    Default Closet Shops

    I am looking for examples, plans and pictures of what implementations others have done in the way of "closet shops".

    In the past, it was a popular subject with many people living in apartments or rental property.

    Thanks for what info you can provide.

    My shop has long since come out of the closet....

    But when it was...

    When I first moved from home I bought a Grizz 7x12 mini lathe. Did many, many mods to it to get it somewhat usable. This set on top of my dresser. On the wall behind I had a tap and drill poster that kept me from getting an oil stripe along the wall.

    On my old computer desk I has one of the little harbor freight $35 drill presses. Worked pretty well.

    I eventually bought a HF micro mill (What an god-awful piece of crap) that I turned cnc (Made it almost usable).

    Chips were not much of a problem. Always vacuumed after I was finished. I also had one of the circulating window fans in the window that kept the smoke from cutting oil down.
