I agree. You could list that thing at machineryseller.co.nz/
Just say 'tenders invited' - and when that closes add $6.50 courier fee to the highest tender and see what reaction you get. :)

Lovely work of the hoist, workbench and 3-jaw chuck.
I'm a bit puzzled by the bamboo poles, but I'm sure all will be revealed. :)

You could try polishing some fibre optic up one side, light only comes out if the ends are polished (don't go there) not sure if it would work on a side but it would be worth a try, then you could have the polished side facing downward.

Very nice gap filler. If you're at the stage where you're talking gap fillers - are you struggling for ideas? :)

How about:
Workbench with vice & tool box;
Storage cabinet - big tall one - covered in racing stickers;
Steel rack for the chassis fabricator to get his steel from - and lots of off-cuts all over the floor;
Drop saw - or at least an angle grinder with cutting discs - and discs all over the floor;
Lots of wheels & lots of tyres;
Rattle guns lying on the floor;
Rags - fresh ones in bag - dirty ones everywhere else;
Oil & fuel drums - with one of those hand crank rotary pumps;
Cardboard boxes - from spark plug size to really big;
Paperwork - engineering drawings - receipts - packing slips;
Calendar on the wall - girly or racecars;
Broom, brush & shovel and rubbish bin;

I'll add more if I think of anything else. :)

Pukka looking setup Glenn. I think being a Nascar workshop you just gotta add a computerized tube bender. I dare you! :evil: :lol:
