I've enjoyed many of the "Show Us Your.." threads. I thought I'd start one myself. If you are using antique machine tools, I'm very keen to see what you use! I've been a tool and die machinist for 35 years and since 2009, I've put together my own shop to do my old car repairs, as well as antique phonograph and music boxes.Cheers!

Arnold, what is the file size on each of your pictures? There is a limit of 250K per picture on this old forum software. Here is a way to reduce the file size on a Windows machine:

OK time for me to chime in here, obviously Arnold is having a problem posting pictures, I have sent him a message as well.

He has the picture resizing down as his pictures are showing up here so is a problem with loading them.

First of all you should just be using the upload attachment button at the bottom of the message. You should not have to put any of the picture codes in manually.

Also if it is a button you only click a button once, not twice.

Your message comes up in preview mode before you actually post it to the thread.

It is here that you can have a look at what is happening and clean it up a bit.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Here is one of Arnold's posts as it shows up in the preview box.

\jpeg_alreadyuploaded{706902,shop3}\jpeg_alreadyuploaded{706901,}

This picture would be duplicated, so I just deleted the second part to make the post look like this -

\jpeg_alreadyuploaded{706902,shop3}

----------------------------------------------------------------------
This is another one, notice the ] a square bracket - it should be a } curly bracket

But it also shouldn't be there, probably trying to enter the codes manually.

image{shop4]\jpeg_alreadyuploaded{706918,}

----------------------------------------------------------------------
One more

\image_notuploaded{shop3}\imagelink{http://www.mtfca.com/cgi-bin/discus/board-po st.cgi?action=posting_upload_form&what=show&img=706921,shop1.JPG}

This says image not uploaded. You probably should just exit and re-enter the post.

\jpeg_alreadyuploaded{706914,a}

\jpeg_alreadyuploaded{706915,a}

\jpeg_alreadyuploaded{706916,a}


Notice I have separated all the jpeg lines with a space between. This makes sure the text is on the top and the pictures have a space between them.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

You can accomplish all this just be looking at the preview box and going back into the Revise your Message box (multiple times like I did on this one)

Fordially
Chris

Chris, my GTX is a very early production 1971 model (built in St. Louis, MO in September, 1970). I bought it from a kid in Webster Groves who had multiple Mopar projects, but needed to sell one to get money for college. It is an original two-tone paint car (one of 16 built), but it was originally dark green metallic with a light green metallic painted roof and a green interior.

Chris (the moderator), thank you for what you do here. It IS appreciated. :-)

And only some mention of lathe/mill/drill,surface grinder/hardness tester? brands and years...

Pat, the lathe on the right, not the modern import, those legs are so familiar... Please tell. Prob'ly NOT a South Bend but so similar! I do love the South Bend's from a hundred years ago and I am VERY partial. Those legs! Nah, it ain't a woman but it'll give more pleasure over the long haul than a woman will.

I see all these machines, whether on the floor or portable/drivable and I say to myself "uhh/mmm/nice" in a good way. I adore the busy places the best but the beautiful places are wonderful too!

My little shed/mess. It IS cozy tho! DAMN cozy!

Like others here, I ain't gonna show my mess in other areas. They're too busy and disjointed like my brain.

Burger,
I just about fell off my chair when I saw this photo you posted.
I have a 4-5 car garage and workshop. Attached to the workshop is the flat I lived in while I was building the house that I now live in. I have since turned 50% of the flat into an N scale, around the walls layout freelanced, but based on Western Pacific's "Feather River Route". Photo shows it while it was still under construction and reminds me I should take some more pics, now that its all done.



I want that sign.....sigh.

Jake,

Let's give some details on your 71 Cuda ...

I had a dark blue ragtop - 440 six pak, 4-speed. Got it as a stripped
hulk, sold it as a stripped hulk. Super rare car though.

The 71's were far-and-away the best looking of the E-body series with
the quad headlights and fender louvres. :-)

Still have my 66 Coronet ragtop. Black on black, white bench interior,
440 Magnum, 4-speed, 3.23 Posi, Discs. Way too much go-fast for that
car.

OT, but whoa, nice Mopars Jake, especially the 'Cuda convertible!

I used to own a 1971 Plymouth Barracuda convertible with a non-matching 318 in it. I yanked the 318 and put in a 340 six-pack with a 727 tranny and 3.55 sure-grip rear axle. I made a custom air cleaner so that I could keep the A/C with the six-pack setup.

Tim,

It is largely an unmolested body with a period drivetrain and equipment
from a totalled R/T. Original top, mostly original paint, original interior. I
did the unthinkable and put new carpet in it though, being the heathen
scum that I am. Been told by lots of purists that I am lower than low and
will burn in hell. It's all good. It's mine. I can enjoy it as I choose.

Well I think us Mopar guys tend to wise up. I am glad a thinned the heard and enjoy different things. '48 Crosley Wagon, because it is small and will fit up in my now allotted garage space. It fits in a lawn shed too.

The 71 Cuda rag was a hemi clone.
http://www.jakesgeneralstore.com/cars/sold/1971-hemi-cuda-convertible-tribute
1970 Barracuda cloned as a 71 Hemi Cuda. Motor is 1966, Rubber bumpers, shaker set up and a power top. Most everything new. Car has Hemi Billboards. Dual carbs( Carter AFB ) 8.75 Rear end 3:55. Auto Trans w/ Pistol Grip Shifter, rimblow wheels. Very fun to drive. No muscle car in the world turns more heads that a '71 Hemi Cuda Convertible.

Mine is a mess and ashamed to take a pic. I have my 70 fastback boss 302 clone, and a 82 gt mustang I bought new and now has 28 thousand hard miles on it and the 27 roadster crammed in my 2 car garage for the winter and just had a metal 36x36 put up but it's tall in the middle for our camper and has the 2 12x12 sides or lean to as my dad calls them. It will be closed in and concreted when they are done, no a.c. or heat. Rain and holidays has all of that at a halt for another week. So maybe someone will have this post going again next spring again. Right now I keep the model A s and the other T in a old race car shop 10 miles from home that I rented 15 years ago dirt cheap and just never wanted to give it up but I have started scaling back and want my stuff at home now. Still honing to race just not gonna run as fast as previous years. I want to eventually retire, and going slower is cheaper.lol By spring they will all be at my house. Tim

Pat, South Bend must've called that a 13 by 8?
Beautiful machine! And a type A (quick-change box and powered feeds) I'll guess. I wait on a little type C 8 by 36 from March of '29 to keep my older one company.
I'm quite proud to say my old South Bend 13 by 6 (four feet between centers) is the 7th from the oldest registered on a fella's South Bend site. Number 926.
Gotta watch him as everything turned is a bit tapered(ish)...
And a '28 Chevy crankshaft is completely unbendable when between centers on that old lathe. I wanted to bend it straight. Did I just really type that?
So many cool pics here.
Rob, how on Earth do you get inside that layout? Nice!

Rob,
WP eh? Well, here I am in Oroville, the start of the Feather River canyon, originally worked for the railcar shop that used the WP roundhouse site for it's shop, and spent about 5 years painting locomotives for the WP museum in Portola.
However, I dable in S gauge, mostly high-rail, N is way to small for these eyes and hands!
Still trying to decide whether or not to take any pics of my mess. . .

This is quite a long but very interesting thread but I'll extend it a little with my barn. I built mine just before Jay built his, I think it was in the 90's.



It has a concrete floor downstairs and wood on the second. Right now it has three friends cars or motors in various states of repair. Strangely enough two are both waiting for new starter ring gears as I write.





The stairs are at the back, though I have a hole and a 16 foot chain hoist to lift big heavy stuff to the upper floor



It all keeps me out of trouble.

No way am I going to post mine after seeing some of above! :-) Not because it's a mess (which it is) but because I have to go outside to change my mind it's so small.

Great photos guys! It does not matter how big or small,clean or dirty, organized or not, if you're having fun, keeping your cars running, sharing with friends and family, that's all that matters! :-)

Mark,

I can empathize with the small space problem. In some of my former
domiciles, I have had to be incredibly creative to have space for my junk.
I became a master of squeezing usable space out of attics, nooks,
and other hard-to-work-with spaces, just to pack away the floor clutter
so I could get a car IN TO the garage !

Jack,
Your "Table" looks lot like the Brunswick 9' pocket billiards table we had when I was a kid. It went to Colorado with a cousin, but I have no idea where it is now. Lots of memories playing pool on that table. 3" thick slate bed on it.

Nikki never talks back and always smiles. Some reason everyone wants their picture made with her!
