The guy that was giving me this stuff had a restored car, Not sure on the type. I noticed all the nice tools he used to do it though. He began telling me how he has the lathe and mill in a different garage. I told him I'm looking into getting a lathe, but am a little ways out on it as of now. Without missing a beat he told me to come to the auction after he dies.

Good haul... I gave about the same stuff away! Local K-Mart closed out and we got a ton of shelving, but had to disassemble. Neighbor had the haul of it, and I took what was left over to help him clean up.

Built a bunch of shelving (2' and 4' side beams) and got shelves built. Ran out of 2' long section, cut and drilled 4' sections in half. Drop in 3/4" plywood... stout shelving.

Slowly trying to "clean up the crap" behind, and around the shop (anyone need a bunch of 2' x 14' steel siding panels?).

Use two sections, and you have some great screw driver holders.

FIL is in town for holiday, and he just cannot sit still. Finally got around to making something out of this stuff. About 20' of 18" deep shelving 3 high.
