My shop has grown lately. It's by no means as slick as some, but it works for me (and my son).

Thumbs up

Finally have something worth contributing here. I've recently been able to get my new workshop up to speed and almost complete. There are still temporary work surfaces for now, and a few things missing that will happen when the old place sells, but at least for now, it's a great "man room" for me and Jack (my cat) to hang out.

Thanks. It's a Flambeau, purchased from Berland's Tools about 10 years ago. One of the nicest tool boxes I have purchased, only short of my F8 Team Magic case.

Check out the old school stuff. JRx2 with box and the gold tub RC10 sprint car, the Trinity box. Brings back old memories.

OK. That's that place that used to have a TV show featuring different tools...

Yeah, and there is a lot more still waiting to be restored underneath a couple of those tables, too. The car underneath the yellow Andy's Mercedes oval body is a new RPS Yokomo SE. There's more fun for me in the old stuff...

Yup, it was a "Tool Time" just like Home Improvement. If I'm not mistaken, it was the pattern for Tim Allen's show.

A couple of my garage. I do more than just work on my RC cars in it so I can't dedicate it like some of you have.

The one thing you have that none of us do is a fire extinguisher in the shop. I know what I am buying tomorrow.
Thanks for the pic.

All it takes is one chunk of molten welding slag in the wrong place to teach you that you need them.

I actually have 3 out there, though the one under the sink was given to me recently and I haven't put it anywhere yet (no I'm not paranoid - just had nowhere else to stash it).

The ones that regularly live out there are the ones attached to the leg of the work bench and the one attached to the welding cart.
