Shop Tour (Under Construction)

Welcome to my new shop.
This is my shop I just completed. It is 21x16 and I constructed it to come apart for transport. It is small but it does what I need it to for now. Come on in and watch your step.
Please excuse the mess.

This is my work bench where I do almost everything but grinding.

This is my homemade disk grinder. I made it out of a disk from Koval knives, a washing machine motor, and scrap.

Harbor freight Drill and grinder converted into a bigger drill and buffer.

This is a front view of my grinder. On the left end of the shaft you will notice Naders Nightmare. I mount old chopsaw blades in it to use for profiling and tight grinding. The right is my contact wheel. The only things I had to purchase to construct this were the Idler, and contact wheel. The remainder is constructed out of scrap and an old jet pump motor.

This is my latest grinder. It runs real smooth, I just have to reengineer the tracking ajustors, purchase contact wheel and build a square wheel for it. All it takes is money.

These pictures are of my homemade wood stabilizer.

It is constructed out of some scrap pipe, a motor salvaged off a large swamp cooler, a York ac compressor salvaged from an old Ford, and a couple of canning jars. The pipe is used for pressurizing and the clear jar is my vaccuum chamber. The blue jar is a catch jar to stop the stabilant fumes and mist from reaching my vaccuum pump (it works like an oilbath air filter). The pump is rigged where I can draw vaccuum (about 27"hg max.) and pressurize using the same pump. Did I mention it airs up car tires on the side?
