  • my Mcgyver shop

    With twin girls age 15.95555 they remind me of the age....and a 16 year old boy that knows he knows all there is to know about SPEEEEEED...this is what I have had to do Mcgyver myself into powder coating.....on the left is my old sandblaster from harbor fright...merged into an old furnace case and the arm hole chunk of metal was carefully measured...yea (sorta) and screwed down with the sheet metal screws, done the same to the bottom of the ol blaster so I had a drop for the stuff to flow down, added a water trap and the vac and it works...Center is my booth, got a neat little wire feed on the left so i can just pull out what I need to hang stuff..on the right is a an old frezzer sittin on top of an old furnace shell, and on of them GE built in ovens attached to the other end.. the one thing I've learned about powder coating ( and I'm number one offender ) is ya cant shortcut the cleaning process.. and for me I ask...would I buy this? the rest is sorta fair game....
    BTW ...My Chair is made from ...what was left of an old dental chair..it doubles as a work motorized saw bench ( sucker was great for aligning the oven to the furnace box....) the seat..hard as a rock came off an old 30 foot ocean charter boat that was built here ( Gold Beach , Oregon
    where the mighty Rogue River meets the pacfic, the finest salmon, steehead fishing year round......) ok...the plug for my town is done...anyways..the boat wa built in the 50's ...the seat is all thats left of that boat that braved the second most dangerous bar on the west coast...for over 40 years....( I burned the hull of that boat, the only thing worst ,was watching my oldest daughter head out into this world..) BTW again...everything is mobile..........
    Thanks to all of you for your words...wisdom

      But it takes up all that ROOM!!! Shall I revisit my Folding Shop :P

      I may end up converting my 10' x 10' Shed into a shop when this is all said and done. Will have to wire it up for 2x 220 lines and about 4x 110 lines and put in a few lights and a AC unit

          Thank you. Under my situation, I had to think outside the box.

              I guess I'm sorta lucky, my garage is 30x40, all I gotta do is leave some room for the wifes car. I can get both cars in if i roll everything back against the walls though...
