It's been a while but I think now that things have calmed down slightly, I will kick off a new section. I spend a great deal of time in my garage and having just moved, half of my workshop is at the old address and half is here. Usually when blokes move, it does not cause much of a logistical issue. Unfortunately, I have a heap of tools and some of them weigh more than the average trailer can carry. This issue forced me to lash out and buy a manual forklift.
I only buy what I can afford and don't buy tools on credit. I like the feeling I get from knowing I own what I have in the workshop and prefer to wait and save. I also like to buy quality tools so despite the temptation to buy a far east import, I waited and bought a forklift manufactured in the Czech Republic. I'll try and keep this section updated as I develop the garage. The plan is to have it insulated, have central vaccum and airlines, and to have 3 phase to power the machines. This won't happen overnight but will take some time to acheive. This is how the garage looks at the moment:
