It might not look like much at the moment, but what you can see is the makings of a new workbench. The plan is for an all steel bench across the back of the workshop, 3 and a half metres long.
I’m welding it up with a mate as a made to measure item, with under shelf. It’s over engineered at m6 plate and box section with a 5mm wall, but strong is good and you never know when you’ll need an impromptu bomb shelter.
In fact when I’ve installed my lathe and I’m working on a former bomber engine, on my bombproof bench, the irony won’t be lost on me!
It’s a slow process but eventually the workshop will be up to the job. By that time I should have my design finalised and the big question (can I get the parts I need) answered!
