    Looks like you have a nice place in the country, with more room. Congrats!
    Lathe came with chips and all, good deal! It looks solid and Im sure will compliment your existing machines and shop well.

    Yep, got 'shop' envy

    I too have just moved into a new home, leaving my shed behind, as the 'Missus' wanted to be closer to family & friends. Now I have no room for a workshop (shed), but with a bit of 'rat cunning' I might be able to squeeze some space outa the 2 1/2 car garage that was built into the new home.

    Like your conversion of the Cummins Diesel, here in Australia that kinda conversion is but a dream, if only because importing a F Series or Dodge, Chevy et-al is cost prohibative. I should know I've done some research.

I built a small running 2-cycle engine through my junior and senior years of high school in shop class. all on a Bridgeport, and Rockwell just like yours. I almost took my pinkie off running that lathe! it was a good experience that taught me right quick the amount of respect all these machines deserve! LOL. Enjoy your shop its pretty sweet!
    Thanks I still have not got the rockwell going yet still have not found the proper wiring diagram for the electric motor. needing to know the capacitors to put in it.

    The celing did not make any sound difference however it did make it alot cooler to work in. Since then I have bought a newer bigger house and now needing a bigger shop to put my machines in.

    yea I love that truck but I am building a 1000hp motor for it now though.

    My poor craftsman air compressor took a **** and i decided to break down and buy a real compressor. Also i got a aqua parts washer and i have used it once and I freaking love it.
    I managed to get one piece of tin up on the walls to see how it would look. Now I have to change the color and get polar white this is too dark.

    Also picked up a forklift. So when I need to move dead trucks in and out of my shop I can do it by myself.

    i sold one of my lathes to purchase a Bridgeport J mill. The previous owner had for 22 years
    with power feed table. Also I couldn't resist playing with it on a cummins cylinder head(milled the intake shelf off) before that i picked up a new Tig welder and made some use of it and my old lathe.
