Default Re: How comfortable is your 'shop' ?

"Too many tools"
I never thought it possible but when my father-in-law passed away last October everything in his garage and work shops came to me. The problem? This apparent windfall simply duplicated everthing I already own. And I mean everything. I have nowhere to put the extras and as yet they still reside in the In-law's garage and shop.

I can't even think of getting rid of his stuff but I have no use or room for it. Bench grinders, welders, socket sets, SAE and metric. Sanders, drills, power saws, a wall full of screwdrivers, three roll-away tool boxes, full, etc, etc. I would consider making his garage and shops mine but the fact is my mother-in-law's place is forty miles from my house. Too far to commute whenever I want to work on something.

So many tools, so little space. Sad.
