  • TV in garage ??

    I was given a 40 something inch smart TV recently. I already have a tv in the family and bed rooms so I thought about hanging it up in the garage. My garage is unheated and has the typical wild temp swings.

    Any thoughts on if it would hold up out there ???

    Yes insulate and use the hot water heater for heat

      The humidity may cause corrosion of electronic components.

        I wouldn't do it. But, for a different reason.

        No radio, no TV, no distractions where I work with power tools.

            I have an old tube TV in my shop with the digital "Rabbit Ears" antennae.
            It was previously sitting outside, on the back porch for years.
            It still works great, despite the dust, dirt and temp. swings.
            I keep it on mainly as 'background noise' during Football season.

              Ex-coworker has three peculiarly short fingers on his left hand. TV, football, and a radial arm saw is a very bad combination.

                Curious, just what would be so entertaining on the TV?

                  Garage is the BEST place for the TV.

                  So long as you never plug it in...... If that is still a temptation when it's out there, just put it on CL.

                  "Kardashian" sounds like it must be an adjective. probably not a good one, even if it IS longer than 4 letters

                    Environmentally stick it in there and see how it goes, if you leave it on stand-by the internal PSU will generate some internal heat and should fend off some condensation.

                    From the point of distraction a man's got to know his limitations, those who recommend no distractions from machines know theirs, I have Radio, 200 Disc CD Changer 2 PCs and TV in my workshop and can still count to 10 with my shoes on ;-)

                    My TV also runs as a big screen for my CNC Mill, one of my workshop PCs and a monitor for a camera for close-up views of machining on a big display.

                    If your mind can only cope with the job in hand then have no "distractions".

                    if your mind can cope with your work and still wants additional stimulation then listen to radio, music or even TV and dip in and out of visual input as is safe and suits you.

                    Or you could just listen to the "OOH! OOH! DON'T DO THAT! IT'S NOT SAFE! I WOULDN'T DO IT" bollocks from those who spout it copiously based on their own limitations or spurious unsubstantiated beliefs.

                    The decision is yours,

                              There's always some tosser that thinks Health and Safety rules for protecting big companies from the stupidity and incompetence of their employees must be applied in home workshops.
                              Whilst I'm a big fan of safe practices I really hate pointless knob-heads who think they can tell what's safe for you by reading your posts.
                              If a TV isn't safe in a workshop then neither is another worker, they might distract you far more than a TV!
