This is a view that has not been seen in these pages before. The new shelf is above the bending brake with the 3 green patches on the edge. As you can see, it is already full of tools and supplies. THe area beneath the new shelf now holds the bending brake. Behind that is the storage spot for the drill packs and spare batteries for the drill and the circular saw. To the right of the brake is a ring of welding rod that holds the container for more rods and aluminum flat stock. Next is the hanger for the heat gun on another bookcase that holds heatshrink, Power Pole connectors etc. Below that are files, rasps etc.Under that is more storage, mainly for stuff I don't know what to do with right now. 

               A new tool has been added to the workshop. As I age I find it harder and harder to make use of a tool that I use very often, a nibbling tool. The hand operated nibbler that I already have just took more effort than one hand could provide. I have now upgraded to a power nibbling tool operated by a corded electric drill. I have mounted the entire assemblage on a board so everything will stay aligned and I have tested it. It works very well except that it lacks a table on which to feed the work throught the nibbler head kind of like a router table. My son has volunteered to assist in building such a table when he comes to visit next month so that will add to the usefulness of the new tool. It certainly makes short work of cutting aluminum sheet or angle. Pictures to follow when we get it completed.
