A Tour of Christian Aufreiter's Shop
As a very young boy, when I couldn't even stand without help, my favorite occupation already was drilling. Actually my dad drilled and I put my hands on the drill. Then I started nailing and building this and that. Soon I wanted my own tools.
I have enjoyed many shop tours and got a couple of helpful ideas by seeing pictures of your shops. Now it's time that I contribute some pictures of my own shop. It's a small room—540 x 210 cm (≈ 7' x 18', if my calculator is right, Ed.), which I share with a lot of other stuff.
The main work center in my shop is my Sjöbergs workbench (modified height) pictured with my Festool random orbit sander.
Most of my power tools. You'll certainly notice that I'm a Festool fan!
A project which I'll never finish—my shop made toolbox.
Interior details of the toolbox.
Pictures of the shop.
One of my favorite tools—Festool plunge saw.
These are the tools I used before I bought the Festool stuff. It's basically a AEG hammer drill with a circular saw, angle grinder, and orbital sander attachments.
My granddad bought them about 30 years ago. My dad used the drill quite a lot when our house was built.
A really sharp and accurate saw - Ulmia miter saw with Japanese blade.
This is me making dust.
Here I'm holding the Hilti rotary hammer drill I got from my granddad.
I hope you have enjoyed this shop tour. Please feel free to ask if you have any questions. Regards, Christian
