  • elbow room..............the little engine that could

    Don't complain about room in your shop............................................
    look at the pictures, this is my world, this is my reality. I have another larger shed about 15 feet away, doors facing each other. we use that shed for larger tools, oxy/acetylene Etc Etc Etc. and some storage. the shed I weld in becomes even smaller in the winter. I usually do my oxy/acetylene cutting outside over a barrel. I usually keep my miter saw in the other shed, but with winter and all..............I can also move the welder back some but it's still tiny. The bench grinder is there just for the winter. ya ya ya ...........my next metal project is going to be a stand for it. I could have it in the outher shed but man thats alot of trips to sharpen my tungsten lol lol. in the summer I'm hoping to build a new shed or knock a wall down and expand it. when I first got my welder we just bought this place, with a family to support, no money and winter on the way, I was forced to do what I could with what I had. I'd be ****ed if I was going to store my new welder after saving all my pennys. so I winterized it and started blazing baby lol .....................
    get er done......................GET ER DONE. my camera is crap, it's barely working so I just took a crap load of pictures from different angles. can you imagine how difficult it is to keep it clean. anyone els with a crapy little shed? come on people show your junk. I guess you could say I'm the little guy ........................lmao lmao ...............

                Wow, That is small, but at least you have some nice tools to work with. Nice welder BTW. I hope you get that shop you always wanted some day.

                I am currently working out of my parent's garage which is very large but usually packed with cars and toys. When my larger projects in the works, I have to back out my dad's truck so I can at my 230V outlet. It is heated with radiant heat, but with current fuel costs, has been kept just warm enough to melt snow from the cars and keep pipes from freezing. I can't wait for summer!

                I have my eye on a piece of property neighboring my folks house. My dream is to put up a nice steel building on the back of that lot. Hmmmm...

                Good Luck!

                          Considering your welder to shop ratio I believe you could heat your shop by merely running your synchrowave!!! (not welding, just ON)

                              little mini me ...........

                              ha ha ha ha ha ha ha .................I knew someone would get a kick out of my growing enterprize. ha ha ha ha. I got the before picture(well.....movie) now alls I need is the after picture. I have a big vortex inline fan hooked up to a thermostat and also hooked up to a dimmer switch for speed control for when I weld. the fan gets unpluged when I leave unless it's the two hottest months of the year. I havn't had to use the fan due to heat yet. she gets up to 30 below up here. summers not bad. the shed is shaded with tall trees. I'll die for two months out of the summer but hey ..........................
