I am just screwing around calling you a city slicker. This website is strange and I am a newbie, some areas seem to be over moderated like no other I have seen, while long term members claim this place used to be everything goes. I am concerned about you claiming
lack of space, saying you can't put a box fan next to a tumbler. Does your wife or girlfriend insist on parking her vehicle in the garage? Is the closet full of all her shoes and different colored purses? I am new here but close to applying for social security, I need a lot of sit down breaks, so here I am.
Oh I know you're joking.
As for space - no my wife doesn't have any opinion on the space. As long as she can walk through it to get into the house, she doesn't care. I just don't have any more table top space where the tumblers are. But I don't think the temp is going to be a problem. It's been running more than 24 hours straight and seems to be doing fine. Hasn't gotten more than warm to the touch.
Right now I have a washer, a dryer, hot water tank, two small desk areas where I work at the computer and tune pens, a small area for my mill, a huge tool box, 2 cnc lathes (tormach 15L), a wood lathe for sanding, a big sink, and a Grizzly 4003g 12x36 lathe. My shop is an old single car garage that was expanded out about 6 feet, and it just barely fits everything I have. X)
view from my desk
you can see my tumbler setup on the right by the door. I need to build some small shelves above the black toolbox at the door and I'll be happier. I just don't want to drill into the brick.
