The new Britishfest commercial is up featuring a lot of my creations as well as a few friends such as Frank's Red Supreme Dalek named Blinky. :) Be sure to check out the Britishfest site and attend the event in Omaha Nebraska! www.Britishfest.com
Took down some old sheds that were rotting away at a different location and salvaged most of the 2x4s and one of the roofs.
The floors were toast and not worth saving.
With some help from friends we got the roof loaded onto the truck.
Slowly we drove the roof across town to the new location.
Tight Fit down this road!!!
The new floor is mostly made out of a dance floor I made for the robots for outdoor events plus one new section to make the size a full 8x12. Getting ready to roof the old roof after taking the old shingles off.
Other than being short about 6 or 7 2x4s and the new siding and door the shed is made of the two old sheds that were falling apart. Got rid of some garbage, recycled, and got a new shed out of it all for 1/4th of the cost of a new one! This shed will be strictly for the lawn and garden items.
The toolbox is a mess again, part of the problem is there are to many tools in it to stay organized and the mats in the drawers have disintegrated over the years so the tools roll everywhere.
The anti-slip mats they sell at the home improvement centers cost a lot of money so to save a few bucks and have a lighter color liner I used the kitchen drawer type instead. I cut the mats to size and cleaned every drawer and tool thoroughly. Then reorganized the tools properly and any tools that I had more than two of went in the basement workshop instead. Now everything is easy to get to and see. Now I just got to keep it clean. :)
Welcome to the new page update. Formally www.R2-CM.com, Moose's Workshop includes all the projects we make now, not just the robots. Other page updates will follow soon! So spread the word and be sure to subscribe to this page! Is there something you would like to see an update on? A topic you would like us to cover? Then be sure to comment or e-mail us about it. :)
For those of you who get to this site via www.R2-CM.com you will soon be able to use www.Moosesworkshop.com instead. As we build a lot more than just robots now it seams appropriate to build a more encompassing blog as well. So look for a new banner coming soon with the new domain name!
Cleaning up some shelving next. Took everything out and added a cleat to the back of the shelf so nothing can fall between the joists. then added some plastic bins and organised some of my bolts nuts and screws.
The bins fit so well I ended up filling the whole shelf with them.
A friend was throwing out a glass front cabinet because it was all rusty and the doors did not work so I took it home and cleaned it up. I got the doors working smooth again and put some of my game pieces for X-wing and Doctor Who RPG in it. May make another shelf out of glass for the bottom later. :)
Got tired of my hammers taking up so much room in the tool box and getting in the way so I made this hammer holder out of scraps with just a jig saw. Now I can get at them easily and they are out of the way.
My favorite part of any build. Laying out all the dimensions by hand. Just a few rulers and a calculator. No fancy CNC machines that do all the work for you from someone else's hard work. For those of you that have never done layouts the old school way you don;t know what your missing. Very relaxing, fun, and pride of doing it yourself. :)
Finally got around to making a drill holder station out of left over plywood scraps so I have a place to put the drills so they do not fall over all the time. It also has a charging station up top with drill bit storage in the center. No these are not all my drills, the other builders keep leaving their tools here. lol Tomorrow I will find a spot to hang it in the workshop. RECYCLE!!!
