As most of you know, I like to fiddle with stuff, I have a streak of "Bodger" in me, as my Grandfather used to say
I spend a lot of time at the lathe.......... OK, maybe TOO much time, but that is a topic for another thread
The faster/easier I can get things done, the better. A LONG time ago, I worked in a steel fabrication shop, Northside Steel, in my hometown, and I had a boss there named Dan. Dan was a great boss, worked you hard, but he also taught, all the time, everyday, all day. We built a lot of things there in that factory, and most of them required lots of parts, that had to be cut, etc, often by the thousands. He taught us all how to work efficiently, using our brains instead of our backs. I have to say, this has stuck with me (thanks Dan!) so at my lathe, workstation, I've been trying hard to make the space more efficient, and easier to use.
I moved my lathe into it's present spot a while back, and I built the one cabinet for it, but I needed some "on the wall" tool storage, and now I have some.
I thin I have it mostly covered, and I still have space for more stuff when (not IF, but WHEN) it comes along.
I also built an adjustable arm for my main light, this makes is MUCH more useful. I might have to add a spring or two to help the arm stay in place, or some friction pads (PSA sandpaper ) on the joints to make them slip less, but still, the light on the arm is SUCH an improvement, I have light right where I want it.
I show this to you guys, in the hopes that someone will have a better way to do something and share that too
