    seems I have been shamed into it.

    Sorry for the crap photos, and after seeing how good some of that kit looks in other peoples garages I'm not sure I want to share my poor relation kit Click image for larger version.

    Plan is to do a big clear out, put up new work bench, clear out old work bench and have lathe on the 2nd one, and control units/PC's on the shelf underneath (hopefully cables will reach!)

    Next will be welding up a few wheeled tables, one for the granite plate and one for the band saw so I can shift them round the workshop.

    Then I will plumb in the new air compressor into some semi perm lines, also adding in my new lights (LED panels) and sockets around the garage.

    Finally I plan to dramatically cut down on the stuff stored on shelves, and instead buy a few cheap steel tables, stack them on top of each other and secure together, create a lower skid on wheels that the lower table sits in, then use some cheap roofing sheet (painted steel) to turn them into large mobile cupboards - that way I have the same storage, but it can be moved round the garage unlike shelves - I plan to be doing CNC woodwork and CNC metal work and some motorcycle maintenance (on my own bike), so I need to be able to shift stuff about as my garage isn;t big enough for all three as permenant set ups - but I can temporarily block in equipment I don't need.

    I also added the only thing I have made on the novamill - it was a little computer game logo into a medallion for my little lad - just used some scrap galv steel sheet I had - dodgy work holding, but the vice crushed it and I dont have a sacrifical alu pallet etc yet - though it is on my list of things to make.

    Awesome, it can all be improved. I need to move Thor inside so the bit of space I have made will be lost but will need to manage somehow.

    Got the hydrovane up and running before, it is so quiet compared to my old cheapy compressor. No where near as loud as a vacuum cleaner, maybe a similar volume to a.hair dryer. Made up with it.

    Little update video - will try to pull a series together over the coming months as I get more set up. This is my bandsaw cutting aluminium.
