    Default A look around my shop.

My workshop is mostly housed in 2 rooms that were used by a tennent for training forklift drivers. Thank god for the aircon.
    The first 2 pics are of units outside the rooms. Radial arm drill, 16" power hacksaw and Cincinatti No 2 T & C grinder for rebuild. Breirley Z25 drill grinder and welding equipment under the stairs.
    Pic 3 has a Tos T & C grinder, monster of a thing, and Cinci attachments for refurb.
    pic 4 shows my loco frames which go with the boiler in the last pic. Rong Fu T & C, used on annular cutters, Servian T & C with a form relief grinder and the Clarkson in the corner.
    Pic 5 again the last 2 T & C grinders and a bench on wheels so I can wheel all the grinders out the door and make the mess near the stairs.
    Pic 6 which is so bad, a J & S 540 surface grinder complete with spindle leak.
    Pic 7 into the next room with a First mill and slotting head, small powersaw, CMX450 shaper and a bit of the Kearns S borer.
    Pic 8 has the stripped Borer and original Silky Oak tool cabinet, complete with boring bars and snout bar.
    Pic 9 has my Mazak Mate lathe and shelving.
    The last 2 pics are the same as I can't find how to remove one of them. Model loco parts, a riding car, vintage engines and a huge dividing head.
    Pity this old bloke has to work or I'd be here every day.
    Hope you enjoy.

    Thanks for the tour of the Man Cave, some very nice equipment you have there.

    Thanks for sharing the inside of your workshop. I wish mine was that well organised.

    The shortest way to do many things is to do only one thing at once.

    Thank you for your shop tour. I am impressed with your nice machines. Nice small radial drill!!
    I hope you will document your work on the Cincinnati t&c grinder. I have a AI Hembrug t&c grinder that I am working on that is a copy of the Cincinnati for the most part.
