    Still filling the new workshop with all the tools. Then I had to take a step backwards as one of the cupboards was in the wrong place as I measured one of the new machines wrong as I forgot that the table on it travels over 1 ft either way so this meant it needed an extra 2 ft total width the problem was I had filled the cupboard.
    Anyway that is now all sorted still need to put more electrics in and the good news is that both of the wood lathes can be reached now they are in their designated place. Starting to look like a workshop now but my main workbench is still cluttered should have that cleared tomorrow.

    Before I started filling my shed I made a scale drawing on the computer of all the bits and pieces that needed to go in there. Most of it was straightforward but I had to pay particular attention to the working envelope of the milling machine as the total space needed is greater than it’s static dimensions. It all fitted in without any problems but I’ve added more stuff so it’s still cramped at times.

    Biggest problem I found was that I started with mobs of room, then some hoe the shed started to shrink, now its crammed and over full.

    Well One section looking tidy. I now have a dedicated sharpening area just need to make a shelf for all the jigs and sharpening stones for hand sharpening, the cupboards are for nails and screw storage as well as odd fixtures like knobs, hinges and locks.

    The grinders may change position as they are just placed there for the moment

    Itís best to leave as much room as you can to the left of the lathe so you can pass long stock through the head. I often pass long work pieces through the head stock to work on them. My bench drill is to the left of my lathe so Iíve used the table before to support very long stuff for turning. In commercial situations the head often faces into the work area for this reason.
