Remember those days in high school shop, the workbenches that the kids would do anything to, except work on?
Well I ended up buying 6 of them about 2 years ago, and re-finished the cabinets, taking out all kinds of wonderful dents, or at least the big ones, sand blasting inside and out, and painting with enamel. Clamps came with them and given a complete overhaul. Maple tops were originally 2-1/4 in. thick, wide belt sanded down to 2-1/8th in. thick, this was after much swearing over the holes drilled in that I plugged with maple dowel, and numerous nails of varying sizes were extracted. Finished in teak oil, so I can re-oil when needed. Then with my trusty Millermatic mig welder, I built a lowboy rolling frame, covered in gray enamel. If I ever catch a little ass…e driving a nail in it, I will use his teeth to get it out!!!!!! Sold 2 of these, another given to a friend, so I’ve got 2 left and no room to put them in, at a friends house in storage for right now. If someone needs one, let me know, I want to keep another to use in my future, bigger shop. Have a great day folks, thanks for looking, at my newest baby.
