No that was never my intention. In an earlier post I said I wanted to put machinery in the back house but the products out there are belt driven machinery. I can’t put a belt shaft above the machinery because it will interfere with the crane.

Been looking at photos. For the most part, work benches and part bins were made at window level. I am thinking they didn’t want to block the light so I started making my own benches out of styrene. The one on the right came from a kit.
