Very nice looking stuff, don't clean it too much or it won't be as legit.

Good tools always have a nice used patina.

also soon you will have one or two less fingers - be careful and use pushing blocks

Got to play with my press today.
Not nearly as fun as some of the stuff you guys are doing, but still fun.

Scroll saws are nice and all, but it's a pretty specialised little tool that really you either need or you don't. If you do "scrolling stuff", then yeah - it's a requirement, but it's very rare that you'd be in the middle of a project and find yourself thinking "OMG, a scroll saw would be so handy right now."

Looking at that set of table saw, bandsaw, jointer planer and drill press... the next tools I'd think to add would be a router table (possibly as a DIY extension wing hanging off the table saw) and thickness planer, though you can get away with using the table saw for thicknessing smaller stock.

Ya. Need thickness planer n new saw blade. The router table I'm undecided. Less crucial. Next stop is making rolling carts for all the tools. Gonna add 1/2in bolts to screw down through the cart to lift the casters off the floor and to level out the machine when in use. + add sub panel in basement to run the tooling. Got to run 220v circuit may as well add a panel so I can run one less 110 from the main box + get 1 additional 110circuit on a different leg to supply the garage 30 amp power.

That'll prevent blowing a breaker every time a tool is on n someone hits the garage door opener. #winning

I wish I had a press. And an entire alignment system. And a lift. And a welder.

Right now I don't even have air, compressor is in about 20 parts on my garage floor right now.

Entire alignment system? You mean like a frame machine or front end alignment? If you're getting that crazy just take it to a body shop for the pull and finish it yourself. You don't need a lift either, most jobs can be completed with a good floor jack and big jack stands. The press I've only had a few years, but it's so much nicer than a ball joint press. Harbor fright has a 20 ton press for 149$ now. Don't cheap out on the welder. A wire feed flux core that will convert to mig is all you need for 99% of automotive welding. Get one with a 'contractor' so the wire is energized only when the trigger is pulled. Your eyes will thank you. Wire feed welders are stupid easy to weld with, but you'll pick up bad habits if you plan on learning to weld with anything else.

I recently saw this guy's design, I really like the way he does his retracting wheels:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7TTnb3TyH5Y

As for tool stands, Matthias Wandel does some really good stuff, these are really sturdy, simple, and not overly bulky

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gm8Cy60MYFg


As for saw blades: Assuming it you're doing it for 'woodworkingy stuff' and not buliding a house, for the table saw I'd recommend a square-cut, fine tooth blade.. it'll give you clean cut with a flat bottom, very nice. Bandsaw blade, I use a carbide tip blade myself (a Lennox Tri-Master). It's expensive, but the carbide teeth stay sharp a long time, and it cuts really nicely. There's no set to the teeth so it runs straight and leaves a clean cut without being deflected back and forth by an alternating set of teeth cutting one side of the stock at a time. I use that for most of my work, have got a little 1/4" blade for tighter curves if I need it, but I really hate having to set everything back up again after a bandsaw blade change, so it's a rare thing I do.

Thanks for the saw blade tips. I'll read that again when I buy one. Matthias has great designs. I really like his geared finger joint sled.

I already ordered the parts to make the standoffs. Same system the portable machines at work use for leveling. Maybe I'll do a post idk.

I have to keep all this in check on the Lotus: caster, camber, toe front and back, thrust angle, ride height, and corner balance. I have a buddy that has scales, toe plates, and caster/camber measuring tools, but not in my own shop. I need to check them if I make suspension or weight changes, which at this point I do pretty frequently. It's important to realize that almost every adjustment on this car affects everything else. The dealership charges $500 for alignment. I have 2 jacks and 4 flat top jack stands but working on it at that height is back breaking. Most of what needs fab work is aluminum so that limits welding choices, the car is mostly aluminum.

I should be able to find room for a press, will consider that. I also have an old drill press that needs motor work that would make a fantastic addition to the garage if I get around to fixing it.

If anyone is looking for REAL tools, I would highly recommend searching your local craigslists and estate sales for delta/walker turner presses, wilton/columbian/parker vises, and other quality old american tools in good condition or in need of small repairs. Ebay has become ridiculous for anything but parts lately. Check the runout on drill presses and lathes/mills, replace bearings if necessary and that's really about all you've got to do other than motors, which can be found cheap. They're all cast iron tools and durable as ****. They also cost less than Chinese **** from hazard fraught, and they've already outlived several lifetimes of that garbage by now. My next purchase is a Bridgeport.

Here's some of mine. I've paid under $1000 for all of this stuff combined and it'll outlast my grandkids. I've only had time to restore the vise so far.

1941 Wilton 6" bullet vise




1941 Delta drill press that was in service at a navy base since ww2



1939 South Bend 9a lathe



I hate my goddamn press, it's a rickety pile of **** but I couldn't do things like this without it. Hazard fraught angle grinders last me forever for $10 though, and they're so cheap that I have one for every kind of abrasive wheel. Their larger press is actually kinda nice though.

Awesome!! I just picked one of those up last month, but it needs a lot of restoration. Yours looks great though. I was going to bring it in the house and use it to start gunsmithing. Does it have a serial plate on the right side (while facing it) of the machine? Definitely looks to be a 30s-40s model that's pretty original...that work area is almost perfect, too.


As an aside, these companies almost (or did) put themselves out of business because how well everything was made. Simple, sturdy and reliable. Also, when the war ended, surplus tools flooded back into the civilian market and also put many of these companies out of business.

Everyone dogs harbor freight, but they really do ****ing deserve it...that **** is garbage. I buy pry bars and zip ties from there at this point. DeWalt seems as if they've had a drop in quality lately, too. Especially the 20v batteries in my experience.
