      So what STUFF do you work on. I work on about everything except for cleaning my work area. I have my collection skewn across the floor. My stove is right in the middle of what used to be my 6 inch walkway covered in melted plastic from an "incident" There is old towels and random parts all over my workbench. its a nightmare. Ill pm you a pic tomorrow if you like.


Stoves and lanterns.
Antique tractors. Implements used with them.
Yard equipment. Mowers ect..
Wheelchairs.
Firearms.
All leading to Easter egg hunts multiple places to round up tools for projects.
I'd hauled multiple tool chests to the basement before losing a leg. Another is in the packed little shed. A small one is  in one of the trucks.
Most gun tools are in the bedroom gun vice. Not a good place for solvents and residues..
The stairs are a pain when carrying anything today. But there's no practical room in the house/shack to set up a workshop/tool storage.

A sheltered bench and all tools in a workshop , (well most tools anyways) would help. A hard surfaced access to get to it would be a bonus.
More so in winter.
Tearing something down that takes more than a day bothers me by leaving stuff out. But , I do what needs done to get something running or maintain it. One trucks bed holds multiple projects in varied stages. 
A small dirt floored tarp shed that is supposed to shelter a tractor hosts the generator and tractor parts. And misc. seasonal stuff like fertilizer and lime (for a distant property with no outbuilding )  and yard tools. Not a good place to breath the dust.

I used to wage near war over my workbench in an industry.
Use it when I'm not there , but leave it like you found it.
Someone from another shift would ask where an item they left on it was , and be told to look in the trash or the scrap bin outside.
Then be told this is my corner of the world with my name on it and the only one I am in charge of that will stay clean. Don't crap on it.

So called adults were teachable . Eventually.


Purty colors. Well , cept'n maybe that brown when it's on fire...

At 13, I had near-zero patience. I was a destroyer of just about anything that I happened to get my hands on.
Don't be over-cautious about it or you won't even attempt anything. Nature would run its course. The more you wreck and ruin, the richer the experience you'd gain at the end.(Of course, this must be non-deliberate and genuine).
But do take note of the advice from those who had been there and done it(many times over). You might be able to gain lots of knowledge in a relatively short time but wisdom is only truly gained from real experience, which unfortunately, usually proportional to age.
Anyway, heat and quench would eventually blast through almost any rust-seized items.
If repeatedly heating the metal parts to red doesn't sound too comfortable, you could try boiling them in a mixture of brake fluid and ATF for a while. That would be a high temperature version of penetrating oil. Don't do this inside the house. This can be dangerous if you don't take safety measures.

Oh man. I am A-OK with lighting stuff red hot, my parents aren’t too keen on it though. I have to use a lantern without a mantle as a blowtorch for the seals on fuel caps.
My friends don’t call me “Lantern/lampie Levi”
for nothin’,if they did call me that.

Looking for bday lanterns 8/38, 8/41, 
10/25, and 8/07

The biggest lie I tell myself is
”I don’t need to write that down, I’ll remember it.”

When a stuck fuel cap goes 50+ post, there are issues beyond the stuck fuel cap. Not long back someone else agonized for 50+ post on a stuck fuel cap, then magic happened and the cap was off. In my very limited experience, they come off if sufficient effort is applied. Just saying.

@zoomkat, Zoom, you do realize we are walking a 13 year old through this, right?

Yes, if he has another person there who can apply "sufficient effort", undoubtedly things would go faster.

My pile of to do is non-existent 


Taking note of the Incongruity of these to statements:

I have a similar problem so I'm hardly one to throw rocks, but picking up after yourself and having your tools back where they belong is essential to getting other work done.  I'm pretty good on the second.  I also need to work on the first...

When I do, EVRYTHING goes faster, and I'm actually extraordinary for keeping and organizing old parts and materials, but it's easy to let things slip... THATS the downfalll...

Probably, or maybe;  I have 27 top chests, 4 intermediates, 14 rollers, plus other tool storage.  Its still difficult...

I've been collecting tools since I was in the 5th grade.
