Working on it

Clean clean

I got fed up of tripping over boxes of Morris Minor parts and never being able to find any clear bench space, and having a floor so dirty that I trailed footprints behind me when I went outside (only a slight exaggeration). Yesterday I resolved to do something about it. 16 hours of tidying and cleaning later, and I can see (some of) the floor and the worktops again. I also gave my big lathe and my mill a long overdue clean and oil (one of the mill slides had dried up and started to rust slightly). Then I got really carried away and vacuumed the toilet server room carpet and bleached the sink. The water that came out of the mop bucket after cleaning the floor was an interesting shade of brown-black.
