I’ve set myself the challenge of having an operational workshop by March (in time for my Birthday). The main tasks are to get build a decent sized bench and to chuck out some of the junk we’ve inherited which are currently being stored there. The electrics also need to be examined. Over the years I’ve collected together quite a wide range of tools and equipment but I’m hoping to get a few more items. A trip to the Model Engineering Fair at Alexandria Palace last weekend was also inspiration. I’ve spotted which of my friends “get it” and which really don’t understand why I would want a workshop with a lathe.
