I am collecting parts right now. I will start build threads on both bikes individually very soon.
I also got word that my landlord is going to need my shop space by year's end. This is actually good news. I have been wanting to bring my shop back home for a while now and this gives me some incentive.
I will be setting up my new shop a little at a time. These will be the last builds done in my present location. I am designing new shelving, wrok benches, assembly table, etc, etc, etc right now. I only have 170 sqare feet to work with (my current shop is only a little larger than that anyway, and I do not use all of it). So, I have to be very creative with this shop. I will purchase industrial shelving to run around all the walls of the shop. Some stuff will hang from the ceiling. My two welders and plasma cutter (the plasma just arrived today, [my birthday
]. It is a really cool plasma cutter) will all go next to each other under the shelving. In this 170 suqare feet I will have my two bench top mills, bench top lathe, bench top drill press, two welders and plasma cutter, bench top belt sander, cutoff bandsaw, work bench, air compressor, assembly table, and various other tools. I will have good industrial lighting and a very well organized arrangement of shelving to make this all possible. What I am after is a "Full function" fabrication shop in the smallest space possible. I work best in a shop that has everything within my grasp. Also, I do not like having to drive to my shop miles away. This will make shop work much easier to accomplish. In the winter I can work when snowed in. In the summer, I do not have to worry about the heat. My current shop has no A/C and it in a loft of a steel roofed building. So, it is HOT.
1% of the world's population can think "Outside the box". The rest are firmly stuck within the box. Where are you?
