I wish I could spend more time with the Camera, but it doesn't pay the bills. This does.
First thing in the morning is to get some heat going by lighting my Home made Potbelly Stove.
The Tool Box, home base central.
This mornings project, putting a severely abused edger back into one piece.
I spend most days looking at scenes like this.
And have spent probably a 1/8 of my life cleaning carburetors like this one.
Well better stop screwing around with the Camera and get back to Work.

What a great idea Robert. So interesting, it feels like I'm walking through the shop with you as you explain what's what. Don't know why but for some reason I thought you had a gun shop?

I may have posted something about that previously. The wood shop is still in storage but I was making coustom stocks for vintage rifles and revolvers, as well as coustom gun cabinets. When I can afford to get into a bigger building I will revive that part of the business.
So it's your turn Graham, this is a pictorial throw down you know.

I'll let you know the next time I'm going up to Wyoming. You can take a day off and we'll go shoot some photos!!

Great pics Robert. My oldest son has an auto shop. He can and does repair anything. Part of my morning routine is logging into LS after I read the news. Always with two dogs at my feet.

Thanks John, you could shoot the morning routine, well the PG parts of it anyway.

I forgot to add: I love your stove Robert. There is something about using wood to heat that has always appealed to me. We had a fireplace in Europe but plaintiff No. 4 would not let me use it because she did not want soot everywhere!

I Love workshops. Thanks for sharing a little piece of your daily routine. The wood burner is tops.

Unique use of a rim for the stove Robert. What is the top made from…I don’t recognize that part.

You're certainly living a very unique life Robert! Wish I had a shop like this to keep the bucks from coming in regardless of the fact that I'm beyond retirement age!
Had I been close to you I definitely would have come around regularly to have a peek at what you're busy with! 😉

Fantastic, Robert. The ‘abused edger' photo is my favorite. I've always wished I knew how to take engines apart and put them back together. May be a retirement project for me… I love images of machinery, and these are great.
Gears are Beautiful, eh? Blue gears image from my downtown, antique gears from upstate New York.

Thanks Anne, I know what the second Photo is, but not the first, the hydraulic cylinder is familiar but not the rest. Good examples of machinery.
