So we've seen your workbench area Mark, what you doing with the remainder of the space in there?

 

Partially for my desk and computer. The other part is for more benches for my lathe, dirty work (soldering etc.) and equipment. And I have a small annex room for the polishing and ultrasonic machines and storage.

Mark makes a really good point here. I have a really small workshop & contamination after working on my lathe is a real problem. A complete separate section of the workshop is essential. I have to cover my work bench with a dust sheet before the lathe,drilling,filing etc. procedures as that **BLEEP** swarf gets everywhere.

What a cracking job you have done Mark, working should be a pleasure. I would also thank you on behalf of the members for your kind words regarding their input to the forum. :)

Cracking workshop Mark. You have created a really functional work area. Have you ever calculated how much you have spent on your equipment. At a guess I would say you have at least 20k.

Ditto. Well done Mark. As you mentioned in the video, if you want to find something out - look on the web.

Really enjoyed the tour of your workshop Mark, well done, looking great thus far!  Funny you should mention the radio being an important factor in your working day, I suffer from tinnitus, and have recently started to listen to the radio through my iMac which really does help work, and reduce me from hearing the ringing in my ears.

Fantastic video! It's really cool to see the inside of a working shop. I've been working up my nerve to approach a local watchmaker and beg for a tour. This is the next best thing.

 

All those tools...why isn't there a "drool" emoticon? And there's that Cousin's LED lamp again.

 

Thanks for posting!

I have no idea to be honest. But I do know it never ends :)

Very true!

I have mild tinnitus, but it seems extremely loud at night sometimes, I found this app for my iPad which just plays for the amount of time you specify a particular sound you choose. It is a real big help and gets me to sleep most of the time.
