Here is my functional Pneumatic Workbench.
Steers like a pallet jack for tight spots!
Lots of work so far, it is a one-off as I have never seen anything like it.
I will be making a nice top for it this spring.

Thoughts? Comments?
Thanks

I like it… when you replace the top are you going to have a bit of an over hang?

Thanks, Yes it will have an overhang. I plan on incorporating a moxon vise and some dog holes as well.

What is pneumatic about the bench? The pictures are too vague.

This is an image of the front suspension. I steers like a pallet jack, 360 degree turning radius. I will get a better image of the rear. The rear is a trailing arm style suspension also with 2 air cylinders.

I see now. Thanks. My bench doesn’t move! Actually, I don’t have any place to move it to! :-(

Thanks for posting the video. I see said the blind man.

My question is can you reroute the air lines to free up some space? At least one drawer (or maybe two) would really come in handy. I keep all sorts of small stuff in the two top drawers -like measuring devices, pencils, marking thingy’s like small tri square, general do it all chisel, all at my finger tips.

I agree! A drawer would come in handy for sure. The air lines will get routed better.
Thanks for the comments!

Since you are a new guy on the block, take a look at my work bench. It is not pneumatic and doesn’t get moved around. But it is very handy and I have built all sorts of stuff including 50+ cabinets, drawers, liquor cabinet, baby changing station…you name it. I have a lot of projects in my gallery.

My work bench”: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/68635. Note that I have Kreg klamp tracks and regular T track and some dog holes (which don’t get used much). I am not a traditional woodworker that uses a lot of hand tools. This work bench has really worked out nice. 30×45 or thereabouts. I added the drawers over the last couple of years. The two bottom drawers are full of 6 inch f style clamps. They are always right there when I need one. That is why I mentioned adding a drawer or two to your bench.

I have even added a back porch onto the bench for times when I need that extra width. It folds down out of the way when not needed. However, it is helpful when I rip wide sheet goods.

And then there is Bernie's work bench. I really like it.

Hope you get some inspiration from some of these ideas.
Mike
