"GOOD JUNK"
Ahh! Like music to a man with delusions of the future!
And if you save everything that's what your garage or shop can become "delusions". :)

Ok, an update on the enclosure. I have it just about finished but there are quite a few things I still want/need to do yet.

- upper lighting

-cutting doors into the clear side walls for those longer jobs that I may have someday

- possible upper venting if need be

- Sealing for coolant

- Tool/wrench holders and such

I added an E-Stop to the left rear which is real close to my lathe. It'll be within arms reach just in case I hear anything "crunchy" going on in there lol!

I'm loving the full open front as I need to be able to "get around" in there for various things.

I also moved the spindle to the right rear which is a nice feature and moved the air pump for the nozzle into the cabinet below.

The gas lifts for the door are perfect and I have Mcmaster to thank for that as their directions for figuring what you need are excellent.

Here are a few pics for you:

Certainly does look good.

A damn sight better than that old enclosure which I threw out. ;D

Just an update for you. I rigged up the lighting and a hinged shuttle/pendant holder as well-
