If I had a shop like that I would let ugly mates like that guy in the pic's in the shop.

Used to know a guy looked just like that one.
His wife had their wedding photo's on the mantlepiece facing the wall because he frightened the dog.


Hasn't Blodwyn got a green dress ?

If that the world's best looking pedestal grinder behind the lovely ladt then I'm twice jealous but... to her other side well, you're not going to tell me that's a spot welder half hidden? Isn't that cheating when you're a machinist? But they are fast aren't they!

-Gerry

P.S. How long did the cleanup actually take???
P.P.S. Nice shop with nary a piece of Eastern Magic in sight. Must have taken you a while.

The dog has that look of pain because he is sitting on the pile of chips Alistair hid under the dog before taking the pictures. ;<)

Alistair, that's a nice, well equipped shop. But it's so CLEAN that it's almost disgusting. Send me some money, and I'll send you a box of assorted chips, dust, swarf, stringy curls of pvc, oily brass, some cast iron dust, and to sweeten the deal, I'll throw in some prime sawdust, freshly cut.

Send enough money, and I'll deliver it in person, and help spread it around your shop, so it will look more like mine.

Good looking shop and family Alistair.

As I have told you, my wife's name is Bronwyn which is some what of an oddity here in the states so I enjoy hearing your wife's name published. Bronwyn is Welsh, so she says, so I dont know the similarities but hey!!

Clean looking shop Mister! JRouche

It looks like it doesn't trust you either. :D


At last thanks Frank you made my day I said I was never a green fanatic very few of my machines inc my much larger woodshop are green.Alistair see Evan I told you so
Well, since you bring it up I will once again show some of the very nice equipment you have in the shop(s).

I must admit that since I have been taking meds similar to yours that the color green is starting to grow on me. That was a metaphorical comment by the way. I am beginning to appreciate it a little more. You might have noted that I painted all my deck railings and stair risers green. :D Dark green.

oops Evan that's a bad sign pal you need to get seasickness tablets that's what cured me.:D:D as said I only painted tools green which were originally green and I liked then to keep things as original as possible.Also most manufacturers seemed to prefer green at one time I don't know whay how many machines do we seem that are bright red,orange or yellow for example.

Yeah...that clean shop has been bothering me too.

I bet I know what is going on....the shop is clean and presentable because it is HER SHOP and Alistair is only allowed to visit when he has been very, very good. ;<))))

Alistair if I were you I would stay on the good side of the wife, it is not everybody who has a good shop and great wife! When was the last time you bought her a new tool instead of just flowers and candy like the rest of the wives get? Might I suggest a really expensive machine tool to let her know that you love her. ;<)

Alistair Hosie,

Very nice collection of tools! How about showing some pictures of the things you have made with them?
