AMT4EVR added a topic in GeneralHobby Room/Workbench questionsGREETINGS, fellow builders,
As I'am revamping my hobbyroom, I've placed WHITE pegboard on some walls and also on the walls around the workbench to reflect lighting better.
LIGHTING; What do you like?, the hum and buzz of CFL bulbs or the LED ones that cost more, what gives more light.
WORKBENCH; On the bench top, I placed a sheet of white paper and over layed that with a sheet of plexi-glass. Good choice or bad for the plexi ??. The bench will also have more lighting overhead.
PEGBOARD; On walls now, so that I can hang parts, tools, clipboards etc, and I can stop digging through endless boxes of stuff to find what I need.
Did I do good ?, what's your take on this, any comments are always welcomed if there's room for more improvment.

AMT4EVR added a topic in GeneralTESTORS paint prices....OUCH.!GREETINGS fellow builders, went to the L.H.S. today to pick up some paint, and oh my goodness, can you belive this...TESTORS 3oz. regular and model master spray is $ 6.50 a can, 1/2 oz. model master bottles is $ 4.00 and regular 1/4 oz. bottles is $ 2.00. Not only did testors do this, so did all the rest of the companies who supply us with our products. Just wanted to let all of you know so that there is no suffering of "sticker shock" when you arrive. So does this mean that I`am going to toss out my kits and stop building ??? NO, but it pinches the `ol hobby dollar a lot more.
