It's not all the time that a hobbyist is able to really cater his shop to the precise nature of what he is most passionate about, but due to the kindness of my wife my fan shop represents just that.
Beginning around one year ago I put the pencil to paper and drew out what I considered to be my dream shop. With this shop there would be plenty of room for lots of people working on projects, storage space for work in progress (WIP, for any other manufacturing guys reading this), adequate and efficient tool storage, a well ventilated and lit paint booth as well as a dust room to do all my blasting, polishing and grinding within. A new circuit panel was installed specifically for the work shop to ensure power was never an issue and the heart of the shop, my 5hp compressor, was hooked up.
The shop will never truly be completed and to be honest, it seems as if the shop has become just as much of a hobby to me as working on fans. Each addition to the shop is always customized and detailed to perfection so that it's function in the shop is greater than the sum of its parts. What follows are some pics of my work environment. I hope you enjoy.
