The Good Bad & the Ugly Shops

Old RonOld Ron Senior MemberPosts: 1,487 Senior Member
I have talked to guys on here & they say you should see my shop .......here is a place to show the messes we all get into. I think I am the king of messy shops but am willing to give the crown to someone else. I work on projects in a bunch of areas so my messes are spread out a bit. ( working on it )

    Both of those are neat, well-kept, and organized, compared to mine.

    No, I don't want to be embarassed, too.

    My problem is that I have several different locations where I have started over, organizing in a fresh place. Then, I get sidetracked and never finish. Then, my wife comes along and sees a junk pile, and begins to contribute to it. The minute she places some foreign object in my carefully organized junk pile, it completely disrupts my organizational plan, and I can't find anything.

    My thought is if we show the messes we are in & see others are way better it will give us the incentive to make ours  better.
    The big surprise to me is in all the messes we turn out nice things.

    I knew a guy once that actually traced his hanging tools outline with a sharpy on the peg board.

    I think that's just un-American

    I know there are guys on here like that & down deep I wish mine was that organized. I have 4 or 5 more project areas but won't show those until I know I'm not alone ! !  lol

    My desk is so clean and organized, it makes others sick.

    I will be more than happy to give you the clutter crown mike.
    Like I said I have 4 or 5 more areas that you have not seen yet.
    But ............................I am trying really hard to get organized. The volume of stuff in small places is really tough to organize. And you & I can not be the only ones on here with this problem. I just know there is enough that we could start a therapist group. Maybe we could start sending treasures to the organized group. ( I would go broke with shipping costs ! )

    My Dad does that and writes the name of the tool inside the outline. He even has a sign out sheet incase someone borrows his tools lol.

    Once I get a better idea of how I want things, my tool
    box will be laid out with Kaizen foam. Foam will be cut to the shape of the tool. Tool gets replaced after use in its own spot.

    You guys are entering another dimension. There's a sign post up ahead.......

    My experience of working in an office (near the end of a long career) was that those folks that had a clean desk weren't doing anything. It's not a hard and fast rule, but it is sometimes indicative, unless the person has CDO.

    You should contact "Pickers", they could help you clean that place up.
    I have a need for speed

    I spent about 6 hours at the country shop yesterday .......this organizing stuff is gonna kill me.
    After all that work you would not notice I did a thing.  ( that sucks ) I didn't realize how much stuff I ran out there last fall just to get it out of my way for the winter. I forgot that I took my hot blueing tanks out there. My blast cabinet is out of media the gas powered water pump was buried & would not start. I needed a file & no file. I have hundreds of files here.  Had a cave in in my semi trailer & cant even walk down the middle of it. My tiller now has boxes of wire & lighting supply s all over it. This is going to be a long summer !

    I was gonna take a few pictures of my shop but I got busy making chips on the lathe, and then I came back down to the house for some refreshment, had a major case of brain flatulence, and set myself down in front of the drafting board and did some drawing. Might let CPJ tackle what I just drew; it's dangerous, or could be dangerous. I'll hold his beer and hide behind a tree while he lights it off. :D

    I have spent 2 days now at the country shop . Doesn't look like I did much ........but I have.
    Managed to get the garden tilled up & the old tobacco stalks thrown out. The finding the tiller under a cave in of stuff got interesting. I ran around yesterday taking pictures of all the stuff before I started this nightmare ! Every day I walk away sore & beat but feel like I did something in the right direction. The auction I went to Saturday was not bad......only bought a few things.
    11 quarts of new oil for 3 bucks ......couldn't turn that down. An electric chain saw ....3 bucks.
    Nice little fold up 2 wheel cart .....6 bucks. An art print ....25 bucks. A box of I have no idea what's in there 5 bucks ......still need to look through that one lol  If I got the right box there is a odd little thing that looked like a pencil sharpener  with a crank on the side.

    While trying to organize the contents of several mystery boxes, you bought another one for five bucks?👀

    This is very good 👍
