So many probably are wondering, How are things going to look?
Well, we are trying to make things easier to find as well more efficient for you.
We have added 4 server racks for out & in the open storage. 2 of them are between the Bridgeports. They have shelves on them allowing the most often tooling to be right by you & very easy to find. This hopes to make it so you dont have to go dig through the cabinets. There is 1 server rack between the 2 lathes. This will have shelves as well. We possibly will be able to put the chucks on them as well as the other common tooling. The last one is for the HAAS tooling. This will remove the tool holders from the table & onto a more efficient vertical storage.
As you have seen in the pictures so far, the major equipment is on the exterior of the shop. The tables, this includes the blue table & former Sherline table are in the center of the shop. In addition the gray cabinet & tool boxes are in the center. Once we get more of our items in place the sheet metal tools such as the shear, brake, turret punch, corner notcher & arbor press will be also in the middle arranged in a somewhat circular pattern to allow access to the equipment & sharing a common center point. If we have room, the turret drill press may go there as well.
The surface plate for inspection of your parts will also be easy accessible. It will retain a cover over the plate. There will be no storage allowed atop of this. It will be marked as such.
