Must be so nice having a lift for working on cars. If I didnít have the boat stored yr round in the 3rd bay I might consider one.   

I hate dirty garage floors so a couple times a year especially after winter Iíll break out the hose and zipwash soap n scrub it down.   Ickys to me are salt and dirt the cars track in.

They are only nice if you can use it! I have a Bendpack car lift. It has a car on it and a car under it. And crap all over the cars so all I can see is about a sq/ft of the blue paint on the Bendpack car lift. Never been able to use the car lift for working on my car(s). Itís sad, Iíve got crapitist bad!   :41: :41: :41:

I'd be willing to come down there and clean out your garage/shop, but only if I could take home anything you either forgot about or never knew you had! Cause it obviously means you don't use it  !AOK

Sounds like the treadmill in the bedroom that my Brute swore to me she would use every day. I'm pretty sure it's still there, judging by the shape of the pile of stuff that has grown on top  of it.

I just thought ickys was a funny term, try to keep my work area clean also. Some times it is a before and after, icky free zone .


I agree, but I have the next best thing, access to one.  Friend that has some sort of vintage cars that I work on. Was kind enough to let me use it, a life saver for sure.

Here is an example of one,

I think the pic says it all. But, derogatory remarks are more than welcome!

And here I thought everybody would want the logs in the front. Thatís olive tree wood. Have you ever worked with it? For me it makes the best clock gears ever for the old wooded clock works.
Oh and Shawn, I have the 3 missing metal draws.

It's my belief that every male child born should be deeded a 50 X 100-foot warehouse to store his stuff. With the option for more.
  Don't get me wrong I love my Brute, but she does not take into account the number of times she has come to me asking if " I have a {Fill in the blank}". And my answer is "Yup Give me a minute and I'll get you one".On the other hand, God Forbid if I leave a tool or part laying around in the common area of the house It gets treated like radioactive waste and transported to my office and left on my desk unless she needs it. In which case it is far easier to by a new one and trade for mine back.
  And to sum it up when they start the "Your office is a mess" conversation don't bring up the Treadmill unless you really want a few days of "I'm not speaking to you".
  That's a "In case of fire" situation. Only if you want peace and quiet for a few days. Just make sure she goes to sleep before you.
  Just saying.

 I believe the "Brute" is his significant other.

Don't sweat getting old, you'll still do dumb crap, just slower.

yea I get that but... like SWMBO is She who must be obeyed...
I was looking for a real meaning to BRUTE... figuring I missed something when I was younger.
