I think I saw some place where you could fit maybe a small dremmel tool.

You should move everything into the house and live in the shop.

I like your small capstan lathe. I wish shipping was cheaper between the UK and US, you have some really good machines over there that aren't available over here. Such as power hack saws and smaller shapers.

You have a Lorch!

Great stuff, Alistair. I have the use of a Lorch lathe too, a fine machine indeed. You're the first person I've run into that also has one. But I didn't know they made capstan lathes too.

Alistair,

After seeing your shop (If I was interesed in woodworking I would be a touch jealous) I take back the "yea" on the office. You can't afford to waste the space. Why don't you build yourself a podium on casters that will hold an open book on top, a small reading light and a cupboard with doors below to store reference materials. Put it on locking casters and use a stool. Oh yeah, and a spot for a cup of tea.

Where are those fabulous metal working tools you bought not very long ago? You know metal working tools need a warm place to live too. Your shop seems a bit segregated. How about equal rights for machine tools!

Prima-donna... My shop works for a living. There are chips in the pans.

Nice and clean, looks unused.... HA.. Looks like a magazine for good-housekeeping.. Plant a few flowers in next to some of them tools. Maybe some fancy wall paper..

(okay, I'll quit ribbing you)

Mine have a few beer cans next to them..

My harley is that clean, I had a pretty young girl polishing.. Whoo hoo what a sight.

I support Spence in his call for some shots of the metal working machinery; so c'mon Alistair, show us the foundations and work in progress for the metal shop! A shot or two of the S&B and Fritz would be nice too. We need to have balance here between how it looks now and what it has to live up to!!

Ragarsed and guys I have not been at all well lately, as you know I have Parkinson's disease and the movements are getting worse I have noticed it worse this year.I am afraid to say the progress on my workshop extension is sufferring because of it.The funny thing is I have more trouble at night especially during the night so am not slleeping well with the violent movements of my body especially arms and legs this causes me to lose a lot of sleep so that's why I can't show you the machine shop because I am way behind the machines are sitting where they were when I bought them but maybe next year if I get my strength back, for now I will have to do what I can with the woodshop extension.Currently about an hour or so a week still I am on new medication and hope that gets me sorted but so far its been a bad patch Also noticed this year my typing is getting really bad my fingers will not go to the correect keys no matter what I am currently writing and then cutting and pasting to myself in an email spell checking then sending it back the same way so bear with me at the moment as I am on a big low regards Alistair Ps thank god for friends Like my pal Dave Thrud

Alistair tells me he is finishing his woodshop first. The beautiful Smart & Brown lathe and the German mill with the NT30 taper spindle have been tucked away until his metal shop can be finished. He is going to have a really well equipt shop when it is done. The Smart & Brown is an awesome machine - he was unbelievably lucky to find it - came with chucks and toolpost too!

I recently acquired a Lorch ww lathe, probably 1930s vintage. Have you any idea where I might be able to get copies of any paperwork on such a lathe? Best, trumpeterjack

Your link needs to look like the ones above to work. I think it has to end in .jpg

Great looking addition,
It is interesting to look at constuction practises in other areas of the world.
