I will try to do a new video this weekend of my shop...I just haven't had the time...& most of my engines are not displayed, they're all on shelves many buried behind others.

These are definitely 2 shops to aspire for!

Thanks for posting the two great videos George and Jim.

This is a tour of my shop from about 10 years ago. I built a room in one corner of the basement about 12' x 12'. I have since replaced the round column Enco mill with a Grizzly knee mill but a lot of my engines were built with this mill. Computer is new plus added tooling.

George, your shop video reminded me of meeting you at the NAMES show shortly after the little V-twin was completed!

Please show a Video or Photo tour of your workshop/work area, it doesn't matter how big or small it is. If its the kitchen table or the coffee table that you work with engines...that's ok!
I remember Bruce took us on a guided tour of his workshop some years ago.
Hello Jim i have been asked to add my rather untidy workshop to this thread, its rather long so only half my contents on the video...Steve

Ah ha .... good on ya Steve. I see you found Jim's thread on workshop videos afterall, and went ahead and posted yours up.

Thanks again for the initial "private" tour, but I'm glad to see you are now sharing it with others as well. You have much of great interest to many of us here, much to be proud of, and well worth showing !!!

Steve, just spent lunch watching your tour. What a collection! The war items you've dug are impressive. Your collection has a great deal in common with mine...except I have substituted firearms for edged weapons.
The layout is quite nice, and well detailed. The spur with a timed stop is a great touch. I think I might take your idea and add a timed stop to my garden railway.
 Thanks for the tour, I enjoyed every minute.

Hello Benny im glad you liked it..we cannot have a proper collection of firearms over here so i have to satisfy myself with swords and bayonets.
The timed branch line has two rails but the other is manual but soon i am going to wire it up and fit the electronics to make it a timed line as well....Steve

Steve what a BRILLIANT tour of your man cave mate, I was enthralled every minute. Thanks for taking the time on the video to identify all the First World War relics that you have collected. My Grandfather was an Australian Light horseman in WWI.

Just a terrific man cave!

Hello Jim it was a bit of a mish mash and being unscripted i kept forgetting  the names of things which was annoying but i think most of it was self explanatory ....i missed a lot of stuff out because of time...i also have a 5 foot python in there as well which i forgot to mention ::)   ...Steve
