Reorganizing the Shop| JIMBO'S GARAGE

  • Published on May 17, 2018
  • I am finally getting around to making some changes to the shop that I have been wanting to make for quite some time. Shop organization is a huge thing to me, I've always been that way and I do not like when things are out of place. People ask me all the time "how do you keep your shop so organized?"
    Subscribe to Jimbos Garage:
    Part of keeping it organized is making sure that when you add new stuff to the shop that you have places to put thing and they don't end up just getting stacked in a corner. It is also important to take the time to make sure that you put things back after each project so that you always have clean work space and know where everything is. There is nothing more frustrating than needing a tool and not being able to find it.

    Jimbo! Third time I've watched this video. I hate the idea of a bigger shop personally lol! It really inspires me to see you come up with creative ways to utilize your space. It's cool to see you solve the "problem". Awesome job, great work. Keep building as you go. 👍

    Good video. Do you have a niche function for each of your multi-function welders? Do you advise a 3 in one welder vs. dedicated TIG, MIG, SMAW welders? Thank you for the instructional videos.

      JIMBO'S GARAGE  10 months ago

      Thanks for watching Jose, Yes mine are all set up to do different processes. But if you are just starting out a multi process machine might be best! Jimbo!

    "Very rarely I get help" I'd be willing to bet most of us fabricators/hobbyists all feel that statement in one way or another. I really have to beg people for abit of help......

    Wow lots of everlast welders. I have a couple too. Power tig 250 ex and a power arc 300. How do you like them?

      JIMBO'S GARAGE  Year ago

      Thanks for watching Adam, They are all fine, My power arc 300 runs about 15 amps hotter than it should. If you set it at 120 amps it really runs at about 135-140, Not a smooth arc at all. Jimbo!

      JIMBO'S GARAGE I'm just getting back into welding ( last time was highschool) I purchased a used Craftsman 35-230 stick welder (from the 80's) and a used Lincoln Electric MIG handy pack (used) recently to learn on just waiting on sub-panel to be installed

      JIMBO'S GARAGE  Year ago

      Thanks for watching Gary and Judy, Yes i do have a lot of machines, My go to is the Htp Pro Pulse 200, It has a lot of capabilities with Mig welding. If you are a stick welder, The Htp inverarc 200 is by far the best, It is a small machine but packs a big punch! And a very smooth arc! Jimbo!

    I love your videos. But, you made a big mistake. Throwing your wood out you haven't used for 10 years. The day you throw out your stuff, you need the next day!! Lol. At least that's what happens to me all the time.

    Good job Jimbo, and yes you are running low on space, but being compact but organize is very nice shop to. I just built a new home with a larger attached shop and YES moving and resetting up is a lot of work. Just think of the cool videos you could make thought doing that, HA! HA! Have a great day!!

    if you need a new home any of those dozen welders, I would be happy to adopt any of them! Also, if you need a new shop or an expansion designed, that's what I do! Let me know if I can help out. Cheers.

I have a lot of bins full of scraps on the side of the house for years BUT I"LL USE them one day haha. Good job by the way...I'm learning how to weld and you're an inspiration to me.
