Parts room

We are getting into the time of year that we are routinely getting days where we cannot perform any maintenance out on the course due to rain, wind and cold temps.  During these days all the part time seasonal help is sent home and it gives the full time employees an opportunity to start working on our typical winter projects.  Over the past few weeks on rainy days we have been spending some time on our parts room.  This little room needed a complete makeover.  We had parts to machines we haven't owned in some time and the shear volume of parts made finding what you were looking for cumbersome and inefficient.  We now have a parts room where we only have on inventory the necessary parts, they are labeled, clean and organized.
First we had to take all the parts out of the room.

It's amazing how much stuff can fit into a 8 X 10 room.

We then put up plywood on all the walls.  It was just open insulation.

Next was a nice looking coat of paint.

We spent a lot of time going through all the parts, categorizing them and throwing away the junk.

We now have a clean, organized parts room.  We can find items efficiently and we no longer have parts on inventory that we don't need.  A clean shop is a happy shop.
