Just thinking ahead here
I'm way too busy now to do this, but it needs to be done, so I'm thinking early spring?
I really need to rearrange my shop. The current layout just is not working for me. I have my TS and bench in the middle of the floor and all the tools pushed against the wall. These pix are a few years old and I've added/upgraded some equipment since they were taken (It's also not been this clean in a long time) But, it should give you the general idea.
Here's the current layout
I'm thinking of buying the LOML a stacking washer/dryer and replacing our very old water heater with a wall hung on-demand unit. This would allow me to install a slop sink where the WH is now and move the fridge over to where the dryer now stands. Then I'd move the cabinets from the north wall to the west wall which would give me a wider space.
Here's the question for the group. I'm totally anal when it comes to placing equipment in the shop - always pushing things up against the walls. I've noticed that many people have machines out in the middle of the shop in 'clusters'. For those of you who've tried this - how well does it work?
Here's one idea - it allows me room to add a very much needed assembly table.
