I’‘m building a split top Roubo bench and saw on some blog someone who used heavy duty levelers in the legs to level the bench on an uneven floor. Does anyone out there know of a source of these levelers that will hold 3-500 pounds of workbench? Thanks for the help.

Are you going to be moving it around regularly?

If it’s likely to stay put, how about wood shims as needed, applied with a dot of hot melt glue? Mark where it sits and it will always be level there.

Kindly,

Lee

These are the ones I purchased for a bank of shop cabinets I’m making and this is the cheapest price I found them (they were even less when I bought them): http://www.wwhardware.com/heavy-duty-leg-leveler-sygheavy-m10x75
