Hello again folks!! It has been a while since I have had a chance to get into the workshop and build something. I have been so busy with work and the family that I haven’t even had a chance to fly my model airplanes! Luckily things have lightened up at work and I have had the luxury of taking some time off for a family vacation. Of course my vacation included a couple of extra days for me to have some much needed garage time ;0)
After taking a wonderful vacation with my wife and kids we settled back into home life for the post-vacation vacation. Now having several free days to play I weighed in all of the projects that I would of like to get into. Of course the most ambitious project was the most intriguing to me which would involve quite a bit of work.
The project I had in mind was to remodel the north side of my workshop to accommodate a new mill and lathe I had received earlier as a “Christmas present” from my wife (yeah, I guess I have to admit I am one lucky dude!!!). I have always wanted a larger mill and lathe to tackle bigger projects and the recent overtime I had worked put us in the position to acquire them. Unfortunately my garage is fairly small and would require me to move everything on the north wall to accommodate my new machines.
