Post - The Fifth - Workshop

This is my current shop setup. It was a one car attached garage. As I tell my wife, "We don't have a garage, we have a workshop with a big door on one end."

Unfortunately, this space is not heated or insulated. It is just too cold to use in the winter months. I have a full basement with an inexpensive pool table. That pool table gets covered in multiple layers of protection and then it acts as my winter time workbench. I DO NOT start any of the engines in the basement. If I have to start an engine, I will suffer the cold long enough in the workshop for that purpose.

The center workbench actually started out as an out-feed table for the table saw. I like to do some woodworking from time to time. Since the small engine repair stuff began, it's been difficult to find the time for anything else in the shop.


  1. As of the winter of 2014-2015, the shop is now insulated and heated!

  2. I'm starting to learn about small engines and really like this little blog. I check it periodically to see if you've posted lately. You should give an update on what you've been up to.
