Popeye the old miner wrote:Man o man.....do you hire people to do all those clamps???? That's a full time job doin em up and takin em off...then you need a forklift to carry em all!! Seriously though whatever it is looks good, and I got a toolbox full of clamps myself. That's a nice lookin workbench you've got there as well. Nice work you did there
Well the R&D guy at my work was there. He fabbed all rhe pieces.......had them CNC drilled for roll pins to locate everything. In a lot of ways where i work is very primitive on equipment......thats where i stepped in to do the welding. Most of the clamp work was done by the R&D guy as i had limited idea on how it went together. I enjoyed this......much more than being back at work.
As far as my bench.....this has been a bench that has morphed 4 times. What you see is a slat table supported on 2 3/8' bolts on both sides......this allows full adjustment. It is an odd size.......37 x 76........this is what fit best in the shop. The spacing of the slats is 1 3/4".....this allows the clamps in the pics (typical vice grips.......11R style i believe) to be used as well as most strong hand style clamps.
