    Default madmagnus metal workshop

    Hi all!

    I'm Magnus from the north of Sweden and this is the beginning of my small home workshop.
    The garage was built by me during 2011 so i'm still in the installation phase.

    I've collected some new(old) machinery since this summer.
    Still looking for a large drillpress, Arboga or Strands.

    The workshop exterior.

    Interior, before the mill arrived.


    Sajo UF-52 duomill from 1971.


    Moved to it's current location.

    Herbert 2D capstan lathe with DRO.


    Old sajo saw.

    Sheetmetal shear.

    So how do you keep the bolts and washers from going down the floor drain? Great looking shop, keep your helmet on and join in here when ever you have time.

    The floor drain is just a 50 liter stainless "bucket" with no pipes attatched so i have to drain fluids manually.
    Since it's always dry down there, finding nuts and washers is not a problem

    I'ts a product called Minerit or Cembrite, 9mm fiber reinforced concrete sheets.
    I've made a lot of effort to make the workshop fireproof.

    What do you tow with that metal shear? I see it is fitted with a trailer ball....


    I have a good friend living in Gagnef with a ski house in Lofsdalen, But know little of the area myself.


    Flat track is fun, Do you ice race in winter? Do you have a winter time indoors facility? There are some parts missing on that BIKE! ;-)

    Turn LEFT!

    That makes good sense especially if you loose some fluids out of the bike, no need to be concerned about them going into the water supply.

    Exactly! just about everything that ends up on the floor of a real workshop must be prevented entering the sewer. i handle some hydraulic oils, antifreese etc.....

    The trailerball was mounted by the previous owner ( a school ) i don't know how it was used, you are not the first to notice it thou.
    I live in the north of Sweden just outside a town named Umeå, this time of year it's freesing cold -13 Celsius today and about 20 cm snow ( 8 inches )

    The bike is not a real racebike, but inspiration is a mix of dirt/flattrack. the plan was to build a rough looking, clean streetbike and use it! nothing fancy just raw attitude.
    In sweden we have a flattrack similar motorsport called Speedway, teambased competition on a small dirt ovaltrack.
    Ofcourse there are Iceracing with bikes but only on outdoor tracks.

    Very nice shop Magnus. I especially like the Sajo UF-52 milling machine.

    In the late 1970's, I worked at the U.S. Importer for Sajo.

    My father was the service manager for over 20 years. They made great machines.

    Interesting The Swedish machinetools manufacturers are not what they used to be, there were quite many of them back in the days.
    I think i have to do some research about those companies, they still exist but mostly by name.
    It's quite common to completely rebuild those old machines to "better than new" standard but they are not cheap.

    Some of my tools and machines ( Sajo mill included ) were bought at a place nearby where they recycle stuff from schools, university and hospitals etc... mostly crap but once in a while u find something good and they have no idea what its worth

    Ding! Write that on the wall somewhere... Local codes here - mebbe MOST places long-since, do not permit a floor drain in a shop or garage where fuel, lubricants, or other contaminants might enter to be connected to the conventional sewer system w/o a a costly 'device' in between, sometimes not even then.

    Sinking a NOT connected lift-out sump of the sort you used looks to go a long way towards getting SOMEPLACE for stuff that gets away from point-source control to safely drain and be collected.

    Thanks for that!

    The regulations here are also hard and expensive to meet, this way i dont have a drain but accidental leaks etc goes down in the box.
    You could easily fabricate this by yourself ( i bought mine due to lack of time and material ) and this is how it looks when not covered in concrete.

    Hejsan Magnus.

    Very nice shop! The Sajo mill looks great! I would give my left nut for a place like that, instead of my
    old 2 car garage, with no insulation, and no heat.

    SAJO's are great mills, they were made in bigger sizes than the OP's as well.
