    Any photo's of the things you've created?
    A picture is worth weeks of head scratching trying to figure out how to make something.
    (I suppose I should take my own advise...later)

    I have a fairly complete machining (lathe, mill, saw, grinders etc.) and welding (tig, mig and gas) facility so I can pretty much make whatever I want.
    I don't have any woodworking equipment but I can do some wooden stuff with what I have.

    When I saw your thread titled: "Table Saw in the Darkroom", I pictured some form of new sport similar to "Extreme Ironing" (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extreme_ironing ), with photographers using table saws in their darkroom with the lights out. Shucks, that sounded exciting.

    However, to answer your question, what I have always wanted to build is a phone-booth sized darkroom out in my garage, big enough only for use in loading and unloading film. Like a lot of people, I have to double-duty one of my bathrooms when I want to do any printing and the setup and teardown time is too extensive when all I want to do is load film into a jobo reel. During one occasion when I was taking photo classes we had a tiny darkroom for just that purpose. It was about the size of a phone booth and had a regular closet door with light seals to keep out the light. It didn't need ventilation, since you only needed to be sealed up for a few minutes and it worked great. Since then, I've always wanted to build one out in my garage. I currently use a changing tent, but that isn't nearly as handy as just being able to step in and close the door.

    Reinhold, I'm impressed. I have a radial arm saw right outside the darkroom (opposite side from the door) that I've used to make a plexi tank or 2, and a rack and such, and to build the darkroom itself, but your list and range of stuff is in another class.

    While I have a table saw, I have only used it for cutting 4" lensboards. I have a metal lathe (4' bed, 11" swing) with a milling attachment that I use a lot more for making camera parts. The last thing I made on it was a small brass pin to replace a broken hinge pin on an Agfa Isolette.
