One of my first realizations when I decided to become a proficient wrencher was that I needed to have a decent set of tools, and a good place to work on my vehicles. Problem is, I was in a tiny garage, and had a limited set of tools and a limited amount of funds to change things. This affected me in two ways:
- It made me really focus on what tools I bought and kept. e.g., I learned to spend money on the right tools, the first time.
- It made me understand the importance of a clean workshop and cleaning up after a job, or workspace management. (bonus: I started to apply some of this logic at work, with results!)
With all this in my head, I decided that I would dedicate a portion of this blog to the often ignored side of being a good mechanic, learning to keep and maintain a proper garage.
I’m gonna talk about storage, space utility, tools, workspaces, and all number of other catchy workshop-space trendy sounding phrases that you could imagine. It’ll be dope.
