So. It’s all cool, and a nice addition.

However, I was tickled by the vise rack stop made from credit cards, especially since I just finished making one this morning out of some scrap. I need to keep that in mind for future uses of stupid cards that are sent my way.

That turned out nice.

I see you have trays sitting under the bench. Check out my home made drawers with wheels. It is loaded with bar clamps, yet pulls right out for easy access. You could do the same thing. I built it (and several others) out of what ever I had available. Some have 3/4 inch sides and 1/2 inches sides on the same drawer! :-) Whatever it takes. Five inch wheels and 1/4 inch bolts.

Thanks for the mobile tray idea, Mike. Also looks like a good idea for clamp storage. Chuck

Great table, love the top protector and the use of the old credit cards for the vice to reduce racking
