In any good workshop or garage if your going to do any kinda of auto repair or tuning then a car hoist is a must. Otherwise you’ll be crawling under the car with your back always on the floor and trust me it doesn’t get easier with age.
My workshop will of course have a car hoist and one design that I particularly like is the 2 post car lift just like the one in the image below.
You can also Click Here for the PDF version of a brochure. It has two arms on each side that lifts the car by its natural life points and leaves lots of room to work on the engine and front suspension where most of the work is usually done. This hoist is available from Best Buy Automotive Equipment at the price of $1495 which is not a bad price but time will tell more research on this subject.
Below is a picture of my first hand drawn garage plans that I did up months ago and forgot all about them. Well I recently found them, scanned them and decided to post them up on this blog to share them with people.
There were a few things that I missed when drawing these plans which I will add in my next plans.
- Central Vacuum System
- Tool Racks
- and more…
I found this great Mini Sandblasting gun made by Badger that would be a great hobby tool for cleaning up smaller things like metal RC Car parts, smaller automobile parts and anything else that’s small. Using a full size sandblasting station is great for larger things but when you need precision this little guy would do great for smaller more delicate pieces.
This would be a great tool for refinishing some lightly rusted or corroded RC parts I got. You can look up more info directly at Badgers website. Click Here for the link.

Finding great sites is sometimes hard so check these out and let me know if you know any other sites that are great for electronics or robotics.
It’s a sad day today as it’s an end to an era as my big blue crayfish SuperTank died today. I got him 1 year ago on August 6th, 2008. He was a lighter color of blue when I got him and over the past year he has gotten darker and darker. He was also the most active crayfish out of all the ones that I had and was always climbing my plants to entertain himself.
Here is the last picture of SuperTank, RIP Big Blue.
