A European Workshop
Most of the workshop pictures so far have come from Australia, and one from UK. This one is from Holland, sorry Huib, the Netherlands.
Interesting differences. Huib built his own workshop, and he has some nice gear. All of these photos came upside-down. Funny how they consider Oz to be “down-under”. Obviously their reference points are wrong. THEY are the upside-down ones. I mean, we are walking upright, right? They must be upside-down!
Here finally my contribution to your workshop series, as always I might want to show and share too much with others, that’s why I want you to show what you can support and is in line with the possibilities you have on your blog.
See if you can make one blog part of it or cut it into pieces. That’s up to you. I transfer the pictures with WE TRANSFER to you, as it is right you got a mail with the link to download the pictures.
It looks like the pictures that it is all clean and tidy maybe but appearances are deceptive, most of the time it’s not so tidy for me either, for the pictures I cleaned it up.
I have tried to be as complete as possible but if there are any questions please let me know.
I built the barn myself, so as the floor plan was drawn. First I built room 1 which is completely isolated and where I can work during the winter, there are also the most expensive machines.
Later on I built room 2, to store also the wood for the stove. Finally, 5 years ago I built room 3, the largest room where also other things are stored as only hobby stuff, also our bikes and everthing els.
Room 1 is the room where I stay most in, coarse work I do room 2, such as sawing, sanding and coarse drilling. In room 3 I mainly do business that need some space, the large, homemade workbench is a good tool for that. And as you can see, I can’t throw anything away and I keep everything I think of that can be useful in the next hundred years.
The photos contain references to the machine and the space where they are located.
I hope you like the total information.
Huib also sent a video of his steam plant. Unfortunately I do not have the space to post it, but if Huib can remember the YouTube address I will include that later.
So, thank you Huib, for sharing your workplace with us. It is very interesting to see how other model engineers work, and their equipment. I have posted only a fraction of Huib’s photos, due to space limitations. I hope that the chosen shots are of interest to my readers.
ps. Huib, I found the YouTube video…Very nice work!
Why is everyones workshops always so neat and tidy I strugle to keep organised.
I’ll trade my wife for that lathe 😉
Seriously you have a really nice workshop. Filled with “to die for” equipment and not so neat that John feels bad. :-0
