Impressive workshop, would love to have that in my basement!
Are you keeping aluminum and steel dust separated in your dust collecting system?

I just leave dust collector off for
metal and sweep up after.

I love the harbor freight work benches. I only have one, but it is in constant use. Holds my harbor freight mini mill which I still have not used. Talked to someone that provides that parts that will turn it into a automatic CNC mill. However, that costs more than the mill cost.

Good idea! I know some people aren't aware of what can happen collecting steel and aluminum grinding dust together until it's too late :ooo:

Very nice Brian, I do some stuff at work some at home. Between my Lotus seven, bikes motor and push my garage has minimal space for a lot of work. I have a Lathe that is still at work because it won't fit.
