Most everyone here has seen the Jensen #100 workshop.  I have one, it's great and there isn't much else Jensen made for your steam engine to drive.  Awhile ago I thought, "Hey, wouldn't it be neat to have a workshop of the larger Wilesco machines in the same format as the #100 workshop?"  So over a couple years I bought the necessary pieces and put them all together.

The table saw, grinder, drill press and line shaft all came from one Wilesco toy.  The punch and power hacksaw were bought separately.  Also did a little work to the lineshaft to make everything work well.

I really like the look of the workshop when it's hooked-up to the Jenson 20G.  I think the larger equipment scales better with the larger Jensen engine.

And here's a video showing everything running.   The 20 can still handle running the generator and the workshop together, but it's getting a workout.

Nicely Done  8)  The Wilesco tools always look better off their original tin bases

And you are right, it is a good match  8)

I'm normally not too taken with Wilesco workshops but this is actually very nice - you've done an excellent of putting it together into a good looking setup!

I sure have to agree. Your Wilesco "100" style looks really nice.

And......

Your  Jensen #20-G looks awesome...!!!

especially coupled with your work shop!

Really looks good! Only thing better would be to paint the wood base blue.
Naw, looks best as is!   :)
