Re: Pics Of Your Garage Or Shop ??
Crow, What major tools do you have and what power is available? Can you move/add power outlets
if needed? I like my welders to be close to the big door as possible, but the dryer 220 is usually at
the other end.
I ran a sub panel and rewired my whole garage in surface mounted conduit after insulating and
sheetrocking the place.
I have 2 outlet box's hanging down in the middle of the garage so I have one on each side of the vehicle
thats supposed to be in the middle of the garage. That used to be my race car.
I have one 6' bench topped with formica countertop and lag bolted to the wall and that has one of my
vices on one corner.
The back wall is nearly covered with shelves from about 5' up
After that things start falling into place. I need to make my roll around closer to the big door too, that
or get the dang garage emptied out so i can bring in a car at all!
Try for a "work triangle" in concept like a kitchen, so you can have the things you use the most, near
where you use them. Form should follow function.
Most of my bench tools are mounted on a board, and racked, so I can stick them on a Black and Decker
workmate for use. This keeps the bench mostly free of those tools.
A lot of it depends on what you do in the garage.
