I am sure that you intuitively know where you placed every tool so that retrieval is fast and efficient. It's the same for everyone but what I found interesting is when our son came to my shop for a project and without asking he was able to locate the tools that he needed. It must be DNA related.

This also explains why at my age moving to a new shop would be a disaster. The burnt in memory of where each tool or fastener resides would be lost.

Just trying to rebuild/remodel my basement into a better shop has me constantly looking for stuff that is no long in its OLD resting place.

I really have no choice if i want to have an acceptable work shop but it does scramble the brain a bit when you have to ask yourself which cabinet did i put XYZ. Then you have the really hard choices about which items to keep. Sometimes you just end up staring at the mess wondering if it makes sense to go forward.
 
Miscellaneous tooling: like boring head Kaiser & Rawyler (both are made in Switzerland) Arkograph, ....

What for is ARKOGRAPH looks quite mysterious .
What is purpose of brick behind Mercedes rear wheel ? I am just joking.
Beautiful car I have never seen this model of Mercedes . Is it customized for you?
 
Oups! sorry, the car was a mistake. But by the way it's standard cabriolet with AMG kit.
Arkograf, is a tool for the marking HSS tools for exemple. Or all kind of marking on hard metal

Last but not least, a new Maprox chuck (Swiss made)
Ultra thin and direct mounting on W20 spindle

Congratulations LeZap, a beautiful setup! I am new to the machining hobby and I have much to learn. I have never seen a spinder cross operated tailstock. Can you enlighten me please, what is its primary function and how is it used? Thanks, joe
 
This tailstock is working with W20 collets. The driving system's working with the cross crank.
It's used for save time and standardized jobs.
