Well in truth I have no roof, yet, I thought I would install the lift before I complete the shop. The roof and walls are coming, I hope to be in a shop by the 1st of the year.

I bought at Lowes a Craftsman vertical Air Compressor on 2 pnematic wheels. It weighs in at 167 lbs, supposedly was assembled in Tennessee, and is replacing a smaller Craftsman that I had for around 25 years.

Not sure if this counts because I didn't buy it but... I had a surprise waiting for me when I got home today a nut and bolt thread gauge. Jay (Lugnutz) sent it to me, very cool. Thanks again Jay.

Tuts,
You are welcome.
I went to an auction today. Bought what I went for. Skatblast media blast cabinet and vacuum. Has gloves and foot pedal control and some media inside too. I need to make some space for it. My shop is packed full.
I made my 63 C10 earn its keep. It laid down in the bed for the ride home.

A good water trap at the machine helps. Also, getting some spare nozzles, gloves and plastic film for the window. Bulbs, too. Nothing worse than being in the middle of blasting something and the light goes out.

I've used 60 grit red garnet for the past 10 years of so. Seems to do the job without warping anything and leaving great grip for paint. https://www.mcmaster.com/8072T67/

Just bought a tool cart from HBF, it seems to be pretty well built for the money. Gave just over $80.00 after my discount.

Phak1- look up “danmar max jax” . They are a mid rise lift and they can me moved around fairly easy or made permanent. They will lift over 6k (6k rated). I was skeptical at first but a buddy had one in a home garage. I thought it was dumb that I couldn’t walk under a car thats only 50” off the ground. Then he rolled out his modified computer chair that tilted back like a recliner and my attitude changed. I was like “i could totally deal with this”. Gotta do what ya gotta do in the space you got.
