Fabricated a stainless grab handle
Fabricated a mount for the rear door for the Kinsman shower

Progress on the home shop is making way! I have most of the garage cleaned out from junk, got the welder and cart put together

Changed out my plug i had put in when i bought the house, to the correct one for the welder!

(installed one is right)
Then the tool cart came in, this will house my drill press and sanding station.  Everything has to be on wheels in such a small space so i can actually use the space.

And I also got about 3/4 of the way done with my welding table!
2x2x2/16 base

3/8 plate top

4x6 size

Casters will be installed today, and the top dropped on as well.  Then its home to the shop.  
Today and tomorrow I hope to have most everything done, and start actually setting the garage up and maybe make something. 
I got argon for the tig, an extension cord that will be here friday that will allow me to use the welder in the driveway if i had to as well.  Slowly but surely I am working my way to independence from the main shop at work when they have larger projects that take up the work space

VanGoOutdoors. Just want to say I am going to steal your drill press on a tool cart idea. I will put my bench grinder on the back side. This will add some floor space to my garage.
