    If it's stored in a Flammables cabinet let the insurance inspector tell you if it's ok. You can also ask for a rider on your policy allowing use of a home shop, if they care. Might cost $5 a year. They are in the business of assessing risk and covering with policies... use them.

  • Proper storage of lubricating oil and solvents? (Have insurance inspection)

    So, I have a real horror show coming, an insurance inspection of my shop in the basement of my multifamily building. Lots of things you can do in your own home are verboten in multi-unit dwellings! I'm trying to hide my worst sins, like welding equipment. What about gallon jugs of lube oil? is it considered as bad as volatile accelerants like solvents? I have a heavy steel cabinet, I think it's one of those old paint mixing tables. But its not vented to the outside like code often calls for. IDK whether to put a few cans of solvent type stuff there to show I'm being good, or get it all out and possibly leave the impression I'm hiding it since anyone with a brain knows a workshop has solvents around!

    Now I have to go and disassemble my vent hood...
Working...
