That workshop looks an awful lot like a kitchen... perhaps you just cook in your garage now and mod in the kitchen?

VERY nice stuff there FannBlade! I have a machinists tool box set just like yours, well mine may be just a wee bit older than yours.

I like your lathe/drill press combo choice, what a steal of a price eh? The shear/bender is sweet too! What thickness of material can you cut up to? The ones I ran would cut 1/4" 4x8 steel sheets, the floor would bounce! Yours being an arm-strong type, I was just curious what the max is. I'm sure it will be an awesome and and highly used machine. Now you just need a good TIG and/or spot welder and you're golden. I just wish you lived in my neighborhood!

Actually all those cabinets came out of the house when I bought it. Wife thought I was doing the kitchen for her heck I just wanted the cabinets for my newly built garage.

Unfortunately it is rated for 22quage. I wish it would do 18 but like you said it's hand powered. The only thing I don't like is when turning the crank everything works rollers,shear and bender. Makes it hard to turn.
Actually I was looking at spot welders yesterday. I also have a TIG but it doesn't have high frequency and will only go down to 50 amp. So it just blows holes in sheet metal.
!/4" shear must have some power!

Re using old kitchen cabinets and counters in a workshop, garage, etc. is an excellent idea. I've seen it done numerous time. When my parents remodeled their kitchen many years ago one of the conditions my mom had was they find a good use for as much of the old cabinetry a they could. She didn't want it to go to waste since it was still functional (at least most of it was). Took longer getting the old stuff out, but it was worth it.

Update:
Day one took me 5hrs to cut and make 4 tack welds on the frame. Actually 4.5 hrs spent staring a it working on scale. Yes ! 1" tubing is over kill but scale is good I sure hope it can hold the fiberglass body. I originally planed on making it 48" and just build trailer on top of it, but as you can see here it is 30" X 5".

Day 2 first thing to do cut frame apart and cut it down to 28" x 4". Here you can see I have trimmed the body. Looks like I will need to cut sleeper section down another 1" to maintain scale. You will need to use your imagination here as I'm trying to judge scale so I can order more aluminum. The front and rear "tire" will be close to the final size.
Exhaust will be 5/8" polished aluminum tubing (1/2" square shown here)

I think 5" x 1 1/2"aluminum tubing looks about right for the tanks I will machine solid caps on the ends.
