This is some of my equipment. The shop is 22×30 and pretty well full with machines, tools and my Harley… ok, I do take the bike outside when working in the shop as it is a dust magnet. Also my middle son who does commercial heating and air, found an old 5 ton AC unit and installed it, and man you can hang meat in there in July. Makes the Georgia simmer..err, summer bearable. It's a small shop but it works.

Mark, you have a nice shop in which to work. The OSB sheeting is a good idea in that it sure makes hanging cabinets a breeze. It looks like you have plenty of room to wander around in your shop and you certainly have a nice set of tools to play with as well.

Thanks for the tour. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Thanks guys,
It was hard for me to get away from the real heavy iron, but for a home workshop, the big stuff just won't work. Like the 36" Cresent bandsaw, a Yates American J-180 planer, an old American 16" jointer and others I had in my patternshop. But the equipment in the new shop works well. The Northfield 20" bandsaw is probably my favorite in my current collection. When I bought it my son and I took it apart, cleaned it well and installed new bearings. Jeff Mahachek at Northfield was very helpfull with information. It was the 115th saw made in 1943, sold to the US Navy. The several Powermatic machines are interesting and fun to use. The model 90 lathe was a good project. I bought it for 250 bucks. It was in pretty rough shape but we did a complete disassemble job on it and replaced some broken parts, cleaned and painted it and it turned out ok. The cabinet is bent up, if I can find one in good shape, I may replace it.

Nice Shop Mark.

My Dad was a patternmaker and quite honestly was caught by surprise when I saw your site name. I wasn't sure if there were any more of you guys out there anymore. It is a small world.
