    Default Workshops

    The recent thread about "sharpening pegwood" moved a little into types of workers, and their workshops.
    I find pictures of tools/workshops more interesting than those of yet another punched up bearing, so thought I'd start a thread about workshops.

    As I'm the OP I'd better put up some pics of the main part of my shop.
    There're other rooms but I tend to spend most time in this one.
    Originally, and still actually, a shop for the repair of everything including the maintenance of my super reliable ( yeah, right.....), 45 year old, English sports car.

    Ralph.

    I wasn't going to post this until things are straightened up, but what the hell?
    Here's an unblemished view. It's not magazine photo-shoot. I'm in the process of making new storage solutions. Hopefully that will be done soon. This is most of the General Repair, Clock Repair & Heating Repair Shop. It's usually neater than this, but it doesn't take long to get like this!


    The Woodshop is out in the Garage, which I'll add later. Stationary Power Equipment includes a Delta 10" cast iron Table Saw, PowrKraft Floor Model Drill Press with infinity speed Control, Rockwell Thickess Planer, Rockwell Joiner, Rockwell Shaper, Delta Wood Lathe, Delta benchtop Belt/Disc Sander.

    I really like the Riser platform idea that the tambour clock is sitting on. I have a wooden box I use, but it doesn't straddle anything on the bench. So every time I use it I need to clear the bench top.

    Always find something useful in these threads.

    What's that critter next to the Sessions?
    A man with a clock always knows the time. A man with two clocks is never sure.

    It is a battery operated clock with all sorts of moving gears. One day I found it on my desk at work. Never did find out who the donor was.

    Well I took photo's of my indoor clock workshop today I have an outdoor workshop but that is apart from tool making for projects related to vintage, classic motorcycling and woodwork now nothing clock related.
    You see from the photo's it is tiny barely more than a cupboard but I make it work for me quite well tooling is brought to the bench as needed then put back into its place. I can spin around on my swivel stool to access the tools on the magnetic racks very pleased with this arrangement one of the advantages of having a small workshop and the tools do not get unwanted magnetic properties.

    Here's Shopdog Oreo, his last picture didn't post.

    Jerry, The last time my bench looked as clean as yours was the day I built it. I have no delusions of it ever being that way again.
    I'd be satisfied to complete my storage projects, and once again having my benches and the Work Shop in general neat & orderly.

    One of the advantages of access to machine tools is the ability make your own clock repair equipment there are some great designs out there and you can cherry pick ideas you like to make tools that suit the way you work or overcome common problems

    Great little shop, Stephan
    But where do you put clocks waiting for repair or those on a trial-run?

    I run a Gantt Chart on the computer I have a three month waiting list but I only have a months worth of work on the premises at one time (in theory customers do bring early or take late ) but on the whole it works the clocks on test are dotted about the house, the clocks waiting are in plastic boxes in the outside workshop or in the house.

    Next I'm building a small Down-Draft spray cabinet. If I spray in the garage I get overspray all over Gods Creations.
    If I spray outside the wind picks up, or bugs & dirt land in my finish.

    I need a suitable place for Lacquering.

    Blkbeard,

    As a tried and true dog lover, I have to comment on Shopdog Oreo. He is so very cute! I usually let both of our dogs into the garage while I'm working on my clocks. They have fun sniffing around and I love the company. Every once in a while they will get into a tugging match over some treasure they have found on the somewhat messy floor of my work area, but I enjoy watching the ensuing fun!

    BTW, my work area is far too messy for me to share pictures of!

    Best to all,

    George
