Setting up shop.

I am in the process of setting up shop.
Street facing part might be small, but have a full warehouse behind it.

As for key machines that I have.
HPC Blitz
Silca Bravo II
unknown manual machine
Mul-T-Lock Gama Manual Machine

Have many pin kits and blanks as well.

Re: Setting up shop.

Very nice! Is this to be a full time gig or part time? And where is the new shop, maybe we can generate some word of mouth free advertising for you. Anyway, good luck with this endeavor!

Re: Setting up shop.

Now that your setting up shop, I'd like to know how your setting up your workbench.

I would like to have an overhead light, magnetic bar for holding common tools, a pin kit in front of me, maybe some type of carpeting so pieces don't go flying off.

Please let us know how your setting up your work bench.

CLH!

Re: Setting up shop.

I will be posting pics very soon as to how things are going.
Workbenchs are 16" deep for most, due to the space limits.
Using both pegboard and slatboard.
Replacing some electrical work that was badly done in the first place.
Still need to paint the place, but that can wait for now.

Re: Setting up shop.

Here is two pics of the first bench and pegboard going up with some keys.
Also working on some of the electrical.

When done, I will have 21 feet of pegboard installed, will need lots more hooks, but will be picking them up soon from a supplier.
On one note, a 6" hook will hold a full box of blanks, so 50 keys in all.

Sorry to hear about the hassles with the landlord. But you can store that Mail-T-Lock machine at my place for as long as you like. I’ll even pay shipping to me. ;) :P

Re: Setting up shop.

All my work tools will be coming back to my house. have a double garage. Though its not the best to work out of.
What is real nasty is the landlord is only giving me 5 days to move. not enough time. but I will work something out.

My largest items I have to move are my pallet racking and my forklift. Most things can be strapped to pallets and moved fast.
