Default My Home Machine Shop

Hey guys / gals:

First time poster, long time reader - enjoy your forum.

I have a small home shop, mainly geared toward metalwork / machining / welding and repair. I always joke and call it my 'boat'. Money needs to be sunk into something, might as well be in what I love.

Hope these pics don't turn out to big, posting them from another forum.

Anyway, thanks.

Glenn

Just installed this over the weekend. 1958 Grob NS-21" Bandsaw





1980's Daewoo 20" x 60" lathe






Homemade H-Press





Homemade 15HP rotary phase converter for 3 phase power






Early 70's J-Head Bridgeport with DRO



Saber Drilling Machine






Little Wilton wet saw



My favorite vice - 8" Heinrich drill press vise






Reloading area / jamming area





Welding area / tooling storage





Drops






Cheapy brake

Hi Glenn,

Welcome to Garage Journal!

I checked out your photos on Practical Machinist and you have a nicely set up shop. I suspect PM doesn't allow linking from their photo album to other websites. If you upload your shop photos to Garage Journal they'll show up in your posts when you link to them here.

I need a decent wirefeed, this was bought to finish a project.



Oxy/ Acc - I find these handy at certain times - These use to do gas welding with before I had a tig, used a small jewlers torch for sheetmetal



reloading area - someone once told me how boring it would be, I told them I sort nuts and bolts, so it should actually be pretty exciting - It is.



Cheapy Wilton wet saw, but has served me well for a few years now - can't live without it.



My absolute favorite vice - Heinrich 8" and 6" (not shown, used on my tapping machine)



1940's Abrasive 1-1/2 surface grinder and Homemade Tapping Machine with double reduction shaft / 3 phase plug reversing and relay controlled reversing pedal. 125 RPM with instant reversing. No clamping of the part needed, just hold the vise and hit the pedal.





Homemade de-burring station with flip up table and vise for use with 4-1/2" cutoff wheel.

Probabaly the most used set-up in the shop.



Homemade welding table with tool storage



Thanks a bunch guys, love the site.

Glenn

Not sure what is going on,

I downloaded my photos to an album her at GJ, then posted them once again in this thread. It basically gave me the auto resopnse that the reply will not be posted until approved by the admin.

Anyway, sorry for all the confusion.

Bullnerd,
hahaaha - thanks for getting the boat reference. I tell people this is my retirement fund. I have a machinist friend that has had a shop for forty years, I bought similar equipment to his and paid the same price on the machines as he did forty years ago. The way I look at it, old iron holds it's value, so in a way it's probably a better investment than the stock market. But, that's not the reason for the shop, I love metal work and always have. My dad bought me my first craftsman toolset at 6 years old, he got tired of me borrowing his tools I guess.

Pat, thanks for helping a computer illiterate guys out!

I travel the globe frequently, so my haven is working weekends in my shop building, welding, machining things, making a few extra bucks and always learning along the way.

Best regards,

Glenn

Your electrical situation is giving me fits, but I love the homemade / vintage feel. I've got the same drill press, they just don't make em like they used to.

hahaha thanks, I really do need to clean up the third world electrical wiring in my shop. You start off small and just keep adding and adding, and soon you have wires, extension cords and wire strips all over the place.

Go to your album and right click on a photo and select "copy image address"

Then go to your message - you can open two tabs so you can go back and forth - and click the little yellow picture with the mountains and a box will come up for the image address. Paste the address from the clipboard into the line there (see below).



Do the same for the next photo and so forth. You can put your text between the images.

Not sure what you tried to do in the first post, but nothing shows up for me.
