Default Good used quality shop equipment

finally got a garage of my own. now need to outfit it with the proper equipment. i already got the fridge, beer, and pin up thing going on. I am sure there are lots of other things I am missing. If there is anything relevant that you think is good for any 1st garage feel free to let me know.

immediate needs;
steel cabinet
work bench (prefer wood top. like a cutting table but not)FOUND
other misc. storage
floor jack
jack stands
hand tools(wrenches metric/standard, 1/2 drive rachet sets, ect..)
electric power tools

things that would be nice to have but not necessary at the moment;
small torches
mig welder
engine stand
cherry picker

for a bench, I built one out of 4x4's for the legs, with 2x6's for the frame, and for the top surface, then covered the top with a piece of 1/4" hardboard (or whatever that stuff is called...same material as pegboard, without the holes)...that gives it a nice smooth surface that is easily replaceable when it gets damaged...mine has lasted well for about 5 years or so now, may have to flip the top surface over in about another 2-3 years...so 1 piece should last about 8-10 years

for misc storage, and whatever tools, watch the yardsales in the springtime...you'll find plenty of dressers, cabinets, or whatever that could work for basic storage...may even find a steel locker/cabinet at a decent price...

I've got an 80k btu self igniting updraft furnace I've been using in my garage that I'm looking toget rid of maybe $100. It heats my 2 car garage in about ten minutes or less. Only about 150 hours on it.

hey thanks i will definatly keep this in mind. would be nice to have heat in there, but i am not yet capable or doing more than rotating tires w the resources i currently have! hopefully as time progresses and my collect grows i will be able to take on a heating element.

just picked up a B-A table from pyrowaves buddy. thanks again
