    hay guy i am new to the forum i just got a miller syncrowave 300. and i am now setting up my 2 car garage at home as a weld shop/play room :-)

    i also got myself a nice new tool box and wheel grinder for grinding my tungsten.
    and bought new shelves and stuff.

    i am in the process of building a welding table and putting things together i was wondering if you all can post pictures of your shop layout so i can get some ideas. i will post pictures when it all gets done.

    thank you
    Jason

        I was waiting to get all on my areas done and set up a walk thru video of the three areas of my shop.

        1) The fine hand working area
        2) The assembly/disassembly are (the garage) which also doubles as my wood working area.
        3) The hot shop and machine shop building.

        I am working on the hand working area today. Plus I unloaded the 6 sets of shelves that I bought at Home Depot yesterday. They were marked down to $19.00

            A place where I have gotten some great deals on shop shelves, furniture, cabinets, etc. is at office furniture surplus places, not machinery surplus. In northern CA, the machinery surplus places charge a lot, and since I am not a big regular customer (being a hobby guy) I can't seem to bargain much. But in the office surplus places, they seem more interested in moving things out the door. The better office cabinets are fairly heavy duty. A good 60" x 30" office table has a pretty solid frame and can be had for $50. I used two as workbenches until I ran out of room for them. If you have such a place nearby it might be worth a look.

                LOL my shop is pretty disfunctional just like me so we get along fine but others may not.
                nice tool box.
                TJS good looking shop, looks like you get to play with some cool toys. nice lil tug boats ya got on there, i'm guessing they are not for the kiddy rides at the fair.
                how many beers dose it take to keep the turky turning till its done. thats a lot of peddling.

                        Paul, That looks like my friends farm shop. He always has to work outside even through the winter. And he wonders why when he needs me to do something I make bring it to me.
