This. My "shop" is my driveway. Everything is jam-packed in the garage, and unuseable unless it's during the day, on the weekends, when the weather cooperates...which hasn't been very often lately. A couple nights ago I was gluing up some chairs in my living room and it was so much nicer to not be under the sun, in the wind.I wish I had the space for a workstation like that, I certainly would spend more time making things.
Bob's fuel tank doesn't have a sender and an original one can't be used, I'd like to put a universal one in at some point and they come in all kinds of resistance values. I couldn't find the official values for the factory fuel gauge so this is a good way to find out.That's a neat idea. What are you going to use this for?
Man I wish I had the space for that, a little shop with one of those and a mill, a lathe, a welding table....you can build the world.Dad and I have been working for the last couple weeks to get our shop building up and running. The idea is to have 4 septate areas: An area for working on equipment, woodworking, welding and metal fabrication and storage.
Today I built the bench for the woodworking area. Dad sent me one he liked and I need my design on it, but went a little overboard with legs and crossmembers.

I'm still not sure what I'll do for the welding table. It'll be epic for sure!
Lots. And I'm not just talking about the people that build something out of pallets they saw on Pintrest. The racing community is full of the type of guy that can take a block of steel/aluminum or a pile of tubing and make something useful.You know, it gets me thinking.....how many of us are left you reckon? I mean the people who can actually design and build things? The real down to earth practical handymen? Every generation they seem to get fewer and fewer , replaced by designers and hot air....still there obviously, otherwise the world would be doomed, but still.
Ditto. Instructional YouTube videos make things a lot easier. Previously, you would have had to spend lots of time on finding the right book(s) and then leaf through them in the hope of finding the one bit of information you needed. Today, you can still read the books and you can also watch someone "do it right" after a few moments of googling. My fianc?e goes online all the time for all sorts of knitting, sewing etc. advice.From what I can see it's becoming more popular as a hobby thanks to technology. I certainly get a lot of inspiration from people online and even in this thread
