  • I'm with you on the bench space Jerry. I just about choked at the post above suggesting you ditch the bench in favor of a few small spots dotted around the area.

And I want LOTS of bench space..... I want "clock" space, not "watch" space. Maybe not "tower clock" space, but......
      Not familiar with any of those machines or Clickspring's machines. You should post some pictures of them because they look like kitchen appliances in your drawings

      • There were questions about wall and under bench storage

        Wall 1, which will be partly covered by rollaround


        Wall 2, which will be blown away but would have been over the Rivett


        Under the bench (with some occupants being used elsewhere)


        Under the lathe (cutters, turret, small stock, press, etc)

        They are bigger than many kitchen appliances. The rivett base is 56" long....think restaurant stove. the 7 x 14" lathe CS has would fit on it crosswise.

          • Been messing with layout ideas, and finally came up with what may be an improvement on the prior versions. Generally uses space at least twice. A little more crowded by the bench....and in front of the tool wall. Nothing is perfect.

            • I have a head for the Lewis mill or something really similar. Pay shipping and it is yours.
