Uh huh, uh huh. Uh huh and yep! All of the above. Can't move around in mine. I installed a second 10' bench over winter to queue projects awaiting parts and now it's full too.  I literally have a 2'x2' area that I work in. It's ridiculous.

Oh yes those are very high quality fans. That one is probably a ball bearing motor fan. A new set of sealed bearings and it's good for another 50 years!

Yep and I just installed a 2' x 8' Island Countertop that came out of my landlord's house he was remodeling into my basement and am using that for my workbench, the only difference between mine and your Workshop Tom is that I also have old Radios and Record Players on my bench as well besides fans. :hammer: :D

OK, well I'm sorry to hear that George, even though Vacuums are Fan Related items. And yes vacuums do suck, but in a good way, especially the older ones! The new ones not so much, they suck in a bad way.

tell me about it George, but its fun none the less, but the only thing is that I've been into antique and vintage fans, antique and vintage radios and record players and TVs etc. since I was in 6th Grade and I still don't have a collection nearly as big as some of you guys on here have, my antique and vintage watch collection is the biggest collection I have currently with nearly 30 watches of various time periods and also my Record collection is pretty big as well with nearly 300 Record Albums, in speeds such as 33s 45s and 78s.

Lol!  I need to move more of them to the finished rooms. I did do that with the ivory stamped steel job from the picture. It was probably a kids play toy for a while as the blades were finger painted under the ivory. No joke. I moved it to the office as I got tired of explaining how a centrifugal start works..  love this quiet Westinghouse!

I had to laugh, last night I got a UPS package and I took it into the shop and couldn't find a single flat surface to sit it on to open it. Fans, tools, parts filling every horizontal surface. 


Time to clean up and also part with some fans.

.....and we wonder why we're sometimes referred to as "fan junkies".  An organized shop is the sign of a sick mind...I mean, how could I guy ever have any fun in a fan surgical center? :D

I always remember what my old machine shop teacher said  if you don't have chips on the floor and parts cluttering the isle you aren't doing anything!
