Topic tags/keywords: workbench

All,

I received this workbench from my mother-in-law. It came out of an old high school in Newark Ohio. It was pulled from the high school in the 1940’s-1950’s and my father-in-law got around 1958. I am trying to 1. identify the maker. 2. Find out more details about it like when it was made.

Any help is appreciated

I will post some new picture in the thread below in the next day or two.

You prompt me to make my own workbench, so hopefully someone will be tasked with similar questions in 100 years or so.

Your bench looks like a Hammacher Schlemmer, you should be able to Google info online and find the model no. Here is a pic of your style bench in a single user.

Thank you everyone. I appreicate the comments.

Turtle,

What makes you believe its a Hammacher Schlemmer? Not doubting you just asking what drove you to that so I can understand. I was thinking it was either a E. H. Sheldon or a W. M. Welch. I cant prove it in any way but all three look very similar.

Thank you everyone for your comments.

Hitman, The top construction looked very similar, the base not so much. I said in my post that it Looks like and thought it might be a lead for you to look into. Here is a better look at the top.

Obvious to me the bench is built for two people to work at. Maybe it was used at a school.
I like it,very well built.
