Santas workshop

Now that the car is gone for a few months the workshop has tons more work room.

left to right;
Roland MDX-40A , Compressor, vacuum cleaner, Laptop, Bandsaw, Drill press.

When the car is in it stops just short of that line of underlay on the floor. I've raised laptop to save it from spills and accidental key presses which also claims back bench space. The shelves are deep and cast shadow onto the bench so I've added some rope light. I bought a tool chest topper for some nice smooth draws. I need to swap the bits'n'bobs rack to the centre of the desk so I can move the band-saw to the right to eek a tad more space. I want to put another hole in the work top to pass plugs/power cables trough so they don't have to go over the bench top.

Here's the casting station. 

left to right: vacuum/pressure chamber, vacuum pump, pressure chamber lid, drill for speedy sealing, moulds, resin, scales, spare vacuum seal and a heater (important for shop not to be cold when casting). On the floor I've put down some left over underlay to help with standing fatigue. I'm going to try an find a fold out stool because standing all day sucks.

In the future I hope to knock down the garage and build a much bigger one (with space for the car and a workshop) but for now its home.

hey a look whose nose is running, what? don't see it wait till I sneeze looks like something out of alien
yes I really where all that stuff to cast, except the ear defenders that's because the MDX40-A is running in the background. It's not fun to wear but life only gives you certain amount of body parts you have to look after them.
