    Sink in the Shop - Priceless

    The thread title says it all. Now I can stop wandering down the hallway everytime I need to rinse something out or wash up. LOML got me this for Christmas; finally stopped long enough to put it in.

    Harbor Freight wyes.

    Now that the leak test passed, a little drywall mud and I'm all set.

    Nothing quite like having a sink in the shop Glenn, good choice.

    You are correct, that is really nice to have!

    I've got one that looks just like yours. Bought it when we bought the house, with the intention to put it in the laundry room, next to the washing machine (and right outside the shop door). Even bought the faucet and hose fittings to plumb it in. Turns out though, that the drain in the laundry room is the high point at the end of the line, so I'd have to elevate the sink a couple feet to
    get the bottom of it above the drain line.

    So now we have a dry, non-draining sink in the laundry room. My next shop will have a sink and toilet, if I have things my way.

    another vote for both,, and the wandering outside in the winter is enjoyable but now that need has ceased... so vaughn do some revamping just drain it into a bucket or drainage pipe..

    I agree! Since my workshop may become a bedroom if we ever move, my sink can be taken off the wall (I added a mounting plate before the drywall went up) and the supply and waste lines capped within the wall. It shares a common wall with a bathroom.

    Because I am a geek, my sink has "electric eyes" for the faucet, soap dispenser, and towel dispenser.
