    replied to My own thread about shop.
    At one time I painted some outside jobs but its a rarity anymore for a couple reasons. So much is done on old farm stuff by hobby types a cuy cant afford to compete most of the time. I painted one I should have had a pic, a small JD, 40 something maybe and had got some equipment from the guy. I let...

    How come Garage Journal and a little outfit like Shop Floor Talk can get it right and Hobart and Miller with all the clout of ITW has it all messed up?

    As with most of this work I really don't enjoy it, its the results I am after and this type of thing is something I quickly get good at. I am really a better painter than a lot of painters, its same with welding. On a day to day basis I am an ok welder but when we get to critical production I can float...

    I was trying to bring some content here but the thing never does the same thing twice. I am going to quit shortly, they had plenty of time to fix this pos. I have neighbors I can use machine shop but to tell the truth its pretty rare I need it. This type of system cvcan be used in a lot of places,...

    The air coms in over the top at the end and makes for down draft. I was going to filter it but its not a problem. My set up is about 10 minutes and this is super sick as I can pallletize a lot of stuff and even turn some of it so I am up wind. Its really clean and I usually don't even bother to sweep...

    The one in the hoist bay will get a repaint if I have the energy. I did it about 20 yrs ago and used JD paint. Its quite faded, will get Imron this time. I am not a great mechanic so I need to make up for it in other ways. My interest and expertise is really in production or maintenance and making it...

    Did Miller pay someone to design this system? If so,, get your money back, even SFT has a better rig up.

    At one time I painted a lot,, but my booth space really is a drain area for wet truck and car parking. I am glad I didn't build n a permanent feature or split the place in to r

    If I was going to work on trucks would have went to 100 long. In the end I am glad I did exactly what I did, the layout is near perfect For a real hobby shop would have downsized a pinch to reduce a bit of walking but for me this is ideal and I am a super multi-purpose vise grip kind of guy and I have...

    I will probably need to read the structions. We don't work from benches for hours normally but fly in and out. The other details about human activity are usually ignored but here its all about easy wash up, easy clean up, coffee, take a leak etc. There is a 14x14 door just...

    My own thread about shop.

    My place isn't sophisticated but closer to maybe Nascar in technology. I really rarely need machine work, rarely use a drill press even but the whole thing is geared to the type of task at hand. If need something can send my machinist to the neighbors a mile away and use it all for free but I am such...

    replied to Brake drums from big trucks
    OK, learning. I have been in a lot of shops. Many with more but usually not better. I like a clear table, with no interference it doesn't have to be big. The geometry is fairly precice here. The vise is at the near end of a utility bench where I cluster those kind of attachments. The walk around,...

    replied to Brake drums from big trucks
    Here is m take and it doesn't have mush to do with metal but shop design. As a base for a shear it may not be so bad but would just as soon or better to have a small table to bolt several items to and have a set spot for hand tools and parts while using it. A vise is the same, a post stuck in the floor...

    Its something that I liked about Hobart. It was lightly moderated by men. Its one of the issues that drove the talent from the AG forum. They couldn't grasp that it wasnt Sesame Street and there were not gobs of school kids drooling over every word in a mechanical forum....
