Finally about 95% of the way there for my new man cave, just need to get my booth moved in, and get a chair, and I will be pretty much good to go. I will let the pictures do the talking....

Great setup.

Off topic question: How accurate have you found the Dremel Rotary Tool Work Station? I was thinking about getting one.

Don't expect perfectly zeroed holes, as it has play in it horizontally. It is a far site better than the older version of the dremel press though. But if you don't mind a bit of trade off in 100% accuracy it is worth the money (to me at least) and the foot print is small. And if you are careful with your setup, and clamp things firmly, it is good.

Quarlane, thanks :)

Hey Sub, I like those red cabinets and your main tool chest. Any chance you got these from a readily available store/commercial site?

Love the cave, i am envious as mine is still just 1/3 of my bedrood as my 3 kids are taking up the only other rooms available for a good mancave.. Maybe i should invest in a bunkbed and have then condense down into two room! LOL

Thanks Talen ;) Hook the black cabinet is a built by me deal. But the red ones are from Ikea, Helmer Drawer units.

I really like the Work Station. Having their top of the line corded rotary tool helps I find. I notice the battery powered tool gets wobbly shortly after the battery is no longer fully charged. I use it more as a hands free sanding/polishing station.

If you have room for a proper full size drill press you may be better off with that. A good one will run you $150…

I have the battery pistol-grip style dremel and use it a little.

A workstation and second, corded dremel would run me about $110 from Amazon here in the US, but maybe a bench mount drill press is a better option.

_MG_7474.jpg

I moved the lights also and that was not an easy feat, i almost snapped one in half in frustration

everything is nice and neat and i have a shed load of storage yet to fill :)

This was an expensive investment over €400 but i had it slated to do it this year so i dont mind.
Now all i have to do is remember where i put stuff :)
