Pictures from my Shop

This post is inspired by technibble‘s latest posting, A Peek At Other Computer Technicians Workbenches #2 which is a followup from the original Computer Technicians workbenches posting from earlier in this year. Its great to see other professionals work spaces. I love to get inspired with new ideas. Some of the benches are small and simple. Some are busy shops with long benches. Every shop is unique and I think everyone will agree my shop is no different in that way. The common price for a retail location is 1000 a month. It is rare to find a place for any less. My shop is unusually small and is nearly 1 third that common price. Im on a busy road and my sign is 6 feet wide and and the window is 5 x 5 feet. I wanted to have plants but I also wanted interesting plants. So i purchased dwarf hybrid citrus fruit trees. On the left is a honey Tangerine tree and on the right is a limequat tree. The honey Tangerine hasnt produced mature fruit for me yet. However the Limequat has 4 large limes almost ready. When the trees get allot of sun in the summer and are happiest they bloom many flowers and the shop smells great. To the left is my attempt at a customer station. The theory is that when i finish a system they can test it and play with it before leaving. Im not sure if its a good idea. So far none of my customers have cared to try it out.  I may use the space for something else. I have a keyboard mouse and 17inch monitor. To the right is my Ebay shipments for the day. I use the USPS and priority mail. Half of my sales go international. I will ship anywhere and few ebay sellers will do that. I havent had any problems selling internationally. This mess is actually  well organized. Its where i keep my packing material for my ebay shipments . I rarely purchase any kind of packing  material. I keep what i get when i order parts. My shop is not being invaded by vermin . Those rodents are actually my pets. They are my shop mice. They live in a 10 Gallon  fish tank and are a gift from a reptile shop that closed down. The owner kept these mice  to feed snakes. Now the mice keep me company when im working. To be continued…
