shortly before i started this build off thing it was actually kinda organized out here I swear
I used 3in1 oil down in basement lab yesterday, the smell is everywhere. Good thing I like the stuffComes with restrictions - no paint or pb blaster or anything "stinky".
WOW! Love all your other cars and motorcycles in there too!When my wife and I were looking at houses 20+ years ago I had a couple rules. It had to have a 3 car garage, and the road out front couldn't have any lines painted on it.
We found something on a cul du sac so the no lines criteria was met, but it only had a two car garage. However it also had an unfinished walkout basement. We made a deal - we could get the house as long as the basement was mine. ALL mine. She agreed, so for the past 20+ years our basement has served as my shop.
Kind of a cross shot, my benches are on the left and right of this. Anything with an engine in this shot has been sold since this was taken.
Here's the bike stand setup I've got going. It's to the right of the first photo.
I can't find anything that shows the tools down there so just check out the background of other pics I've posted? ;-)
There is a fan in a window that works pretty well when I'm doing anything that might stink, but in general I just avoid that as much as possible. I did have a rudimentary paint booth set up down there for a while but I tore that down a couple years ago.
I'm not sure if it's brilliant, but it is absolutely soild. I've never worked on a stand that is more soild mounted than that one. There is NO (discernable) give or flex in any of it.WOW! Love all your other cars and motorcycles in there too!
I’m so jealous! One of these days……..
your floor column/jack converted to a bike stand is BRILLIANT!
So awesome……A pic inside the welding shed, but it doesn’t show the tool benches.

It always looks so much bigger in these photographs than in real life. Working on the baby car.

They're super flexible in traffic without that bar across the top, helps to avoid knocking mirrors while squeezing between things. And they are abundant. That purple piece in the second picture is a free AMF that I painted and I generally find the Schwinns intact for $50.I noticed all the bikes are step through…. Super cool.
They are totally underrated and I’m stunned at the price difference / value difference between ’men’s’ and ‘women’s’ bikes.
I know a lot of city riders prefer Mixte/ step throughs…. interesting to know as Syracuse riding does not have a lot in common with NYC ridingThey're super flexible in traffic without that bar across the top, helps to avoid knocking mirrors while squeezing between things.
