    Kind of like the Horders tv show once it is out in the open the healing can begin!

    @Righty Tighty your photo 3,4,5 are pretty close.

    I bet there are worse ones out there but some don't have the balls to show it.

    At least I can get 2 cars in my 3 car garage (still!)

    OK, since we're doing dirty laundry today........here's the rest of the pigsty I call a shop. There have been many times the only way I can move around is to slither sideways between things to get to another location. And it's cleaner in these pics since I sold off two engines and a transmission that were adding to the floor clutter.

      Is it terrible that seeing other people’s messes makes me feel better about myself?? I mean, it just reassures me that I’m not the only one... :rofl:

      Nice Wilton, by the way! First time I’ve seen one painted white. Looks great.

          Yeah, it's one of the nicest tools I own. I found it on CL, a guy took it apart (and I think he repainted it) but didn't re-assemble it right so I got it for cheap. I had to take it back apart and sort it out to get it working. It had no handle so I made on from 5/8" stock. When cranked down, nothing is getting loose from that bad boy.

            Scientific studies have proven that no matter the size of the workbench or tool collection, you only need an 18 square inch clear surface to work in.

            I love the mix and match of what's on the bench; word working tools, is that a garden sprayer, the car working tools...where the medical stuff? maybe the outdoor cooking stuff is missing.

              I bought my first set of tools when I was 12. In 68 years I have never found a use for the 25/32 socket.

                I usually use them to round off the head of a 3/4" bolt to make sure that I'll never, ever get that fastener removed.
