So What's In Your Garage/Shed????

Post  Steam Traction World on Wed 18 Nov 2009, 8:49 am

Hi All,

After the recent comment from one of our customers stating he has no room for a lathe or mill in his garage because it is full with his PORSCHE. It raises the question.......................


What have you all got in your Garage/Sheds????

I'll start.

My garage is full to the brim. Between the kids bikes and my fishing kit i have probably enough stock of Nuts, Ferrules, Globe Valves, Lubricators etc to keep SteamFittings in business for the next 10 years, with enough Steam Raising Blowers (about 10,000 at the last count) to last not only my life time but my kids kids kids kids lifetime.

Additional to this i have half a dozen dead mice (thanks Hazel), a fridge and a tumble drier.

Fortunately i have private storage for my Aston Martin, Steam Car and Harley. Laughing Laughing Laughing

I do hate nosey kids, but as you asked so nicely car wise I have a Westfield SEI with a highly tuned Vauxhall 2ltr 16v race engine, which is available for sale if anyone’s interested, I also have a Dodge Viper SRT10 with the 8.3ltr V10 this only has just over 2k miles and surprisingly is for sale.

The Dodge comes with a supply of re-enforced underpants so TonyT should be Ok, only people with lots of folding stuff need apply.

Any questions I can answer, I built the Westfield have all the bills and photos, I also purchased the Viper new in 2004 I have some other "toys" Dean has seen the supercharged one and yes Dean it's for sale as I will be ordering a new one very soon so start counting your pennies.

Other than tools,tooling and all that goes with tooling etc, I believe I have the ultimate workshop components and have listed in priority as follows:

1: Kettle with tea coffee sugar powdered crap called milk n a mug.
2: Radio/ipod set up.
3: Comfy chair.
4: Numerous full beer cans dotted about the place.
5: Numerous empty beer cans dotted about the place.
6: The obligatory boob calendar that's 1997 I think but damn December does look nice lol!
7: Good ole fashioned heater.
8: Ash tray ( I DO NOT use my floor or workbench as an ashtray )
9: Supply of roll-ups (n i don't mean me missus's nylons Wink HONEST)

As any red blooded male can see, this is what we engineers call HEAVEN!!! No more and no less!!!

Hope you're all well

Hmmm Vapor nice choice with Viper, I sold a 74 Trans Am which I had owned man and boy and worked on extensively to fund the 4" Burrell. Since then the Burrell obviously lives in the garage along with 5 Pinball tables which I have discovered is another amusing hobby in which the tables themselves dont loose any money when being bought and sold. I have had a total of 13 tables so far buying and selling each one for what I paid for them and making a few quid on some when they need restoration. There is also a pot belly stove and a radio. I am considering a bed since letting the wife know I had signed up for the DCC road loco. Evil or Very Mad

I forgot to add I have also taken up making Marble roller coasters having seen a website of a guy who makes them at an enormous cost inspiring me to have a go myself. I have set up a website and have actually sold one as a commisioned piece following a demonstration of my work at a rally Have a look at www.marbleruns.co.uk

In between all this I also play with the two kids and the wife when shes friendly Embarassed Laughing and sometimes even manage to go to work affraid

My shed contains a collection of scratch built, model boats, some completed and others 'ongoing projects', a well used pillar drill, a growing collection of jam-jars containing nuts, bolts, washers other 'useful one day' bits, a couple of push bikes and this:



My 1946, 'Model 18' Norton that I still race in hill climbs and sprints!

What's in my shed

Post  thehawk on Sat 28 Nov 2009, 8:24 am

I'm just relaxing in my daughter's apartment on holiday in New Jersey, not far from the Big Apple, so I have time to join this jolly discussion about junk in ones shed/garage. Well how's this for a conversation stopper! In my garage, apart from the 4inch Burrell parts waiting for assembly, I have the tuning coils and oscillator from a 1938 Marconi 'SWB8' shortwave radio transmitter. Another of my pastimes is amateur historian of Marconi Radio Stations and along with a large number of photographs that I have been given I also get some of the hardware. All totally useless unless a museum is interested but none the less a small part of 20th century radio history. Perhaps I'll dig out a photo sometime. Anyway there you are, it's interesting that a love of steam brings us all together! ...........cheers Paul

yeah, the green one was an ongoing project. it wasn't actually that bad to be honest. it had very low millage and was a complete and original car, quite a rare thing for a classic mini.

the photo above was taken for a magazine feature, they were running stories on peoples projects

exact same spec as my red one only it featured the optional extras
