    Welcome from EL Paso, TX .
    Ontario is a big province.
    I miss my fly-in trips from Chapleau and Nakina.

    A smaller Harig 6x12 is also a nice SG to fit in a small shop.

      Welcome, Iโ€™d up my security a bit, โ€˜itโ€™s not funny when it gets emptied out.

        Welcome from another Ontarian.

        Are you also the gentleman on Canadian hobby metalworkers site that makes fly reels? Different usernames. https://canadianhobbymetalworkers.co...ly-reels.1651/

          New here so I thought I would introduce myself. I frequent one other forum which lately seems to be only active in the live steam side (which isn't my thing) so I figured I'd branch out a little.

          I predominately make fishing reels in my home shop

          Very cool, will look forward to seeing your projects.. Welcome. JR

            Welcome RSG! It is always nice to have another member.

            I also have a small, crowded shop in my garage. I have had my shop there for about ten years, since I retired, and am still working on fitting everything that I already have. There are a number of old threads on various tips on organizing a shop: you may want to use the SEARCH to find and read them.

            Don't worry too much about the grumps, the current crop are really OK. And, in their own way, they are usually helpful. In the past we have had worse.

            I too would encourage you to add your location to the information about yourself. The present forum format does not have a designated place for it in the posts but the tag line (signature line) is a good place for it. It can be helpful sometimes to know where a person is when answering a question. That reminds me to check my own tag line.

            Anyway, welcome and we await your posts.

            And if you look REAL close at an analog signal,
            You will find that it has discrete steps.

                  Thanks for the tips Paul! I'll add my location.

                  As for small shops and organising, it can be an art....๐Ÿ˜„

                      Thanks! While the windows and doors are very secure the lock is where things go south. Barrel locks can be "spun" in minutes allowing them to just walk right in. That's why I built this actuated lock so it's on the inside. Makes me feel better knowing if I'm away they'll have a very hard time getting in.

                        Iโ€™m so paranoid I park a 4 ton excavator in front of the door, Iโ€™m sure the Cummins starting would be noticed at 3am ( seems the preferred time to steal other peoples stuff)

                          Mark, there must be some sort of code that these guys follow as it always between 3:00 and 3:30am around here too! ๐Ÿ™„

                                Canuck here.
                                There is a wealth of knowledge on this forum but it comes at the price of some very verbose know it all's and a lot of grumpy curmudgeons and over critical perfectionists so I would recommend a thick skin and careful validation of a lot of what is stated here.
                                It's a great place, lumps and all.
                                Cheers,
                                Jon
                                Wot? you mean this isn't the verbose know it all and curmudgeon forum?
                                in Toronto Ontario - where are you?
