most of you know I recently moved
into a new house and it seems like it took forever to get my shop
setup. I wanted to post some pictures of the new shop, since after all
it's my favorite part of the house. hahahaha
I'd like to post updated pictures but it's so messy these days I'd be embarrassed.
The 4x36 belt sander was a recent addition to the shop. It comes in
handy for a lot of things. My intention when I got it was to use it for
knifemaking but the 4x36 doesn't really work all that well for it. For
one you can't do plunge cuts on it. So after reading Wayne Goddard's
book The $50 Knife Workshop I've decided to build my own 1x42 belt
sander to start and then a 2x72 in the future.
And here's the other leg of my L shaped bench. Here you can see my
Harbor Freight 8x12 metal lathe, my new Harbor Freight mini-mill, the
drill press that I converted for milling a couple of years ago, and a
bunch of other things. hahaha The mess on the end of the bench is
the cylinder head for my motorcycle.
I also bought a Harbor Freight metal cutting bandsaw a while back as
well. Man I don't know how I ever got by without one. hahaha
