When I build my own house it will be setup the same way. Only way to go really if you can afford the bank.

For a normal two car garage I was quoted $600 to have a company come out and put down industrial grade epoxy flooring. It was $980 for polished and sealed concrete. You can DIY with the residential stuff from homedepot for about $120.

The wall board is going to be less that $200 to do the whole garage. It will protect my walls from holes and water from the power washer... it's worth it. Besides, I always get a stiffy seeing a nice clean garage with a groovy toolbox and a mini lathe & mill

I'm trying to get a new toy for the office from these guys:
www.flashcutcnc.com

But they don't have the model I want available for a demo :(

those are fair prices... if you make more than a few parts a month you can pay it off with the cash you save at machine shops in just a few years.

easily. plus no lead time for production and/or prototypes beyond what I have to do myself.

and we tend to only sell 25-100 of any one product in a year so a whole year's production could be done in a few days.

You guys CLEARLY don't visit the Ultimate Garage forum. That guy's garage is nothing compared to the kind of stuff that people from that forum have built.

Yeah, ultimate garage has some ridiculous stuff, but those guys are on a different socioeconomic level...their garages have Porsches and Ferraris, not Miatas.

I like how people go through all that bs just to align a car yourself. I get the local porsche shop to do mine to my specs, with my weight for $50. hehe

I couldn't be bothered either. I could see the point if you were making suspension changes to the car all the time. I know some top level autocrossers will make tweaks to the alignment to suit course and surface conditions.
