One of the major issues I've got is space, I've no lack of it but need to set up a dedicated place to make life easier. For example I use a back lean to for my tool station bits and bobs, the upstairs studio room has heaps of scratch materials and I use a portable work tray for soldering when I'm kit making, not to mention my unbuilt rolling stock kits and scenic stuff which is located in various other storage places around the house . So I need to focus where my bench work will be from now on and so this is what this thread will be about, in effect I'm doing what BR did in the 1960's when they closed down outlying goods depots to concentrate business at one central point. I've got quite a lot of tools used in scratch making anyway and buying a Proxxon TBM220 pillar drill with some other Proxxon stuff has heralded the need for a permanent and fixed work point for all my bench projects, plus I want to keep all my kit together in one place. So I've got a nice dry brick outbuilding with power and lighting already installed which I use in my business and a few years ago I build a nice sturdy bench under a window in there so this will be the start point in reorganizing my model making space. Anyway the TBM220 came yesterday and today I fitted the combination table, some more stuff like chuck and dividing head yet to arrive but here are a couple of pictures. Note the supply of Yorkshire Tea also. Both pillar drill and Yorkshire Tea are key assets for any work bench as you will appreciate.
