        My first and most important tool - carried daily for 58 years now:



        Ok, like Lassie, there have been successors, so this isn't really the first - that one got lost at a beach keg party in Santa Barbara, 1963.

        One of my newest - an hour meter on the shop light circuit:



        It now reads around 530, indicating that I spend about 20 hours a week there.

        From the kitchen to the shop:



        Where workbench space really comes from:

              Not at home shop, but the owner is nice enough to let me work on my own stuff after hours.

                          Facing up some fabricated marine engine mounting feet. These are someone's homebrew effort done some years ago, good solid fabrications but because they weren't machined after welding nothing was flat and eventually all the studs holding them to the sides of the crankcase had sheared.

                          One of the feet upside down in the mill, facing the bottom mounting face:-



                          The top corner should register against a narrow lip on the side of the crankcase. It didn't, I had to build up the corner with weld and reface it:-



                          Then the face which bolts to the side of the crankcase had to be done:-



                          All done without disturbing the setup on the mill table.

                          Finally some new double-ended studs in 5/8" Whitworth had to be made up:-

                            Muffler furnace. We use it for D2 forging and also some heat treating.

                              I have a Swiss Army knife, a Wenger, that my brother bought for me years ago when he was touring Europe. I used to carry it everywhere but after almost loosing it once, I only use it around the house.

                              I am building (almost done) a heavily insulated room inside my garage that has my lathe and mill in it. I will be heating it electrically since I heat the house with propane and the costs are fairly equivalant.

                              Since there doesn't seem to be a 240 kill-a-watt, I need a way to tell how much the heat is costing me. I live in Northern Michigan and it gets cold and stays cold.

                              A hour meter would work if I tie it into the line voltage thermostat and then do the math running my 1500 W baseboard heater. You gave me just the solution I needed.

                              Where did you get your meter?
