JP Lace Master replied to KOOL DOG HOOCH's discussion What does your workshop look like?
"clean is not an option as I am quite exposed to the elements and my neatness is reserved for storage only, my work area is entirely covered in dirt and stones, there is no neatness there, I have lost many a 1mm machine head screw beneath my feet."
