Mancave Edition: Dirty Towels & Tackle Boxes

A thread dedicated to all the machinists, techs, tinkerers, grease monkeys and part junkies that keep our beloved sport running like clockwork.

Show off your work benches and gun operating tables. Messy or not, all your 'behind the scenes' labor deserves credit.

Pictures and video tours are all welcome!

Feel free to share some memorable tech stories as well!




[rgunn4's workshop]

Nice armory! Now that just needs a false wall and secret button to open it.

I wish my mancave were that clean and awesome.

The only semi-presentable, not-piled-with-tons-of-clutter photo I have:



To the photographer's right is the main workbench, a Lista cabinet for tooling, and a Craftsman toolbox stack for regular hand tools. To the left, the back half of the room has the turret lathe, a gearhead drill press with an X/Y table, and the horizontal mill, along with a couple other machines in need of rework or repair.

Out in the car bays of the shop is a third lathe (a big 18" swing gearhead) another drill press, the surface grinders, a 40 ton press, all the welders (gas, stick, spot, TIG and two MIGs) the beadblaster, bandsaw, buffer, bench grinders...

I keep meaning to do a photo walkthrough, but it's always so cluttered with parts, projects and half-built cars and other machines. I need a maid.

Doc.

My workbench (Normally covered in parts/projects).

Have a small pegboard on the wall opposite the bench to hang guns and parts are scattered through the cabinets and room as well ha ha. Have picked up another Plano box with the pull out drawers since this was taken too just keep adding em up!

Really old man cave, must be 6-7 years ago. Wife didn't give me a much slack once we bought a house so now it's all contained
