Hello all, I made this video well series of videos to give a walk through of my shop as members of a wood working board were asking to see it. As it is already up and loaded on Youtube, I am giving a link to it here.
Watch or not, comment or not, I just thought I would put it up.

Warning, all 4 videos together take nearly an hour to watch. I just went through the shop with a camera and gave a QUICK explanation of what is being filmed. I thought it to be about 15 minutes when filming a was taken back a little when it came out to 55 minutes! LOL!

If you want a little peak into my world, Wayne's World (I have a yearly blacksmithing event with that name!) you might want to wander over to take a look :D

I had a quick look at the first one, it looks like a well-appointed shop. Hopefully I'll get time over the weekend to view them all.

Cheers

Wow! Wayne, my friend, you have got a lot of gear!!! Thanks for sharing a chunk of your life with us. Unfortunately, I've only gotten a chance to see the first segment, but I gotta say...when you got over near some of your coffee stuff, I really wanted to see more. As a tinkerer in woodworking, I was very envious of your grinder area, lathes, bandsaw, radial arm saw and drill press...particularly as I have none of those, want them all, but have nowhere to setup a shop.

Thanks Ron,
In the coffee section, well it changes all the time but right now, I have a Bunn VPR APS pour over drip airpot brewer, a Newco plumb in drip brewer that needs a new control board, A HX, commercial single GH espresso machine that needs a Pstat and some gauges. As it needs these parts, it may be a PID conversion for me as I already own the PID and finding the temp gauge may be an issue and the Sylvia that I put the PID on and rebuilt last year, it travels with me when I go to vacation but other than that, it does not get much use. I used to have it at work but it was used little more than it gets now. At work is a Curtis commercial bulk grinder (like in the supermarket with the large knob on the front) and a Curtis pourover air pot brewer, an electric kettle ($14 wallmart cheepee) an Aeropress, a harrio V60 and press pot.

Also in the shop, there is my long time personal SJ that has been converted to doserless (I would convert it back if I had a doser to put on it) my refinished Major (there used to be 3 but two were sold unrefinished, one just a week or so ago) A NS MCD 65 grinder, a Bunn LPG 2 grinder,  a Bunn RT plumb in 5 burner drip brewer, a  Showtime oven I was going to convert to a drum roaster and like, 5 commercial Vita Mix blenders that were parted out to repair 5 other blenders (I bought a lot of 10 non working blenders at a great price, new each is $1K retail).

On my back patio coffee bar used when I host my event is a 2 gp commercial HX machine, a Bunn G9 2 HD portion control drip grinder, a Curtis, plumb in air pot drip brewer. In the house is my ECM A1 espresso machine, the current espresso grinder, a tamping machine, knock box, vac pot, moka pot, press pot, aeropress, mypressi and a Solis 166 to be used for travel.

All "inventory" is subject to change depending on what I find as I make my rounds of favorite haunts.

I nearly bought a small hot dog roll roasting machine and bun steamer, it was at a good price but I had no place to store it while on vacation and when we left, it was after the stores were closed and I did not want to wait another day for them to open, so I left it for someone else. If it is till there next year..... ????? LOL! No I do not have a use for it, I just think it would be neat to have :D

Wood tools, most are on wheels so I can move them to the big door for dust control reasons.The only machines that are "setup" are the lathes and the table saw. well there is the work bench but as it is used for both wood and steel, it was not counted as a "wood" tool. Which band saw did you like? The BIG one is my favorite, 2,500 pounds of cast iron and solid industrial build, what a great tool, it has a 36 inch throat with a 36 x 36 inch tilting table. I just took out the upper wheel to repair the tension adjustment mech, the wheel and mount weighed like 150 pounds, it took a shop hoist to get it in and out, a PITA for sure but now it works properly, like it was new again.

The number of things you've acquired is impressive to say the least...and a couple of my friends call me mr. gadget...but I've probably got less than 25% of what you have.  Anyhow, I wish I had some of it.  The bandsaw...well, if I ever get the space, I think it would not be the huge commercial type you have, but rather, something of good quality, but much smaller.  I could certainly make use of a grinding and buffing station, as well as a stationary saw of some type, like a radial arm, and a stationary belt/disc sander.  Heck, I wish I had space for a workbench that didn't have to be unfolded for every use.  Then I'd put a vise (which I sorely need) on it.
