  • New workbench for a customer

    Thought you folks might be interested in a project we are working on for a customer. A new shop workbench that I wish was staying here.Dimensions are 10 ft.long,36" high. Used 99ft. of 1-1/2" sq. tube. Put 6" X 1/2" plate on either end on front corners to mount vise after top is installed. Top is 10 guage sheet. 30" from front to back. Remainder of 10 guage used as a short back on second shelf to keep things from falling off. Second shelf & ends are 14 guage.

              Very Nice Job!
              I like the back splash to keep parts from rolling off and falling behind where you can't reach them.

                      I want one! No make that 2. I need an extra with a drop in slot to put the cutoff saw.

                            Yeah that is a great idea. We made a material rack at the shop that has a spot in the middle for our miter saw (we use it to cut aluminum extrusions) and a roller bed on either side. It works very slick, you just have to clean up the short crops that always seem to clutter everything up!!!

                              Real nice job on that bench. I like the chop saw idea also.
