Hey Monte,

Is that shop for business? It looks like it is a in concrete tilt-up type building?

No business, just Datsuns and other hobby stuff, basically to replace the old home shop. Whats nice about this commerical building, is that each unit is owner occupied, has 20' ceilings, 3 phase power. The front and back walls are concrete tilt-up with metal studs between units. It also has an office with a kitchenette, I real man cave!

Hey, no problem, I have so much stuff to still do. Wire up the air compressor, install the air piping, install the step-up 220v to 380v 3 phase transformer for the CNC,install the VFD for the manual mill ,level the CNC & the one manual mill, make a grinder bench for the various grinders. To say the least, I won't be working on the Datsuns for a while.

Sorry to disappoint you guys on the SSE stuff, just being doing Garage/ FJ40 things. First the wife decided to call the new place Corporate HQ so new signage;

Image

Made a little wall art for the front office with some 1930's headlamps with remote control leds for the lights. Needed a grill, but all the ones on ebay etc. were crazy money so I made one;

Image

All done after a little polishing/wiring;

Image

Made a grinding/polishing bench that has all the bench grinders/belt sander in one place,so that i can wheel the whole thing outside or by the back door. It keep the mess to a min. It has drawers to keep,air tools, Rolocs,grinding wheels, sanding belts all in one place;

Image

Got the air lines done and polished up. Also put in high flow connectors on all of outlets and the hoses;

Image

And also have been working on the big project, the FJ40. After seeing that the FJ's are going for some crazy money, I am taking my time at the details;

Image

So you can see I have been busy, but not on the SSE. HQ is pretty much done, only real thing that is left to do is some small parts storage cabinets. Hope when the weather starts warming up, then full blast ahead on the FJ, then the SSE.

Wall art is awesome. Beautiful space. It's much like the space I have been renting for the past 10 years - commercial area, tilt up construction, 21' high ceiling. I have 1 concrete wall on one side as well, and steel stud wall on the other.
It's great because I could make as much noise as I wanted, anytime of the day. And crank the music over it all. Rent from my good friend who shares the space with me has been more than reasonable. But the distance from home over the last number of years just means it hasn't been utilized, which means projects haven't been moving forward and really the low rent hasn't even been much worth the costs. Hence the Shed...in the back yard solving the proximity issue - now motivation will need to solve the project moving forward issue!
Power is a concern in my new place, however. I will run a 3Ph generator for the machines, but will only be able to run one machine at a time. I did build a nearly 12' ceiling, it was th4e max I could do under building restriction in my residential area. The stereo certainly won't be vibrating the building any more, as I have neighbors to keep happy. The Shed will work fine,but I sure did enjoy the commercial space and will remember that. But I am a bit envious of you being able to build your own commercial space though, it's truly perfect! And looks bright, organized and clean, which makes all the difference in any space - regardless of location. Great job. And nice FJ!

Thanks! You should really look into the Phase Perfect, you can run more than one machine at a time and the power is cleaner than the power company and when I sold it, pretty much got my money back. Pm me if you want details.
