New shop, finally!

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

First tractor rolled in, today, for front axle work. Loboy with a Wagner loader. Rain tomorrow, and cold, next 2 days, so I can play in the warm shop!

Peter, it was loud, without a hailstorm. I carpeted the floor, and that reduced the noise. When i first was setting things up, if I dropped a tool, you would hear it at your house. Might hang some carpeting on a wall, to further reduce the noise, if I find it necessary.

Looking great Ed !!!
Question: Did you anchor the beam just to the container roof or did you install reinforcing to mount it to?

Dave, it's anchored with half inch, GR8 carriage bolts, with 2 inch fender washers under the heads. 18 bolts. The beam is 3/8 inch thick, so stress is spread across the whole length, putting minimal load on each bolt.

Shipping containers are the Bomb.. I Love them, and wish I had another one, to keep my nicer tractors in.

I few years ago, I bought a 20 footer, and a year or so later, when the cash was available I got another 20 footer. I spaced them at the correct distance so that when I had the extra cash, I could by one of the Pre-Fab car ports and place in between them.
I covered the car port with tin, fit some used storm windows in the south end for light, and tied it down, to the shipping containers.

As money became available I made doors for the north end and put lighting in it. Still has a rock floor in it, and hope to put concrete in some day..
The only part I regret was that i did not do this with 40 footers, instead of the 20's.
