    Easy wife uses something similar to slide furniture out of the way to do workoutsin front of the TV. Slides slick enough she can move a big ass couch by herself.

    Nice. Is that an insert or did you cut the floor and then re-cement? How much of a gap is around the edges when it’s down? Where’s the controller? Thanks.

    Search his content, I believe he put up a post of the build a few years ago when he and some buddies did it.

    "When the lift is down it is flat with the floor"

    So what you are saying is the lift no longer raises as high and after you take the bike off, you need to, again, raise the lift and remove the wheel vise and stop, then again, lower the bench. Right?

    There is probably 1/4 inch gap between the lift and the floor, that worked out well. We cut the floor and then made forms for the pit and poured it. I moved the control to the front of the lift, it's electric so it's just an up down and off toggle . If you look closely you can see the electric cord is inside the rubber cord cover I got at H.D.

    You're right, the lift doesn't go as high as it did although that hasn't been an issue at all. The wheel vise isn't a problem because I park the bike on the lift anyway so I might lose 6 inchs in front. It wouldn't take long to remove the vise but why bother.

    Not a lot of progress, but chugging along. Taping done, started mudding, filled in window going on to kitchen as it’s against code to leave the window in with a garage here. Slump block bricks on order for exterior....

    I see a lot of folks hanging commonly used tools on the wall over the bench. How do you like that? Is it a novelty or do you like having them there even after quite some time.

    I like my tools there, I have Always had them at the wall, never have to search for anything, as they all have their spot. It only works if you put them back there after use, haha. Special tools you don't use every day are in the drawers. I'm doing it this way for over 30 years.

    It's a great way to find the tools you use the most!

    Yup, I usually have some common ones up, but see folks have lots and some run all sizes from small to large and everything in between. For me, I’d only use some, not all. Thinking I’ll only hang the ones I use instead of a whole set or range.

    More progress. Going to start designing the bench. Think it’s going to be on wheels. Haven’t decided yet.

    I wasnt a believer, then a built a tool wall of aluminum pegboard right behind me when im standing at my MC lift. Basically, i can spin 180 and have all my tools right there in front of my face to choose from. No more walking over, opening a drawer, finding the tool, and then not bothering to put it back. Just turn, grab, use, and rehang right away. Dont know why i didnt do it sooner.
