This thread is worthless without pics
I don't have mine all set up, but it is working, and I am moving stuff around too, but, though other tables are drop zones for everything from my glasses to last nights dinner plate, the loading bench is only for loading materials and "stuff" and for catching those loading/reloading essentials I occasionally remember to drag out of storage and plop down where I know they will be in the way...and when I have to remove them to another place on the bench, I know I have at least located it and set it where I can find it.I added another 5' of bench and shelves a while back. Well that space is ALL USED UP ... This morning I got sick and tired of moving stuff around to do anything. So I will extend the shop another 8'. It will be an 8'X10.5' addition. Benches are already up in the section I will expand to. Just have to take down a partition wall with door and move for entrance into wood shop. Also will put up ceiling in new addition. Two sets of florescent lights are already wired in along with 4 double plugs on two separate circuits along the benches.
The expanded addition will contain the work benches for working on guns/stocks. Also all the tools will go in that part. The current 11'X10.5' section will be nothing but reloading stuff, brass, bullets, primers, powder, presses, and dies, ect.
I will take out the electric ceiling heater and put in a propane wall unit in the work shop end. Also will finally mount the Air Conditioner up on the outside wall in the middle.
Seems like a good project while waiting for the weather to get right to start the 50' rimfire range.
I think my one bedroom apartment just got too small. I want a loading room just like SWO1's. Of course, then I would have to move my home brewery and winery into the living room. Life just got a bit more complicated.You had to ask for pictures now im envious Good Work
Thanks Gumpy. I don't like cozy little places. I have to have room to spread out. Now the Pistol and Rifle stuff runs together. I'm not a very organized person and when its cluttered to me and I cant find stuff ...... Then it has to really be bad ....... I hate bins and little cubby holes to hide things in. I want shelves and bench space where I can see it.You've put together a very nice shop, swo1. Real nice.
