I was going to try to not get one of the stand up oil catch drain dealios but I think that will be easier than dealing with a drain pan on a jack tray.

Thanks! It is nice to have a 2nd chance after spending 10 years building and improving on my first shop. So far this one is exceeding the first by leaps and bounds even though it is smaller in size.

Big step today, two months after moving in I finally unpacked the last of the shop boxes...













I think I've decide this will be my "fab corner"... I've got a floor drill press and a 14" bandsaw coming next week and I need to build a rolling steel workbench that will fit against the wall when not in use.



My other choice to put the area is to park the RV all the way up to the back door and use the area right behind the front door. This may be a bit more convenient because closer to lift and tool area but electricity for the welder is more of a challenge there. Having the dirty area further away from my desk area might be a plus as well. We'll see...

So far I'm pleased as punch with how it is turning out. I hosed off the floor today and pushed the water out with a squeegee and it cleaned up pretty good. It wasn't slick at all when wet either BTW... I think it might be easier to clean up with a big mop and bucket but that's just one more thing I have to store the rest of the time when not using it. I'm considering it though. The shelves really helped consolidate my "treasures" and keep them in an orderly fashion. The wife was afraid they'd look "junky" but I think they look spectacular.

Looks spotless (as I would expect) and beautiful. Getting settled is always a nice feeling.

Thanks Greg! Hopefully I can keep it looking this way.

So This worked out pretty slick. I needed a way to get up on the mezzanine up above the bathroom that didn't take up any floor space when not in use. Found this handy dandy small space attic ladder that worked perfectly.



It has a spring loaded arm up top that helps pull it up and stow it when not in use.



The pole has a hook on the end that you use to pull the ladder down or push it up and there are push button locks that lock it in extended form. It's actually easier\better to go up and down than the 14' step ladder that I've been using and takes up a WHOLE lot less room.
