    My thoughts exactly. It looks like he never does any work there.

    And no, I am NOT showing any pics of MY workspace. You get the idea.

    This is more realistic, but I'm still envious of your neatness.

    … it's dead... hell, until last October, I hadn't had a hard land line in years... I'm just too lazy to get rid of it.

    Pretty much the norm, every tool is put away every night and the counters get a wipe down...unless I'm in the middle of something big, then I just put away the tools and leave the parts I'm working with. Still working on the Kaizen foam for the big drawers, almost done.

    Fellow forumites, I'll need some help. After the Valium kicks in, I still think it's gonna take more than a two hand grip to get that stick out. On THREE.

    I use a simple formula to determine when it’s time to clean.

    When X > Y

    X= the time I just spent trying to find the (wrench, nut, part, etc.) buried under the mess

    Y= the time it would take to clean the place up

    Work clean. Good mechanics and good chefs both follow that rule. And set up their work spaces to make it easy to follow that rule.

    And there ya have it. I never need to search for a tool, I'm either using it or it's where it should be. The tools that are used the most frequently are the closest. I had a boss years ago that is respected far and wide as both a mechanic and a fitter. Complete and utter mess within 5 mins of working in the shop. Every week I'd go through the pile on his bench and find what was mine then dump everything in a box for him to sort through later. Great guy but he was mess...no system or organization for any part of the shop. Still made us use Walking Bird hand written work tags when the rest of the planet was using some sort of POS system. Would consistently over-stuff the work tag board. Never ever did an inventory. Not once. Because he had no POS system in place he'd try to keep track of special orders in his head. People would call: "Is my XYZ in?" I'd have no idea unless **** was there and I could ask him. Majority of the time he'd go "Oh ****...I forgot to order that...". The main reason I left that shop was the lack of cleanliness/organization. He probably lost 5-6 of the best employees he ever had because of it.

    Any interest in which tools I use? What's in the drawers at the shop and what's in the new box?
