Default Re: Topcat's Dream Service Bench Reborn!

Just a bump to let anyone that gives a hoot I'm still plugging away at this....



I used to tease old geezer techs that used these.....but I won't anymore, as my aging eyes have come to appreciate it these days! It's a Luxo circa 1960's, all metal with a glass lens. They're around, but most of the knotheads on ebay think they're worth $100 + ridiculous shipping....I found this at a local junk shop for $19. Base was missing, but it was easy to fabricate. Anyone can get the cheap plastic ones......but I'll pass.







If anyone remembers the CM2220 from earlier....well I found a CM2250 on ebay for $10, not working.....



I figured I'd take my broken CM2220 and this one and make one working unit.... Well, the fix for this one was simple....so I've still got a broken but intact CM2220. This one came with all the adapters, cables, and the colorometer as well....I'll have to tinker with that feature.



The other CM2220 that I found along the way. Even today, I find these quite useful. Great for dialing in & burning in modern stuff.



THis is the next to go, big tool box full of mechanics tools.....I've been making a spot for it out in the garage..... I'll fill in the space it consumes with something else I'm pondering...



That's all for now......

Sometimes I wish I had a "mini me"...or two.....but I'm not easily entertained, so I don't watch TV or sit around and do nothing....I always find constructive things to do....albeit some might argue what I consider to be 'constructive'....

....but for what it's worth....

Center island roll-around table. I built 2 of these tables 15 years ago (cut a 4x8 sheet of 3/4" plywood in half to make the tops, the rest is pretty self explanatory). I've used it in this room on occasion as needed, but most the time it was used in the garage. I modified the outer edges with some 1x6 I cut down to create a 'track' to lay carpet in, so I can use it in this room.....but if I need it out in the garage for something gunky, the carpet will lift right out....but at this time, its going to be more useful in this room.





...and the toolbox moved out to the garage... I have an idea of what will occupy this space....I just have to build it.
