Finished my new mini mechanical  workshop last week

That's pretty cool space. What is that red paneled unit behind the bench grinder?

What kind of work do you do in here? Doesn't seem like just a carpenters bench, nor an electronics space. Do you do specialized machinist work? I came from a very rural farm life and love a well setup workshop,

The red paneled unit is just a deposit for nails and and cable fasteners, It was the only place left to hang it, upon it, if you take a very close look, you will see my Beolit 505Smile. What you cant see is the 3rd wall (the room is a triangle) it is filled up with storage boards holding paints, thinners, cleaners, abrasives and whatever you need around the house.

I use the shop mostly for maintenance of my tools and once in a while turning parts for printing machines. It also comes in handy for making small parts for B&O vintage equipment, The small lathe comes in handy there

I have a big workshop with bigger machines which I am selling now, so this small workshop is for my retirement, as a mechanical engineer I cant live without it Big Smile

Next step later this year will be a mini mill

My house is build on a corner lot, one street is at 15 + -  degree angle to the other, and in that corner I had to put the shop

Nice little work space. Keep that lathe bed covered if your grinding or try and move that grinder further away if you have the space.
