    Bridgeport Series 1 with slotter head, either a CB or 2m antenna, some type of torch, tilting angle base, WD40 cans, some pine boards, electrical cabinet, some other crap.

    I see useful things. The odd one out is the POS they are all leaning against or sitting on.

    I thought that I was the only one with that type of CB antenna next to my mill. It seems like it belongs there to me.

    The wood does not really belong, though I've milled wood before. So maybe it does belong.

    I'd say the blow torch is not appropriate. If it is like grandpa's kerosene torch it makes a BIG flame that heats everything in it's path. Not a good idea inside a shop now that precise torches with pencil nozzles are available.

    I see some strange finned / heat sink looking thing right in front of the motor. Not sure what that is. Looks like a Tap Matic head on some large taper and a tilting table sitting up side down.

    Besides......... what kind of game are we playing??

    I think you're still leaving us in the dark. Define what "belongs" or "does not belong". As in don't belong with a B'port or don't belong in a metal shop? Or don't fit in with the task of milling? I know some have a hate on for WD40 and won't have it around at all and would be high on their own list of "don't belong in a metal shop" where others would suggest that two cans is only a couple of months supply.

    About the only thing I can see which certainly does not belong is the antenna. The rest could all be justified based on the scope of "does not belong".

    I see a post that doesn't make any sense.

    Belongs, BP, Vise & the tilting attachment on top of the vise, behind the BP is that part of a duplicating or CNC BP? WD40, antenna . I say doesn't belong is the torch, the 1x boards & the white sheet goods could go either way.
