Great Workshop speedomania. Amazing collection of tools - especially the Electric Welding machine, compressor ...

Any handyman would drool over your Workshop.

A few additions and a big change!
Additions:
- Cut off tool for tubing cutting.
- pipe bender.
- angle measurer and a few other it bits, like a vernier caliper, preciser feeler gauges, etc.

Major Change:
well needed space it was a pain taking the kart out every time so decided to hang it from the ceiling!!
well bought a winch, wire rope, pulleys, chain, clamps, etc.
took a day for the guy to fix it all up! as i had to break into the plaster of the walls to reach the structural beams in the ceiling to hang the pulleys.

The winch was mounted on the wall using expansion fasteners or bolts.

The chain attached to four mounting points on the kart and were bolted together at different locations to check for CG once a suitable spot was found, it was raised to the ceiling using the wire rope and clamps, safely securing the wire and chains all together.

Then as a safety measure, i had drilled 4 expansion bolts with hook ends in four corners, i used these to hook up chains to the four corners of the kart as a safety measure.

Will post pics when I get home in the evening, was tooo tired after the whole day and cleaning up last night

P.S. Something big is coming......
I'll keep it a surprise till I have substantial progress on it. don't wprry will document it all to share with you guys!

Speed, mind telling us what you intend putting it to use for?
Private or semi-commercial? Can T-BHPians drop in for small jobs?

Hmm, i now envy you a lot, i hoped for such a garage too but then there are other things i need to do before i can set one up. Congratulations mate, one day i hope to have a garage like yours, though i have all the basic tools i will need to only the power ones to my collection and find a suitable place like yours to set it up.

DIY slogging makes it all worth the money and effort i just know the feeling, will post the pictures of my tiny winy tool set later.

Once again a Hearty congratulations, though i envy now, this is a great inspiration for an aspirant like me.

@ kutlee: bought a pipe bender the manual wheel.
@ anupmathur: T-BHP is more than welcome! anytime.
Private/personal use only, as of now, would love to make a career of it!
@ rider60: lol! mann ive learnt from my dad, if you want something really bad, theres always a way to get it and i saw that with him when he was setting up aerosports village/ microlight flyers club, in Sona, haryana and used to go there every morning 5 am and then to work at 10 am and then back to sona at 5pm and finaly back home at night, he did this everyday for 2 months and then due to political crap it got demolished just after being inaugrated by Rajiv Gandhi! this was long back, but really taught me that if you want to follow your passion just go for it don't think too much about it! sorry for going OT here.

Besta luck with your workshop whenever you get started with it, Id suggest start and pace it out won't be as much work or money upfront!
