    This happened very quickly and unexpectedly. Was a drive from hell
    yesterday due to the weather but made it safely.

    Of course my tractor isn't big enough to help unload it. Going to be interesting.

    Is that a lathe?

    My dad recently gave me my grandfather's old lathe. It's a fucking tank. I had to unmount the motor, take the legs off and the top end is still ridiculously heavy.

    I now have to help my friend clean out his old OLD barn so I can set up all of my hand-me-down tools and have a woodshop.

    The barn has no heat btw and this is NOT the winter to be dealing with that silliness.

    Shop stove had some terribly warped doors. I'm no welder or fabricator, but it was a good project. Still need handles obviously.

    Lots of options in a shop like that.

    I look forward to what comes out of the shop even if it is just saw dust and metal chips.

    Enjoy!

    With a stove and all that space.. I could turn it into a huge 1 room apartment. Then, cook for a whole family.

    Haven't gotten much going in here. On the road as usual this summer. I have plans to install a permanent ladder up to the loft. Found a metal ladder in a scrap pile, so why not.

    I barged in on a fellow devil for an entire weekend recently. Was so great to spend some time with someone with his level of experience. It was quite a privilege and greatly appreciated. Although watching someone with so much experience makes things look to damn easy! He should not be surprised if I barge in again.

    Among all the crazy tricks and homemade tools I saw, I learned my grinder was mounted to high. Nothing a chainsaw couldn't fix. Also did something with the grinder attachments, FINALLY. Still heaps to do but it always nice to accomplish something.

    So excited. Yes this compressor sat for a stupid long time. But its alive now. Listened to too many people and did some stupid things, but it is what it is now.

    Currently have the system charged and shut down. Please dont leak.

    Thanks Benny. Still a bit to do. Going to put some hooks inside for hanging things, maybe some slotted 2x4s for sliding different work rests/tables in there.

    Yeah, having things setup right (convenient, easy to put away etc) is the best way to keep a shop clean.
    I've managed to do it once out of 3 shops ive set up :hairpull:
