  • Got shop Painted

    Well as I said last week I cleaned and painted my shop. Lots of hard work moving every thing out that I could pick up and shuffling things around to paint and clean. Every thing got washed down with Simple Green and wiped off. walls ceiling lights and all tools and machines . Painted bottom of walls a chocolate brown and a off white on top . All a latex enamel paint in gloss. Turned out real good I think finished up Sat night. Here are some photos as promised.this is the inspection and supplies area

    This is the grinding area

    Lathe area

    The mill area

    Hope you enjoy one more to come

      Nice job, can hardly tell you did as the machines look ready to spin.....I think you'll be happy with the brown lower, that or green seem to hide dirt the best, not that dirt looks like it's allowed to buildup for long in your digs.......LOL

            That looks great. I could even see floor so it must be time to add new equipment...

              I thought it looked pretty good when it was white Lane. It seems it is always cleaner then mine and I just got done cleaning for company. I don't imagine you want to spread paint up my way per chance? Any way good job and I am a little jealous. Jay

                I think it looks real good too Lane. I like the two tone paint scheme also. I'd like to paint mine but I don't feel like moving everything out from the walls to paint.

                  RE: Painting the shop

                  Lane...fantastic job! It must have been a real back breaker to move all of that equipment around but worth the effort. From what I have seen the two tone scheme seems to be very popular way back to the early days. I worked in several shops that were dark and light green. The tool and die plant was painted that way until we got a new plant manager, who wanted to improve morale. He had us paint it light brown and an off yellow, sort of ocre. It really perked up the place and made the light green machines stand out more.
                  Thanks for the pix.

                      All that moving I call my exercise program . I do something like that a least once a year to stay in shape. beats going to gym are working out and I hate walking.
