The drill press is set up as a mill right now, but using a bench vice I clamp the press on it's side to use as a wood lathe. I can post some images of that tomorrow.

The metal lathe is self explanatory, but has a few different tool holding attachments(dremil)

I've got a set of motors for the aircompressor so it can be run on 110 or 220 by changing pulley size to account for hp differences.

Sanders and grinders are worth their weight in gold when needed.

How the fuck can you pack that much shit in so little space?

Nice lathe.

Sadly I'm doing a slow shuffle of 2-3 tools to the front of the workbench. Gardening tools live in a trashbarrel to conserve space.(hence the possibly non-visible labels on the handles.) The orange cabinet houses all of my air tools and 200' of air line.(an auto shop's worth or impacts/ratchets/hammers/drills and a "cheater tank" for volume) I have a rolling 110 welder on a cart with all the fixings for .023"-.035" wire.

I left my toolbox and sockets as well as the workbench with the vise out of the pictures for anonymity's sake.

The over all size of the pop up tent is about 10' tall, 12' wide and 12' deep. I can just barely fit a motorcycle diagonal in the tent and zip shut. I made a 100' extension cable from a 220 outlet to power a 220 female and 4 - 110 outlets(can't power all at the same time.)

You're a clever and industrious goy.

You are a credit to the race.

Nice, I have the same "mill" setup. Is that a shaved and re covered EX250 seat?

I totally disassembled the x-y table, and flat filed, then stoned all the bearing/sliding surfaces to try to do away with play in the table. I would strongly advise the same. I can't do anything for backlash yet, but may post in the future when I track down some acme thread nuts and some springs.(requires drilling the acme threads out of the table to emulate a bridgeport.)

I plan on cleaning up the slides in the same manner. Waiting to get a more solid desk to bolt the cross slide and press onto first. Also, pretty sure those are not ACME threads, but some kind of square thread.

Isn't it amazing how tables collect shit?

What sorts of projects come out of your shop?

I spent quite a bit of time creating a new bolt for a 1927 iver-johnson .22short/.22/.22lr single shot bolt action, after finding that sourcing a bolt is impossible.(model x) I do a ton of auto repairs out of my "shed", as well as discovering that carbide rasps(1/4" die grinder bits) do wonders for flat bottom milling of(predrilled) 70-75 aluminium.
