View Full Version : Shop posters, etc.

I was just wondering if any of you guys have any good suggestions for posters/stuff on the walls of your shop. Like on the ceiling- I got stuff hanging on the rest of it, but the ceiling is kinda not covered- I'm thinking a tap/drill chart and a speeds/feeds chart (btw, where are some good ones?), anything I'm missing?

Hmm, Charts, charts I have used are drill size charts, giving me the decimal size of all drills, fractions, numbers and letters.

That is a very interesting shop. Thanks for the link.

You have several beautifully done projects and models. Your workmanship puts many of us to shame.

I make my own from what is freely available on the net. With the right software it is easy to do, but can be time consuming. I lay them out the way I want them and save them to disc. Then I take the disc to Office Max or Kinkos and have them print and laminate them. They have the ability to print much larger charts than I can do with an inkjet.

All good links--Thanks. The problem I have in the old part of the shop is not having walls that I can hang stuff on. It's all storage with the middle open. The ceiling is too high to put anything I'd try and read. :D I've gotten use to keeping loose leaf binders all around. I have most of the charts in page protectors. I also keep lots of other good info in the binders that I'm less likely to recall. Like where I store certain tools and parts. :eek: :D

Hey Old-Biker, nice shop. What's that machine with the chain drive under the cover?

Try www.bay-com.com, an advertiser in HSM. They have a good drill-tap-pipethread chart with a bunch of extra anecdotes and misc. information scattered around any blank space on the chart. I have two, on in my shop and one in my office at work.

-no connection, just a satisfied customer.
