( I just checked - came out weird, not what I expected, but can be viewed)

I finally took some pics. I used Photobucket but really didn't know what I was doing. Don't know how to make the photos display with this post, so just using the URL.

If this works, it should show the Lagun a few guys doubted that I had. It has two axis DRO and 3 ph VFD.. Also, on the welding table, is the chi-com draw bar that gave me fits with a stuck R8 tool. The 11" Logan lathe also has DRO and is running off 3 ph VFD. Mounted is the 6 1/4" Bison adj-tru chuck and Bison live center.

One photo shows some of the things I make, like the receiver hitch pins and the spring loaded tapping follower. In the mill vise is the speed wrench I made in school. The 6061 balls are 1 7/16" dia, made from 1 1/2" dia round stock in a BP using an indexing head.

If the shop looks messy, you should've seen it before I cleaned it up. Its only 8"x12". I have to move the HF band saw outside when I want to work and the Miller welder is inside my wife's garden shed.

"Its only 8"x12"."
WOW, that's a bunch of machines in less than 1 sq. ft. of space!!!
THANX RICH

People say I'm getting crankier as I get older. That's not it. I just find I enjoy annoying people a lot more now. Especially younger people!!!

Johnny,

For each picture you can use the "direct" link shown in the screen capture from your album. Just past each one when using the "insert image" button or tags.

But albums work just fine too. Thought you might want to know for future use.

Try this.
Replace the red underlined text with the direct link information that photobucket gives you. Everything else must be the same including the th_ that is doubled underlined. You will have to add that to your text. Save it off in a notepad file somewhere so that you can copy and paste it into the posting.

This creates a small photo in the text of your post and then when it is clicked on, a new window will appear with a larger photo. This smaller photo loads a bit quicker than a full sized one and if the photo is larger than the text field it wont force the reader to scroll left and right to get all of the post.

This is a bit more friendly for those who still use modems or have much slower internet service.

Outside all of that, nice shop you have there. Hope to see more fun projects from you in the future.

Thanks guys for the help with the pics., and yes, a lot of machines in an 8"x12" shop, you see, they're very small machines. :D

Johnny, I'm amazed that You have that much tooling in 96 square feet and it doesn't look crowded or unhandy.
Seriously , that is a nice collection of eq.

Doc, getting the mill in there was a lot of fun, but nobody got injured. There's not any space for much movement. The mill is set in a corner 45* angle to either wall. Seemed the most space saving location. I have to move the HF band saw outside in order to do any work. Just today, I replaced the mickey mouse wheels with some 6" Dia. wheels on one end and 4" swiveling wheels on the other. Ended two years struggling to move it about. Noticed the difference tonight when I moved it inside. Since we live in a mobile home park (euphemism for a trailer park), so space is very limited. I built the 8'X12' shed a few years ago, wired it for 220v, 100 amp service. We made the floor of thick reinforced concrete to support the Lagun which, with vise and other accessories, must weigh just south of 3k lbs. We are looking to buy a conventional house with a 3 or 4 garage this summer so I can set up a Haas or two. We live in So. Calif., so a house in a good neighborhood, even in today's depressed market, is pretty pricey.

Please do yourself a favor and keep those collets closed up due to proximity to the grinder. :) Leaving them like that is just asking for worn out collet chucks.

Very awsome shop, I like that little cubbyhole system for your chucks and other stuff.. I got lots of big bulky things that are HEAVY and need somewhere to live. my current rack system is only strong enough to hold them at the bottom shelf however, heh

Yea, he was going to mail us out little post-it notes to stick on our monitors but decided to put captions on the images instead. :)

I just placed the collets on that shelf next to the grinder for the purpose of the photo, The normally reside on the shelf the right of the mill. Photo shopped? Get bloody real, it was all I could to get the pics up incorrectly. Some guys were kind enough to fix things for me. I'm at a loss, first I was accused of not having the mill, so I post some pics and the new tune is "Photo Shopped"! Whatever.

Slow down there pardner, it was a joke. Perhaps you didn't notice who the poster was, and who was also posting on the stuck tool thread.

Besides, the part that looked photoshopped was the draw bar, everyone knows that they don't have that collar... ;-)

Guys, my bad. No excuse, but I must've gotten up on the wrong side of the bed this a.m. About half way to work, I realized the humor. Had it been Photo "Shopped", that HF grinder, which I still have to do some work on to get rid of the wobble, would've been replaced with a nice shiny Baldor, the mill would've been CNC'd, and the tired old Logan would have had, at least, a "rattle can rebuild". Sorry I got a tad testy, that's not my style, I promise. Anyway, you guys have given me a load of help these past few weeks and it is truly appreciated. Actually, I expected to get beaten up over the note I made about making balls from round 6061 bar on the BP with just an indexing head and a single point tool configured, as best I can describe it, as a boring bar with the cutter turned inward rather than outward. Thing is, its true. The balls on my vise's speed wench were made that way. It was in a class at Fullerton J.C. in Orange Co., Calif. There were only three of us in that class. One guy did the balls, another the hub, except for the 3/4" hex hole which was done by the first guy on the EDM where he worked, and I got stuck with the spokes. Twelve spokes for each one of us, threaded on both ends. That was 36 spokes, 72 threading operations. Actually a few more than that counting the ones I butchered up. At night I'd dream about threading those damned things. Ended up with a pair of nice wrenches though.

Mcgyver, the drawbar table actually doubles as a 5'x5' welding table. Its all steel and the top, as I recall, is 3/16" plate. It's another freebie that was headed for the scrap yard, as were my lathe and mill. I was quick to snatch it up. Bloody thing must weigh a metric tonne, but the price was right. :D People see it and ask if I weld. I look them straight in the eye and tell them I'm much better at machining then welding, and my machining sucks. So tagging that as a drawbar table ain't too far off.
