I'm almost ready to share some pictures from the re-organized shop, but not quite. Here is a sneak peak of my re-organized tool board. I bought a new set of pliers today on sale at Canadian Tire. I never seem to lose screwdrivers, but for some reason I can't hold onto pliers...
Brenda says she is thankful because now she doesn't need to go digging around to find a tool that she might need. Power tools are in the bin under the workbench.
The other tool I picked up today was a dial indicator ($15 at the local hardware store). They actually told me the other day I was the first person to ask in many years for one and when I went in today to buy it they knocked $5 off the price.... sometimes it pays to shop local.
This simple tool will be invaluable in measuring some of the running gear of my engine turns straight and true. It will also be helpful in determining the suitability of the salvage parts (crankshaft, cam, etc) being sent for rebuild.
Hopefully the shop muck out will be "complete" this week and I can start actively purchasing a core engine to work on.
