The old Bulletin Board has been removed from the server. And with recent "spring" cleaning, we are removing links back to it. The BB is still out in cyber space (to some extent) thanks to The Wayback Machine.
The first picture is where I'll do some fabricating when not on the clock. Usually on break time, before shift or after shift. Plenty of metal bending tools, milling tools and welders. Otherwise, a lot of work will get done in my little garage/home shop. Yeah, I currently have a Model A in there. For more space, I added a tent on the side of the house to get some painting done. Temporary for a few years. Finally got rid of those Craftsman boxes and replaced it with a single top and bottom. Now I can use the space that was wasted between them. Maybe, someday, I'll take a picture of that new box. Pales in comparison to the work box.
My almost-Stovebolt, '53 Bel Air on the 10k lb 2-post asymmetric lift. 4-bay garage, 2 bays used as my shop.
The '66 Penn Yan has moved on, but that photo shows the layout fairly well. High bay on the right two slots.
The Nissan Titan gets some time on the lift, and also has to provide motivation for parts hauling. That particular trailer load was a year ago - the complete engine and drivetrain from a '53 Bel Air with Powerglide, including the torque-tube rear-end assembly.
1970 Chevrolet C10 - Grandpa’s- My first truck.—in progress to shiny 1972 Chevrolet C20- Rusty- the puzzle box lid for the C10. 1950 Chevrolet 1300- in progress to shiny. 1962 AMC Rambler American- my wife’s
Parts trucks- 1951 GMC 9300 1951-GMC 9430 1951- Chevrolet 1300
26x36 with an open 24x20 shed end. Woodworking and truck mechanics are incompatible in the same room. Shed end will be closed in, insulated for compressor, bench, vise, rolling toolboxes and heating system. Timber frame addition to the shed end for truck restoration. Gable end 90 degrees to building facing driveway. (T shaped ). Will have open shed roof for tractor.
Attic trusses used for loft and clear floor span. 10'-5" ceiling height. 200 Amp service. Built on a budget. Started framing after work on a Friday. Had last wall standing by Sunday night. No help. Built 12 foot sections to lift by myself. Good for woodworking not for a gantry crane or lift.
Note - 4 speaker surround system. I dance alone.

A typical 18ft by 20ft 2 car garage attached to a 4 bedroom colonial on 1/2 acre with shared driveway backing to forest retention acreage of a 135 unit subdivision. Very tight use of space provided but fortunate wife agreed stovebolt vehicles too valuable to continue use of a harbor freight tent garage. Enjoy the pics! V/r, Nick
