Ok, I know the rule...no pics = didn't happen.  This did happen, and I have proof.  This is the shop craigslist built.  Everything you see.  Literally - cept the clock radio and mug warmer in the window.  The table saw, which you don't see wasn't craiglist, but I did buy it used for pennies just the same.  I wish I had twice the room, but don't we all.  You'll notice on the counter I have a piece of plywood.  That's where there was a sink.  I will do something there...no clue. I may make it a router table the lifts forward and out so I can run full length boards on it...or, a downdraft table, not sure.  I still need to run my ductwork for dust collection.  I also need to move one 4 gang outlet set as it was covered by the furthest base cabinet on the right.  It will simply get lifted right into place in line with the rest...there is enough wire, it'll just be a bit of patchwork to the drywall.  Oh well, I had that done before I got the cabinets.  Fun fun fun.  And today I picked up a bunch of nice cedar to play with...16" rounds to have Alice play with in the new and improved Wonderland.  I will finish the drywall and paint when I have time - and yeah, I wish that was already done, but there's only one of me.

That's a good job.  The sink - I was looking at the position and the window recess behind and was wondering if it would be worth dropping a sliding compound mitre saw in there seeing as there would be room for the rails?

C'mon Andrew, you've been turning long enough to know that as long as Alice is running, you probably won't be able to find the time.  Cheesy  But then again, you won't care, because you'll be too busy playing with Alice to notice the missing drywall and paint.  smiley=thumbsup.gif

Wow, I'm jealous!  That's a great looking shop!  And why bother painting - unpainted drywall makes for a good "sketch pad", and when it gets to a point of being unusable as a sketchpad anymore, then you can paint.   Grin  Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow!  smiley=lolk.gif

Thanks for the pics, looks great - enjoy it!

Looks good!! Maybe you can rig the sink area for a set of drop in tools. Mount a small band saw,grinder,buffing system, or whatever you may have to it's own 3/4" plywood & just drop it in place as you need it.

So I measured.  The compound sliding miter saw will fit, with some overhang when straight.  I can rotate it and it will not hang over the countertop.  The recess in the window is enough.  I also think I could countersink it enough to make it flush with the countertop for a greater surface area - without the slide hangin up on the window sill.  I could cut anything on one side about 8', the other, maybe 4'.  Time to make a plan.  Better yet, time to go turn something and worry about that later.  Next up, a different rack for gouges...one with a plastic front so I can se the tools, and they don't get all covered in shavings.

Nice shop Andrew!
I'm liking that steady rest on the wall too! Much larger than mine.

But I have to ask, What's the story with the boots under the lathe? Did the joy of turning bounce you right out of 'em? Grin

Pictures of heaven..

I like the light stand.  Is there more on it than lights?  Was it made by oneway, or custom?

Tom:  The steady rest came with the unit.  No clue who made it.   Its nice, but I wish it closed in differently, its not quite uniform, which prevents its use on small items like shovel handles.  The boots were my subtle tribute to Les - placed there, very neatly, with laces tucked in.  Someone finally noticed.  Thank you.  Grin Grin Grin

Grant:  The lights stand is a double Gary Sanders, which I'm pretty sure Oneway now owns the rights to make.  It's a slick unit and I do reccommend it should you stumble on a lot of money you don't need.  If not, I'm sure you can make a custom unit out of PVC with a little effort.  The only thing else attached to it is my dust collector hose on occasion via a little bolt and wingnut.  I have not yet had the time/gumption/kick in the pants to build a proper collection port.  It will probably not be mounted the the light system, but then again, it maybe will.  I NEED to do that coming into summer where I will turn more (unless I build a second timber frame, which I'm contemplating).  I have a large oak plate bolted the the back of the lathe that has all sorts of capability from the standpoint of mounting things to.  It has a third lighting plate should I want another.  I took it off...the two Sanders' lights, and a quadruple of fluorscents is plenty.

Andrew,
I would like to see a close up of that oak plate myself.

Chuck: here ya go - you build it for the guy?.  The left beam measures 1 5/8" x 3" x 26", the right is a tad shorter at 21". Each side is bolted onto a plate welded to the back of the lathe with 4 bolts.  The don't flex much at all, even being only held at one end.  I didn't put it on, it came that way.  The Sanders' is mounted to them, as is the bracket for the vaccuum pump (the pump fell off on the highway coming back from Missouri, a Benjamin right off the back of the truck), and another light plate (far left).  I'm not sure what you run (PM?).  I'm guessing if a mustard machine is your fancy, it'd be easy to drill and bolt a plate onto the lower area of the main frame...and it would be handy.  Or maybe run a plate across each end and run a rail behind the lathe lengthwise that mortises into the two plates?  Food for thought.

So...a question for you (or anyone)...in one of the photos, is a Oneway wheel balancing system that came with the unit.  My question is with the Oneway white painted unit with the two brackets (and two holes on the plate) that stand upright...any clue what its for?  I get the balancing unit...grinder wheel is attached to said aluminum hub, weights are added depending on how it rolls down the red rails, which is sitting on a FLAT surface.  But the other bit...No clue.

I made something similar for my Powermatic out of square tube steel. I can't find the link to the write-up here on WR, but here's the text and links to the pics on the AAW site:

Larry:  The lathe is circa 1997.  It does need a new paint job, and stickering ( I jus saw Alice's lathe and compared the paint jobs...yeah...mine's pretty beat).  I bought it used for a song last summer off of Craigs list of all places.  It falls in the category of a better deal than either Seward's Folly or the Lousiana Purchase.  I do suspect I will upgrade to the newer electronics system eventually.  It seems it doesn't have the lower end torque they are famous for.  Either that or hard maple is harder than I thought it was.  It is a pleasure to work with though.

There should be some adjustments to the low end cut outs in the electronics box at the base of the stand.  Check into it and I think you'll see what I'm talking about.
