    Thanks man, just had my friend over and he was cleaning his 201t and I was pottering about. He said how nice it is to have workspace and tools at his convienience. Had the radio on and a little storage heater and we were golden. I'm making a conscious effort to keep it clean and tidy and organised. But it's hard as stuff does just appear and accumulated in any space. Still need to fit a pillar drill, vice, grinder and linisher in there for my activities. Gonna need a bigger shed soon lol.

    Haven't done it yet, but.....I was thinking junker camping trailer, big as you can find for scrap price, poof, instant shop/shed. Gut it, make sure the roof don't leak, I mean heck, tarp the sucker, cheap and easy is the idea here, run some power to it. No property tax increase. Jack it/level it on blocks cuz you know the tires will be rotten anyway. Cut a big door and have a ramp, at least big enough to get say a riding mower up into it.

    I'd have to spend two days cleaning to show pics of my shop. But I can show some of it. I call it "the compound". Other than the beer fridge, people seem to like my air tool hanger best.

    Put a drop of oil and hang em up. I figure it keeps dust out and saves space in the toolbox. Save your leaky air fittings and build yerself one cheap !

    Old horseshoes aren't just lucky, they're great hooks for cords and hoses. Functional folk-art !

    My favorite, smoking dragon or not... Kozy ain't no lie ! In this little tool room, my problem is usually getting rid of the heat. Not keeping it !

    Took a few snaps today after I got home from work with my new (to me) record number 23 workshop vice. Absolute monster of a piece of metal. Also the inside of my toolbox for anyone who is interested. Just the one at home my works ones are a little different. More machinist tools.

    Thanks! Living large in the fact that that thing is humongous, besides that it was a real bargain, cost me £40 and it came with some fixings :)

    Stephen, those pics could have been taken in my shop. Stuff all over everywhere. I get a lot done but have to play a lot of "Rubik's Cube" whenever I need to reposition something...

    I need to get hold of a toolbox extension. All of these are fantastic to see. That's a lot of toolboxes, but you only need to buy a tool once :p

    I knew what PAD was,

    And knew it was not Primate Acquisition Disorder.

    He collects 'kitties' eh?
