With the projects list growing and seemingly endless distractions , I am hoping that having a new dedicated workshop will refocus my energy to move forward with them.... .
Its not the large garage I was hoping for but it was free and now I am making it suit my purposes... So far I have replace the rotten paneling and some other wood ... Painted the floor and I will do some form of insulation so I can use it year round... yesterday I put in a window so it wouldnt be so dark inside. I did put in lights as well... They were turned on for about an hour then the electric went out and the breaker blows every time I plug in the outlet. so I am back to running an extension cord ... for now at least till I figure out where the short is...

Any way, progress is being made and then I will start the projects again !!

Thanks guys!! ...Yeah the piles of stuff on the shelves is just the tools and crap that I took out of the boxes.... The goal will be to not have anything , tolls included, in that space that are not for the sole purpose of fixing/building/maintaining a British motorcycle...

One thing I would like to fix is this old fan... It worked great when I found it but then quit so I started to take it apart hoping I would see what was wrong but I did not... Might be over my head to fix it .... Any thread recommendations on fixing old fans??
