Short Description:  A New Home

It has been a long period of inactivity for the project as it sat in a storage unit that had no power and was mixed in with all my household stuff. I got lucky and a 10x24 unit close to where I live opened up and it provides the critical component - Electricity. That comes in the form of an overhead light socket but it should have enough amperage capacity to run a carefully managed shop. The weather here on the upper Gulf coast of FL is moderate most of the year so climate control is not a big issue other than a fan to keep air circulation going. I have a small air compressor and my collection of shop equipment are all modest consumers of power so no big issues there. Lighting will be handled by hanging several twin bulb 48" florescent light fixtures from the ceiling and I just happen to have several I brought along from a previous shop setup. The light fixture is controlled by a wall switch but I will set the actual lights to be controlled by a pull chain so I can get power without light if I want it.

1) This is the new shop as I got it, empty space but with a lot of promise. The floor could be cleaner and I will need to give it a good sweeping before I proceed much further.

2) I dropped of a collection of materials and other assorted stuff I had to get things going. I took advantage of the Labor Day sale at Harbor Freight to get a couple of simple shop accessories such as the stoll on wheels that will make life in the shop easier. We all know that HF does not sell quality goods but for simple items they provide a reasonable level of functionallity and durability. All of my power tools and pneumatic tools are from respected venders and some are over 30 years old and still going strong. Quality does pay off in the long term. Another example, I needed a cordless drill to do the light installation but I am not sure when I will find which box I stowed my good DeWalt unit in so with a cupon I picked up a passable substitute at HF for $20 and it even included a LED lamp accessory. A similar deal was found for a
