Atomic Shop Update: Floors Are Done

The pace is still slow, but there is still a pace… After getting the concrete work done in preparation for the Bendpak flush mount lift, I was finally in a place to deal with the floors. In the office space that is connected to this shop, you might remember that I used a Legacy Industrial product.

Jack Stand Storage

Jack stands are a total pain is the ass to have around… I guess that’s why so many numbskulls are killed every year by their absence – they are just sick of dealing with them. “BB767″ however, is here to save lives.
