  • Now is this a nice clean and safe shop or what ?

    I saw this and thought about my old pals missing floor . I mean fun is fun but I would consider this dangerous what do you guys think? Busy workshops get untidy as does mine but this is not acceptable for safety sake Alistair

    I'd be much more worried about the open electrical system at the back than the state of the floor...

      There is not much Green showing! Looks like there is lots of room to pile stuff.

          I can see the floor in spots, that's not that bad!

          My view for floors has always been if you can get from point a to point b without tripping and the area you stand to operate a tool isn't hazardous, a little mess everywhere else can be tolerated

            That may be an oil can.

            Make it fit.
            You can't win and there is a penalty for trying!

              Alistair are you thinking of bidding on this machine? I think it would make for a good rehabilitation project for the winter.

                I like to see photos of filthy shops. They make me feel better about my shop which has currently relapsed to it's 50% caca state and is heading downhill fast. It becomes clean about once or twice a year, usually winter. It's not really filth but mostly tools and junk piled up because I can't seem to put things away while I'm working.

                  I think if you really want to sell a machine, you need to clean it and the area around it. It just conveys the image that you took care of the machine.

                    If you can stand flat footed in front of the machine,that's good enough
                    I just need one more tool,just one!

                      the writeup about it demonstrates that the shop is as organized as his mind.

                        I've worked in dirtier shops than that.
                        (I went to an interview once, and it was like walking thru a Haunted House!!!)
                        the only thing that concerns me about those pictures is the open electrical mess on the side of the mill.

                            The machine is missing a lot of parts. Maybe they're on the floor somewhere.

                              The mess does not suit my minds eye. I get cluttered up when doing a project like everyone does but usually will try through out the project to return stuff to their allocated spaces and also clean up well and hoover going every quarter of an hour despite good dust collectors. it comes to a head when there is a tripping hazard from clutter. I also agree that when selling you should have the common sense (it seems to me) to make the item for sale look as well as can be expected. It is after all what most right minded people would do. Would you sell your car with photo's of it covered in mud? My biggest problem is to keep using my workbench for a shelf when I need to use it it is more trouble moving everything and I end up using a wooden board on a stool or something just as daft. Also a good point about the machines exposed wiring, I did name the post stating dangerous workshop imho Al
