Bit obvious this but a decent bench mounted vice is essential I think. The bigger the better IMO.
And that's about as far as I've got so far, the rest of the workshop is WIP ......IMG_20201025_144749.jpegIMG_20201025_144759.jpegIMG_20201025_144829.jpeg

Just sorting out a small workshop for all the saws etc. Also putting in a workbench for repairs and sharpening. 
 
Looking for ideas on storage and best setups for sharpening and benches.
 
Thanks

Done. Always like a vice to be super sturdy so mounted it on a 6"x6" length of oak which goes right to the floor and bolted this to the side of the bench. The vice can rotate so having overhang on two sides can be handy.

Don’t want to be a kill-joy but be careful what you post on here/the internet in general. There are prying eyes everywhere sadly, and pikies are all over this site and any others to do with easy-to-steal-and-sell-on machinery.

Fair point, but many on here are anonymous and my bedroom connects directly to my workshop, so I can hear if a mouse Farts in there.

Not worried about you Mick - France is probably a bit too much of a trek for the majority of dirty thieving scumbags who do their research on uk forums!

There used to be a brilliant poster on here called Dean Lofthouse who regularly put pics and vids of his setup on the forum and was then  subject to multiple break-ins. Possibly unrelated, but also possible that he’d dangled a carrot in front of the great unwashed and they had the opportunity to do their homework before ‘going shopping’.

He has now disappeared from the forum as far as I’m aware (I hope he has dropped off the radar to reduce any suspicion that any missing pikies have anything to do with him - with a bit of luck he managed to exact some form of revenge somewhere along the line!!!).

Dean got out of tree work some years ago. He is still contacted now and again and doing well in life.

As much as I would love to share a photo of my workshop, I can't as I can't get in the bloody door to take a photo because there is so much crap on the floor :(

This thought had occured to me briefly as well, but I dismissed it as paranoia. As long as you're not silly enough to divulge any personal info in your posts. As far as I know you can't get any useful information like addresses etc from users profiles or posts. Is that right, can anyone else confirm this?
