More Shop Goodies

Less than a couple weeks after we pulled the trigger on the new shop space, the admiral comes home with some new (to us) tools! Cool! These came from a local boat builder's surplus sale.

First up is a new industrial sewing machine. Suitable for upholstery and canvas. Better than the other machine we have (so I am told).

Combination belt/disk sander. Missing a few parts (worth ordering). A $1000 machine when new, purchased for a song.

A funky, almost folk-artsy, handmade welder's vise.

A sliding miter saw (a bit smaller than our current unit).

Also included, but not pictured...
  • jigsaw
  • shop lights
  • steel storage shelving

Yes, much effort is being spent on the new shop space. But work on the boat is still ongoing (as time allows). More to come.
