I have set up a small 'metal bashing' workshop in one half of the farm shed located at the rear of the property. 
To assist with 'homebrew' projects I have a small lathe, guillotine, bender, angle notcher, drill press, bench grinder, sander & bench vice.  It has taken quite a few years to accumulate these tools but they help greatly to give my home made gear a bit more of a professional touch.
