Track work, two trestles Wiring and DCC installing. I want trains looping by October.
And reinstalling the Work benches to give me more room and speed productivity while not interfering with creativity.

That empty table looks scary Bob.

I hope you haven't caught something

Looks scary to me too and evil too.
But getting a new garage door was easier (and cheaper) than I expected and a nre work center is arising.

Yes the new garage door came quicker than I imagined so I didn't get any track work done. But here is my new work bench, kinda, a lot of detailing yet;

and the right;


As you can see I retained the C-shape but I have have given myself 14" more room between the legs of he "C". and no I haven't grown (in fact I'm a little thinner). On the left of the red vise will be storage of hot projects. The laptop that I use to generate car movement and will use to program decoders will also go there. The old desk top is just too old. I'm afraid to let it on the internet even but it is the only thing that can play some of my old files. But it needs to go. Between the red vise and the TV (another space waster as it's never on) on the lower surface is where I do all my cutting and sanding of stripwood. In the second picture you see the center section where most of the work is done and the paint booth to the right. I'm awaiting several tool and paint organizers from HobbyZone to arrive before I can move all my tools and paints back to the bench. on the fat right of the 2nd picture will go my Lathe/milling machine, my bench drill press and grinder.
Above the workbench I have plans for staging yards the final plan is yet to be determined. above the left side of the work bench you can see the bench work for the layout. Here will go a Sawmill and a port scene that also needs to be worked out.

Hi Bob:

Making progress!

What kind of mill do you have? I sure would like to have one of those "mini-mills". Been a while since I've machined steel/metal, but I think it would come back to me once I started tinkering with one. A mini-mill would be the cats meow for cutting new axle slots in cast frames.

I have a Unimat 3. A better Lathe than a mill.
I hope to learn how to use her better. Though a better use of my time might be to learn 3d drafting since Shapeway now offers a metal casting service.

We'll see.

Ah... a Unimat. Nice tool.

Sigh... if I was rich... there would be both: A lathe and a mini-mill.

A little progress to report;




As you can see my organizers have arrived and been assembled. Now I get to move the tools back in and I'll be back in action.

Bob,

You'll soon be able to get back to the truly fun part of the hobby . . . Disorganizing.

Mike
