I see a big shop,  but I see sawdust all over the floor,  not just there but everywhere, and electrical cords everywhere,  a big fan ready to fall off a microwave, there is no emergency  exit  signs anywhere, but it's a good place to have, no chair, or TV , no refrigerator,  no stove,

Out of curiosity, what’s the microwave for?

I ask because I use one for drying bowl blanks when I’m turning green wood instead of using a kiln. Are you using it for something similar?

We use it for making plastic baits (rubber worms, paddle tails ca-neels ect.)  The oven it is sitting on is used for powder coating............

That’s a really nice lathe right there. I have a nova dvr but it doesn’t quite have the heft I need for some of the off balance work I find myself doing.

There is a pellet stove on the back wall.  I have also been thinking about a pot belly stove to burn all of m,y wood scraps..........

 

PS I like to keep the temp around 72 to 74 so I can work in comfort............

Got rid of the Kubota right before I bought this one  6 years ago.

I ended up buying a yanmar 325 last month with a backhoe.
