Thumbs up Time to gain and share "my Little" Knowledge

I have a passion for design, and I love making things work. My real goal is to fabricate motorcycles from the frame up, and with most people buying machines is impossible and also my back garden/shed is tiny 5m square. hopefully by the time everything is completed and I am able to start building my motorcycle it will be similar to a James Bond's bad guy layer.

My first machine is a hydraulic washing line to lift it up into the ceiling of the shed. 2 attempts b4 it worked.

All benches, machines "shrinkers, bead rollers etc" will hydraulically come out of the floor. I am in the process of changing my standard welding bench to something similar to a Build Pro type of bench top.
The machines will below the welding tops.

So all help will be greatly appreciated, silly questions will be asked, but knowledge is intoxicating, and with time comes skill..

CJ,

I'd spend less time arranging your tools and more time building the bikes of your dreams. Lots of people squander what time they have on "setting up".

Underground storage might invite terrible moisture issues, too.

Can you post more information on your concept for storing machines in your small space? My problem also is space, this is preventing me from purchasing some of the items I desire.
