PHOTOS SPEAK A THOUSAND WORDS????????

When I look at anything on the net I love to see photos, because when I am looking at one thing and see something else in the picture and think ohhhhhhhhh thatís how its done.
Like the thread on grinding an end mill, not only did I get some good info but looking at the pic, I saw the grinder he was using, the grinding wheel ECT, its all good stuff.
So put me and other members some pictures up on here of your workshop!
Remember we all have to start somewhere and what better place to start (here bbs.homeshopmachinist.net) so get those pictures flowing.
Hereís one to start it off.

You need to clean up H4p, this is what your lathe should look like. ;)

white walls and a fancy brass doorknob would last about 5 seconds in my pit of filth, i mean shop. :)

it is so bad at present that there is no way i would ever post a photo. how about someone starts a "my shop is worse-looking than yours" thread to make me feel better. i DID finally find the roof leak and fix it. thank goodness the leak wasn't over anything important.

you asked for it.

here's the lathe.

here's the rest of the shop.

got a new wide-angle lens for the nikon recently -- this is even cropped
a little! what a toy. anyway, the light way in the back is a bridgeport
looking for attention. the 'thing' you see on the bench is the exercise
bike I posted about a month or so ago -- the two aluminum rings are
the races / homebrew bearing that was suggested here (works great!).

sadly, that 'prototype' is still sitting in the same spot as a month ago. :)

the grate on the horses is for the wife's climbing weeds.

the whole shop is +/- 1000 sf. wife thinks I have too much play space
(which isn't true!) so I plan to close a wall up between the concrete
columns you see -- squishing me down to 500sf.

nice shop Tony i like how you have things high up, like the compressor.
mine is on the floor and thus taking up floor space.

Dirty, oily tools (within reason) just means they are being used.

If it's not over anything important, why bother to fix it?

:eek:

Maybe you need to re-evaluate your priorities.
