Customer Work Benches
Laurens from Holland sent me these pictures of his new workshop extension, definitely one for the warmer weather! He restored the work bench with a lot of effort, but it looks well worth it. The vice weighs 60 kg and dates from the early 1900's and the bench itself dates from around 1935.
Note how the bolt holding the ends on has been exposed with use.
Below is very solid bench made by Nick in the UK, it has a 4" thick top and a very deep front apron. He was going to install a Moxon vice as his only front vice but I persuaded him a leg vice would be much more flexible. Nick has used a Veritas screw which will work very well. It is cheap to buy and easy to install.
