Big - I always enjoy following others garage projects and anticipating updates too. Just wanted to give back a bit.

Bentley - haven't had time to do the mechanical restoration of &quot;your&quot; Air Meter with all of the STUFF going on. Should be able to get to it this winter with a warm garage now! Lori's truck is a blast. Get more people stopping me than ANY muscle car I've ever had!!!! [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/shocked.gif[/img] [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/biggthumpup.gif[/img]

John forwarded some shots of his cabinets (3) and they look great. If you are looking for this kind of thing, give John a jingle.

Slow going, but progress is progress. I attached my shelves low on the wall for practical reasons to maximize stacking of containers as storage is at a premium. Visually, I don't particularly care for this as it closes the garage in a bit (and minimizes wall space for all the cool memorabilia I have collected/inherited over the years). I had an outfit custom make (reasonable) the HD wire mesh as I liked the strength, minimizes shadows, and the industrial look. I thought they would be more rigid but this type of mesh is suited to industrial shelving with metal frames. In my setup they flex too much so I had to use an anchoring system (1/8&quot; x 1&quot; flat stock) to hold the mesh firmly to the braces. Seems to work. Braces are rated to 500lbs (H. Depot) and should now allow me to put a fairly heavy load up there if needed. Shelving will wrap around 2.5 walls.

BIG,

Have been using my &quot;new&quot; DP and I love it. Nicely (over) engineered! I have dated it back to the late 40's. The vise is a 604. You must really like it cause you mentioned it at the beginning of the thread too!! (yeah, I know that was ages ago [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/dunno.gif[/img]!!) [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/grin.gif[/img]
