My wife and I are looking at turning my hobby into some extra cash. I've been buying and repairing/parting out bikes for awhile. I usually only do 1 or 2 a year at the most. She's really into working on bikes and mentioned that she wouldn't mind doing something like that herself. She's unemployed and has severe social phobia so she isn't able to work a normal job. Going to the mailbox just to ship out parts is pretty hard on her, but she does it about 2-3 times a week. She's got a bad back, so one of my big issues is making the shop a bit more "cripple friendly" Right now I have a decent shop in my 1 car garage, roughly 600-700 sq. feet and I have a pretty good selection of tools. All your basic hand tools, wrenches, sockets, tons of screwdrivers and some more motorcycle specific stuff. I would like some opinions on other tools that I may need. right now I'm looking at: A motorcycle lift - The harbor freight lift has good reviews, but I'm hesitant to drop more than $100 on anything HF makes. A parts washer - same as above, HF has a 20 gallon washer for $89. It's water based cleaners only, which isn't a big issue for me. Some kind of low impact/cushy mats - standing sucks, so does dropping bolts etc. on concrete. I'd like some decently thick mats to provide comfort. A comfortable mid-height rolling stool - I've been considering an office chair, but I'd really like something with a tool/parts tray on it. Rolling shelving units - I have to have somewhere to store all the parts. I'm totally open to suggestions on the above as well as anything else you might have to add. We're going to play around with this some through winter and see how we do. If we make any cash I may consider actually turning it into a business, otherwise it will stay a small time hobby. I mainly just want my wife to feel like she's helping out, she enjoys the work and is really good at it. If she could be comfortable out there then we could get a lot done.
