Lookin' good Frank! I have a Wilton vice about that size - one of the most used tools in my shop. One suggestion is to cover the workbench with 1/8" Masonite (or similar.)

Here's an image of basically how I designed my compressed air supply. I used type "L" copper pipe which takes more pressure.

It looks like the handle on that snow blower will fold. That should save you some room.

Black 2003 Rubicon Set up how I want, with what I want, for how I use it. Just like everyone else.

Thanks JC but I am too cheap. When it gets too bad I'll just throw some more 1/4 on top.

Using "M" copper tube. My Dad always used sch 40 PVC. I was always waiting for that stuff to blow.

It will but I just have not gotten around to selecting its final resting place. Still emptying boxes from the move and need to move it around a lot.

It really getting closer to the point of getting Stinger on the rack and finally finishing him up!

I am not going to argue with her over this one. There will be bigger issues in the future over which to fall on the sword

Looks like some good planning. Why did you reinforce the cross beams?

Ah, kindred spirit! I like the chrome 2.75" FFAR. I certainly lit off my share.

You are giving John a run for his money for the shop of the year award, Frank.
