My attention has turned to my shed which has been a mess for a few years. I’ve made sure the mini lathe, bench drill and bench grinder are all working and cleaned up a few rusty items. I’ve also changed the board the lathe rests on on the bench as the old one had warped quite badly.

I’ve got 4 shelves on order which I can fit 2 by the work bench and drill and 2 by the lathe and will hold tools and other bits relevant to these machines/areas and should make more space for the main shelving to hold the rest – I think items to store have increased since the shed was last tidied up.

I’m also waiting for 2 led light panels which should improve things in there. I think I’ll leave the main clearing up and sorting until these other 2 bits are done.

I did consider trying to fit a small vertical mill in there, something which (I could get one in) would involve a complete revision of the left side of the small amount of space I have to play with but I decided I can’t justify or afford that and that it would be going far beyond the scope of the project.

The shed is unlikely to get much use but I’d like it fit for use as/if required. It used to be that I could quickly lay my hands on anything kept in there and the shed was pretty much “ready to go” if anything cropped up. As it stands about the only things I’d find easily are fasteners and even that involved wading over junk on the floor. And say using the vice or drill would involve moving one pile of things to another spot….
