First off this is the only place I could think to put this aside from the lounge, if this is not a good place to put it please move it.


Well as the title says lets see em, I'll start off with mine.

I know it's a mess and camera phone pics ftl but you get the idea.

Not EXACTLY all mine, but it is while I still live here.
Here they are... It's a pretty decent sized garage.. but when you have tread mills, and piongpong tables, and garage door openers staked up...

My dad's got that EXACT same Snap On puller set back home. We used to have an amazing shop to work in, I really do miss it lately when now I have to work in the cold outside to get something done, can't beat a heated garage for working on stuff, not gonna let old man winter keep me down though.

That's a pretty old set there, I love snap on and matco tools.

yea my dad used to be a mechanic back in the late 70's early 80's and I believe thats when he got most of his tools. Had a nice 25th anniversary Snap On roll around tool box but some nobs broke into our garage and stole the top portion, so now we just have the bottom to roll around, keep the body work stuff in there now. Snap on definitely makes the best stuff, wish I could afford it though, it'll be Craftsman for me for quite some time.

My grandpa was a heavy machinery mechanic for 30 years and had alot of mixed brand tools in his service truck and they all got stolen along with the truck, so his boss gave him a blank check for a new set of tools.:eek: Needless to say he took said check to snap on and got a $26,000+ set of tools, all of which now rests in the workshop. Not to mention the collection has grown since then.

wow ***** to have tools stolen, but you really can't complain about getting all you can ask for from Snap On, and the stuff will last forever if your not stupid with em, and even if you are lifetime warranty FTW.

My friends always like to see the 2" wrenches and sockets we have, makes for a good beatin stick if ya really need one as well.

Yeah gotta love the lifetime warranty we tend to abuse the hell out of em and if they ever fail just wait for the tool truck to come around and get a new one. I should take pics of some of the breaker bars and gigantic sockets we have for the heavy machinery.

Only 300 bones a month.. which I think is hella cheap..

Has a new furnace which with the heat and electric runs about 60 a month for us, and water is ~30 every 3 months.. split between 3 people is gravy work for coming up with that kinda cash..

Update on my current box build, busted out a spray gun I had laying around that I never used before to lay down some automotive filler primer. It turned out to be a pos it was sputtering like a mother even when I was spraying thinner to clear it out.

Heres what it looks like so far.

Keep in mind that line is a shadow and I will be spraying at least another 2 coats of primer.

beginning of the day new years day about 4 years ago.

End of the day about 9 hours later. The door behind the frame is 13' tall and I believe 10' wide, big enough to put our 10-wheeler in there if need be or the camper.

http://photos-b.ak.facebook.com/photos-ak-sf2p/v13/200/23/41901877/n41901877_30007569_7887.jpg

Best shot I can find showing what the shop was like. Roughly 1500 s.f. I think and you could maybe get 1 car in there if ya moved a few things around.

I really miss the place, I'll try and get some pics later tonight of what we currently have setup.

I am guessing by some of your shops, part of your income must come from these things? Or have inthe past? I have been working on mine for two years, and won't post it for fear of being shamed by some of you guys.

NICE places guys.
