Greetings: Have slowly making my detached 1.5 car old rickety garage into a place to get my stuff done over the past 10 years. Used to service my snowmobile in there when I rode every few days, but since the car restoration became serious, this place has become a multi use shop; with the car parked in a car shelter in front of the garage. Ghetto of sorts, but when you have limited space and big plans, you make do.
Garage is 13 x 25 inside space with only a 7 ft ceiling, but a 2/3 loft I built for storage a few years ago. One wall is a workbench and tool cabinets with shelving above; there's a home built 60 gal 17 [email protected]
compressor (fully plumbed with 3/4" iron pipe, drops and multiple outlets, a welding table I built, several work benches, a plasma cutter, Mig welder, metal chop saws, drill press and a bunch of other metal working stuff. There are a few wood tools incl a small table saw that need to be moved from the basement upstairs.
Brand new 2hp HF dust collector sitting in the shed, where the sandblasting cabinet will also move to once all this gets plumbed in after winter.
Over Xmas I built a serious car audio test bench/switching system around a 70 Amp Astron power supply, Odyssey AGM battery and full switching and functional car audio system using an Alpine CD player, and Alphasonik eq/crossover with multi inputs and outputs, driving an Orion 225HCCA high current amp in stereo and a Rockford Fosgate Punch45HD running 2 Ohm mono; all this is powering a pair of Axiom bookshelf speakers and a Fosgate HX2 1000Watt 12" dual voice coil subwoofer. Music we have, as well as the ability to easily test any car audio component from a head unit to a tweeter or amplifier.
Will post some pics once I figure out how.
