    Take a look at the picture. Just to the right of the rear tire is a black object on top of the generator. Those are my new coveralls so that I wouldn't get my clothes dirty. Did I wear the coveralls? Of course not! With this new table lift, I don't have to crawl around on the floor anymore. I guess the coveralls will have to wait until Winter when it's cold in there.

    His is from Harbor Freight by the look of it. I have one as well. You can get them under $300 with the right coupons!

    Jim is correct on both counts. Harbor Freight...and they often have coupons for 20% and/or $100 off. I got this one for about $300 using two discounts. It may not be suitable for a professional mechanic's shop, but mine is for the occasional oil change and other maintenance. Many people (as seen here) have had good luck with them for years of use.

    Shed update. Workshop area is now fully electricked, and also painted. Still need to install the air conditioner, and an internal window. Heater comes later in the year. Also need to trim, and paint the floor. Then I can get benches and cabinets made and installed, and move all the tools in. Great stuff!

    I am pretty happy with it. It is wired with 3 individual 220V circuits for machine tools, an individual circuit for the air compressor, which will be situated outside the main shop, 2 separate 110V outlet circuits, and a circuit to power the furnace when installed. Obviously the lighting is on its own circuit too - as is the air conditioner.

    This is going to be great.

    On my property outside of Idaho Springs in Arapahoe National Forest -- It started as a screen house but now has waxed canvas curtains that velcro down -- and a Vermont Catings Stove -- toasty warm -- hoping to put a keg in the creek this summer and maybe a waterwheel to generate some 12 volt power --
