    Hey guys, figured I would start a thread on the shop I have been building for the last year.

    The building is almost finished now and will be tied into an existing 25x40 shop with a 10x25 welding booth in between the two.
    So far I have added a plasma table, multiple different welders, 6' cnc press brake, time saver debur machine, jd squared model 54 bender, 2 post lift and basic hand tools.

    I didn't get great pics of the erecting but here's what I have.

    Installed the plasma table. IMG_0242.JPG
    One of my employees built this suction cup lift for the fork lift! So far we have loaded a 5x10 1/2" sheets on the table without issues. Also built this table and stools that I still need to finish. IMG_0293.JPG IMG_0267.JPG
    Cut and cleaned some logs from the property for the entry to the welding room. IMG_0765.JPG

    Installed a 7x12 hood over the plasma, we use 2 large swamp coolers, reversed the motors so they are pulling air out through the pads to filter. Still need to duct them to the hood and add some lights underneath. Also got the press brake area set up with some custom aluminum handling carts and a custom cart for all the brake tooling. Also got the electric done on the back wall with a phase converter for the brake and time saver. IMG_1493.JPG IMG_1498.JPG IMG_1494.JPG

    Nice work with the hood. Do you have a water table under that plasma? Curious what brand the plasma table is as well.

    Thanks.
    Yes, there is a water table but it just wasn't cutting it for the fumes and dust.
    The table is an archlight dynamics 5x10.

    Added a cantilever pallet rack for all the plate! Also built a rack for the suction lift on top of the press brake. IMG_1631.JPG IMG_1646.JPG IMG_1647.JPG

    I believe I'm in the building about 40k.
    I did everything myself except the concrete. I had a friend do that and got a good price. I also picked up the building for cheep off Craigslist.
