Pretty nice, there Ray! I just stumbled upon this forum, signed up right away, and love this section! I love seeing how other folks set up their spaces, especially when they are limited like mine (and apparently, mostly everyone else's!).

Planning on getting some of my shop up within the next week now- looking for constructive criticism on how I have it laid out- I know there has to be a better way.

By the way- what Series E-Type is that? Judging by the front frame supports, I'm guessing a Series II?

GF Is that a 3 in one tool on the Sun cabinet, if so how in the world do you use the stomp shear part. That is a nice looking English wheel can you give me some details on it.

It's not a stomp shear Fins. It cuts by pulling on the lever arm. It works well for the type of sheet metal that I need cut; mostly 18 and 20 gauge CRS.

The wheel is HF and was on sale a few years ago for $139. Heck you can't build one for that price -- even from scrap steel. I finessed it a bit and it works very well. There are many sites on the net that show how to improve the basic design. I also bought the HF anvils, and also made my own custom anvils for it as well.

Thank you Neal! yes, it's a 1970 series II with AC/PS/PB and the lower rear gear ratio.

Spent all day cleaning up the garage. Body dust and grime everywhere, so it was time for a good wipe down and insecticide spray in the corners and along the floor edges. Just finished an hour ago and decided to try the night pics again.









Now it'll stay clean for about a week --   :beerdude:
