These are before pictures of the Shop before I cleaned it up by myself.





These are after pictures of the Shop after I cleaned it up by myself. This took me more than an hour, and I think I made a significant difference.

Hello, I cleaned my shop!  Thanks to you.

Here you can see a shop with a couple of issues.  There are large balls rolling around on the floor.  Airhoses and vacuum tubing carefully positioned in such a way to catch every clothing.  Some stuff stacked vertically, perhaps higher than is strictly safe, especially since it contains open containers of glue, disassembled electronics, lots of sharp chisels and such, open boxes of screws... Also there are the diagonal things.  Like the canvas rolls and the wood.  Diagonal things always seem to find the floor, and invite other things along.  There's the barely visible pile of fallen stuff to the left and the clearly visible giant pile of stuff that prevents me from even getting to the chop saw, much less walking safely through the room.  



So now here's the same space.  The table now has the freedom to display some projects that you may or may not see here in the future.

Here is my submission for the Clean the Shop BB - Tool Care Aspect - sand.

To get certified for this BB, I have posted:
- a photo of the workbench before I got started - you can see the accumulated sawdust on the far side of the workbench
- an after picture that shows significant improvement and several hours of work

I swept the floor twice. Put everything out on the workbench away and used an air compressor to get all the dust off the workbench and used it to clean up around the chop saw and the circular saw.  I'm not sure I've ever gotten the concrete floor clean enough to see the oil stains and paint marks.

I also have a brief video showing the accumulation of sawdust and debris on the floor.  It is over 30MB and I am sorting out how to modify and reduce it.  Let me know if you need it.

Doing PEP does a number on the shop! Thank goodness for this BB!

I don't have what most people would call a shop. Spider hut is full of mold and... well, spiders; and the garage is just barely big enough for my car and my bikes. So, I use the patio thingy on the south side of the house as my outdoor shop.

Staff note :

I'm sorry but that doesn't appear to be a shop. One part of cleaning a shop is that the mess doesn't leave, it gets put into its proper place within the shop.
