Nice thread Pipeclay. If your workshop can tend to be a mess, like mine with tools lying everywhere, then here is a tip to help keep it tidy. Whenever you walk out of your workshop, put 5 tools away. Before you know it, your benches will stay tool free. This tip comes from the most-excellent book Machine Shop Trade Secrets (http://www.amazon.com/Machine-Trade-Secrets-James-Harvey/dp/0831132272/ref=sr_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1386884191&sr=1-3) by James Harvey. Also, have a number of smaller garbage bins strategically located around your workshop and throw rubbish into them ASAP rather than leaving it lying around.
