    Thanks guys. I am glad finally doing it.

    Will pick up the lease today, will move in the last week of the month. Making arrangements to move heavy equipment from the warehouse to the new shop. 840sf is not a lot, but almost twice what I have now so the space feels spacious. I am likely to put all my grinder on pedestals, minimize work bench space. Real estate where I am is pretty expensive, buy or lease, so it's always a delicate balance between space and overhead cost.

    I like that I will have my own gas hook-up, so I don't need to deal with propane, and a powerful exhaust is in already (forge fumes), so all that I need to do is to change electrical panel, place receptacles where the equipment will be, put in dust collection for metal and wood, move equipment and I am ready to go.

    Signed the lease, will start moving equipment next week, For now, just new equipment, and at the end of the month, equipment from my current shop. Trying to get all the bespoken orders before moving, as it might be some down time on another end , though unlikely more than a week.

    My old milling machine (pink colored) finally reached her retirement age - been working since 1943! Still going strong, but starts showing her age.

    The machine above is in a very good condition. Look forward to put her through the paces.

    Folks,

    moving to a new shop this week, getting some work out, but some will have to wait till I move and set up. I probably will have a down time of 3-4 days. Setting up dust extraction in a new shop, that's where most delay comes from.

    Thanks for your patience and understanding.

    Marko
