Clear floor space you’re harder a contender 😂😂😂

It is only clear because I have to get the mower/barrow in and out at this time of year.  It is also quite a large space ......

Been helping with too many shed clearances  "this cant go to the tip" 

My son said if I had an aircraft hangar I would clutter it up

Now I am retired we need a smaller bungalow bigger shed

Wow!

You must be taking the lead with that entry!:)

No! You've got to be able to make something in the shed amongst the clutter, otherwise I would just put up a photo of my attic 😁

To collect the oil 😉

No leaks on this one - its only young (1993).  Previous one (made 1952) leaked a bit!  I wish I still had that one as they are very collectable now.

well - it keeps the birds out at least!!

I have just done the roof on our shed at the weekend - complete replacement and design so I can now stand on the top of it to cut the neighbours conifers - I must admit I ### up when I put it in about 15 years ago as now there isn't much space up the back because of the afore mentioned trees. But that shed is full - and our garage looks like a bomb has gone off in it most of the time although you can currently see the floor so I won't bother posting a picture although one of the pictures here gave me an idea for changing the racks around in the garage to free up a bit of space (mind you that will only get filled with junk)

This is the tidiest my garage has been in the last 30 years, but the cabinets need sorting. Spanners and sockets in almost every drawer.

Slightly off-topic, but can you tell us more about that beam-trolley-hoist arrangement?  Where did you get it from, any good?

 

I bought the 200kg rated electric hoist on eBay (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Electric-Winch-Hoist-Lifting-Engine-Pulley-Electric-Wire-Rope-Winch-100-200-kg/112394230399?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649) a couple of years ago, along with two 5 metre lengths of 1/4 inch aluminium channel, which I screwed back to back to form an i-beam and screwed it to the shed rafters to form a trackway from the bike centre to the bench, over the vice. The hoist is hung from the beam on 4 nylon rollers. With this, I can easily lift the engine out of the bike and push it along the beam to the bench and lower it on to the vice. In reverse it makes fitting the engine back into the frame a doddle as I can lower it fractionally until it all lines up.

Ok thanks, roll your own!

Might have to go a bit more heavy duty for my intended use - Land Rover engines have a bit more gravity to them than bike engines....

I couldn't fit anything bigger in my bijou workshop. It does the job.

There are similar 500 and 1000 kg hoists on eBay

Bijou, yep certainly got one of those too.  Though if Paddington Bear was to give it a suitably hard stare, it would probably fall over.  This is why I'm not posting a picture of my shed, the junk in it is structural.
