It's all relative, and no, I really don't. :lol: Looking at a pair of relatively clean round ram BPs with J head, a couple serial numbers apart that appear to have come out of the same shop. Shop is a 1.5-2 car garage (called a 2 car, but only if they are small cars) with a 1 car sized extension built off the back. Space is pretty tight as it is before I add a mill.

Note to self: start reading sig lines. They're actually quite amusing. :D

For the most part, that's only where other people's money is concerned.

You'd be amazed what you can stuff in a garage with the right planning..

I want commenting on his budget limits, but on his definition of "huge". The biggest mill I've ever personally seen was a gantry mill that was big enough to park a dump truck on. I regularly run a Hurcos with a table of 3 x7 feet, and a max table load of 5000 lbs.
HTRN, I would tell you that you are an evil fucker, but you probably get that a lot ~ Netpackrat

My gunsmith/machinist friend has a 1 car garage with a 12x36 lathe, south bend lathe, bridgeport mill, some big horizontal mill, surface grinder, drill press, welder, blast cabinet, tractor project, shaper, and I think part of a disassembled Model T. :shock:

I went from an oversize 1 car garage to the current shop, which was a big improvement but not as much as you might think since the previous garage had a high ceiling with a storage loft. I really miss being able to put stuff up on the loft. Plus everything went into the garage with no planning over the course of a long weekend when we moved, and it has taken forever to get semi organized. The real improvement is being able to use it as a garage and still keep a project vehicle inside the extended area. I would add another extension, except the back yard slopes away steeply.
