Nice work and nice shop. Let us know how your fire extinguisher works out. I have about 70 of those containers. The local Coca Cola plant gave a friend of mine a big trailer load of them. I was thinking about making a weed sprayer with one.

That looks just about like my level of (dis) organization. When's the last time you closed the top lid on the tool chest? http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif

Hmmm, I like the H2O extinguisher, kinda. I have a bunch of the cornelius kegs. I use them for making my homemade beer.

Now do you keep a head of air on the water to be ready for use? Or do you hook it up to a constant air supply while the fire is burning? Seems the pressure would drop dramatically if just a head of air as the water level dropped.

Nice usable shop, good to have alot of floor space and walkin room. JRouche

THE FLOOR... THE ROOM... You clearly don't have enough machines.

I got past that point long ago.

Looks good, clean well lit work area.

thanks.

the air/water container holds 80 psi. 3/4 full of water and 1/4 air at 80 psi is more than enough to empty it dry with a good spray.

I actually use them for running water when camping. never have used on fire. just figured it would be good to keep it full in the basement.

Nice basement shop!!!

I'd jack off a wild buffalo to have that much space and the machines you got. http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//wink.gif

Nice shop thanks for sharing. Gosh, to have that much room must be really nice. (If my tiny shop gets much more crowded I will have to work from outside)
