Parker Metalworking TIG/Stick
Miller plasma
Victor O/A
Harris O/A
Milwaukee portaband
Bosch and Dewalt right angle grinders (2-3 of 'em, keep a wire cup on one, cutting, flap disk, etc. on the two Dewalts)

Whatever brand of tools I end up finding deals when there is a need, and no glaring faults warning me away from.
Had a Lincoln SP135+ MIG until an acquaintance had great need for MIG, and I hadn't been using MIG in a while.

The little mill sets mostly idle since got the Cincinnati But it still gets used for the odd little job
I forgot the Makita carbide cold saw and horizontal band saw
I was building a lot of small Backhoe buckets for A while so I built the plate roller it will bend 37" of 3/16 plate around a 12" die

My shop is mostly a woodworking shop, with one part near the garage port for metalworking, usually I have it so I can roll out my metalworking stuff on the concrete infront. I got a single welder, a 23 year old Kemppi Minarc TIG 300A, DC only stick and tig combo that I retrofitted with a CK torch and homemade pedal. Before that I had a cheaper older kemppi stick welder.

I buy and use almost exclusively old quality machines, usually requiring some renovation. My oldest machine is my woodworking bandsaw which is anywhere from 60-70 years old. Future purchases would be a better drill press, preferrably something like a swedish Arboga or Strands, an older cast iron jointer/planer combo is also in the cards. But I got a small aluminum one that I am making do with.

I would someday like to expand into the smaller room in my garage, once I have built a whole new storage to put the stuff I currently store there into. Then I'd like to put a metal working lathe there perhaps. Maybe a swedish blomqvist (a metric southbend clone)

This is the welder and my welding table, it's onwheels so I can roll it outside for welding work:

I am into homemade tools as well, this simple belt grinder has been very useful, it was primary intended to sharpen chisels, but it gets used for all kinds of metal shaping, eventually I will build a bigger metal belt grinder.

I recently made a sheet metal brake, also the vise is homemade:

I forgot about mills & lathes!

Craftsman (Clausing) lathe, pops up at Sears Service Center as: "Yeah, we sold this once-upon-a-time" (part # on a blank sheet)

18" Russnok vertical (and horizontal!) mill from WWII US Navy. The base, (heavy cast iron), made by Singer Sewing Machine Co.

Unimat mini lathe & mill attach. (bought from Sears! catalog in early '70's)

Craftsman (Sherline) mini lathe.
