My shop is boring really, I'd do a yard tour but I don't do vimeo or YouTube or etc. I tried earlier to upload a video but it kept rejecting it as file too large so I give up.
Little bump to the top let’s see more! No one gives a shit if your work bench is dirty or that it’s a single space car port or you’ve got the hot rod barn from heaven in Kansas. We love them all!
@n847 @Blue One come on guys
Great to see the collection . Thanks for sharing !
A very quick walk through my shop after we got done with last night's thrash on my son's C10. The place is trashed, but were working on 2 cars and a tractor.
Well...not sure if I know what I am doing, but maybe this will work...
This was a great idea! I look forward to seeing more.
Hi folks.Thanks for taking the time and effort to make and post the videos of your shops and projects and collectables.Great stuff.Please keep it coming.
This self imposed house arrest just sucks.Took a quick drive around town yesterday just to relieve the cabin fever.
Good luck.Have fun.Be sfe.
Do you need a you tube acct to post a video? I posted one on IG a few days ago but it wasn’t very good. I can do better for the Hamb.
yeah for the hamb you need to post it on you tube or the like to post it
I've thought about doing a walk around video for a while but didn't know if anyone would care? These videos are great keep them coming!
@cactus1 absolutely!! Let’s see it
Here's a still of one corner.
Joe is a member here but I’m not remembering his screen name at the moment.
Sorry,no video,but a few pics of one project and a few finished ones. Had the Cady out for a drive the other day,good for the soul. At least we are still aloud to do that. Changed its name from "The Starship Enterprise " to the "escape capsule".
You ought to have that picture framed and put on a wall............ Its great and the black/white makes it even better.
My "happy place" with my '34 Plymouth coupe (owned since 1974) and my '33 Ford roadster in progress. The '33 has a dropped Super Bell tube axle, 9" rear, a 348 Chevy and 700R4 and will be running fuel injection. I drove the Mustang until it literally fell apart and it is now awaiting it's turn to be rebuilt. The shop (and it seems like everything else that I own) is also a work in progress.
Thats the kind of shop I enjoy touring. I liked the stand for the belt sander, that pyramid shape from some former life. I had something similar and started to throw it away, but didn't. Later I got a hydrauic pipe bender and it worked out perfectly as a stand with places to hang the dies on it. You should be exceptionally proud of what you have there.
There seem to be two kinds of shops in the world. Working and Non-working. I like your kind best.....
What the hell man! I sure as he'll can't show my pile of garbage now...
Here’s mine, I’m working on getting all our guys to do one.

@cactus1 please tell me your editing in some sweet dirt bike jumps in your video haha
Kinda reminds me of my first shop. You can help yourself out a lot if you get some pallet racking . Instead of occupying space, it creates space. My son bought a house a few years ago with an attached garage. I "convinced" him to take a section of pallet racking I had. Grudgingly he did. Soon he had virtually everything in his garage organized on the racking and lots of free space. When he moved to his latest (forever) home it had a 40x 50 shop already built. The first thing we did was put pallet racking across his back wall. We still laugh about it. There is a lot of free space available in most shops, but its above the ground. You can make a workbench in one level of the rack and mount your vice. Put your cabinet underneath and you gain a shelf up top for all the stuff thats in your way. Put several racks up and your shop suddenly becomes more organized and actually has more room..........jus sayin
Here is a picture of a pallet rack with a workbench and cabinets added as well as a vice. Lots of storage space.
Here is my sons new shop. He hasn't accumulated all the "historic" stuff I have yet, but someday he is going to have a lot of stuff to go in there.
Make use of all that space up in the air that is wasted and your shop becomes bigger.......
Well... a really clunky and drab vid.. but.... here it is.
Haha! I wish! Our business is considered "essential" so I haven't had any extra time off yet (which is good and bad as I've got plenty of things to do at home!) I did spend some time cleaning and installing a new (to me) piece of equipment this weekend though so maybe I can get some footage here soon.
