Well........here's photographic evidence of my shop's current condition. I'd have been finished about 18 months ago except for some inmates sending me a mini lathe and tools. My new b/s and lathe showed up about 4 weeks ago but I refused to unpack them until the shop is finished. I've got it painted and the lights hung. The lights had been sitting in the corner collecting dust for 18 months or so. I was turning with the only working lights in the shop.....a set of construction lights on a stand.
This afternoon I have 4 more outlets to install in the ceiling and then I'd debating renting an engine hoist and unpacking the lathe.
