    What's On Your Work Bench?

    What's on your work bench? This is the official topic for images and friendly chatter regarding that all important surface, the personal statement of your shop, the steadfast friend we can always count on, the space of your shop that nobody knows better than you, we are talking about the almighty "Work Bench". Submit your images now! That's right, don't clean it up, don't be embarrassed, the messier the better, or if there is nothing on it at all, that is fine too. If you have not touched your bench in years, and you have taken a break from woodworking and have boxes piled on it, we want that image too! All images are welcome. Spirit of Topic This is a Hit-n-Run topic, as you walk past your bench, whip out your camera or smart phone, and snap a shot, load it up here. No need for text explanations if you don't want too. To kick this off, walk out in your shop and snap a picture of your bench surface now, and lets get this topic rolling. This will be an ongoing topic, for you to share images of your bench top today, and every day. Types of benches Some of us have small benches, some of us have big benches, some of us use a space in our dining room, some may have a picnic table they use for a bench, and some of us may have a bench of all benches, the traditional joiners bench, or a beautiful full cabinet shakers bench. No matter what you call your work surface, no matter what your work surface looks like, we want to see images of your bench! Thank you in advance to the participants!

    12volt Task Lamp

    Reality check, none of us are getting any younger. Where we once could see in the dark we now drag out a flashlight. Same is true when making cuts. You want to see the line, clearly. Okay see it at all some days. Task lamps are easy enough to buy but rarely fit where we want them. So enter 12 volt fog lamps. 30 watts of very bright light in a small package that is meant to survive outside and mounted on a bumper being bounced around in the outback. Or Georgia roads, take your pick. The lamp arms are 9 ½ inches long. Inside each arm a channel was made to accept the wiring. While I was unable to hide all the wiring, most of it is and that means less to get stuck or grabbed by something. The arcs of the swing portion were cut offs from aluminum seat pieces my Dad gave me, I believe from a 737. These fit nicely and give it a tad bit more swing back into the window when not in use. 12 volt power is supplied by a power source I build some time ago. I currently have 3 in use in the shop for other task lamps or LED strip lights I installed. The lamps do not come with a on off switch. For this I used a car alarm valet switche and grafted the wires into place then put covering over them. Had too be creative and make a small switchblade then JB weld in two studs for mounting. Perhaps not pretty but for this application it works well. Enjoy and be inspired.

    End Vise Tune Up

    Tonight I pulled my end vise from my new bench. When I picked up my bench over a month ago, I noticed the vise was very stiff. Beyond stiff, actually the tube holes swelled around the tubes to the point of zero clearance, as a matter of fact the wood was tight around the tubes. I don't know when the last time was that the previous owner used his vise, it could have been years, judging by how his shop appeared to have not been worked in for a long time, he may have not known that his vise was nearly in-operable. at 95 years old, he may not have even been able to spin the handle, maybe, maybe not. I was able to turn the handle, it was tight but functioned. I removed the end vise from the bench top, I had to remove 4 bolts and unscrew the tube supports from under the top, the straight slot screws were a joy to spin out. Image below, end vise removed. Once it was unbolted and unscrewed, I had to wiggle it off the hard wood spline you see in the first image. I quickly set it on the floor, it was heavy. It is as wide as the bench, and takes up about a half of the real estate under the bench. Jim, the previous owner, all his work was and is so precise, I have viewed his metal working, leather work, and woodworking, and all his work was done with careful precision, I am only surmising here, but with his machinist background I am wagering he made this vise to operate with very close tolerances, regarding the tube holes, possibly not taking wood movement or swelling into consideration. But then as I type this, I am telling myself, he was a highly experienced woodworker, he must of known about wood movement, so the fact that his home is only blocks from the ocean, may have more to do with the swelling around the vise tube holes than the manufacturing process. Top of the vise, note the dog holes in the top face. I had to remove the pins that held the sliding block in place on the operating tubes. The two inside tubes are fixed, the two outside tubes slide. The tubes were so tight, I had to use a combination of pounding, and letting the vise do its own work against it self. I inserted two blocks of wood between the end tubes, and the stationary block, then screwed the vise closed, and pushed the end stationary block off the tubes. Vise is flipped over and viewing bottom of vise. Finally, after much persuasion and heavy thinking, I got the entire assembly separated. I had to carefully beat and push the blocks off the tubes, imagine how stiff the vise was to actually operate. Now the work begins to create some daylight between the tube holes, and the tubes themselves. I am being creative right now on how to do this, so any suggestions are greatly appreciated. My first thought is to spend some time with a sanding drum on a drill, and just sand the inside of the holes till I have about 1/32nd all around the tubes. I love this old vise, I hope to breath new life into it, and have a fully functional end vise, I know I will, just takes a little elbow grease.

  8. While scanning Workbench Magazine plans for our files sharing center, I ran across this old article, featuring the Workbench model shop, not to build models, but a shot at the time I am sure is a shop the home hobbyist would drool over. Just fun stuff

    Building Plans

    Does anyone here use a design program or anything to draw up plans for their work? I am wanting to build my own workbench and would like to draw up some plans for it.

    Workbench questions

    I scrapped my 40+ year old workbench a while back, and am looking for materials for a replacement. Meanwhile, my son has started construction on his new house. As luck would have it, this house is being built with 8" x 8" hemlock logs, with FULL 2" x 4" floors, and other assorted sizes of lumber, all hemlock. I now have the opportunity to get some leftover pieces, and was wondering if anybody has had any experience with this wood. 8 x 8 legs, 4" thick top..... it shouldn't move around too much while planing! Any thoughts? John

    Workbench Question

    I have this question - I would like to build a workbench like the one shown below. Would CVG Douglas Fir work for the legs, feet and stringers? I am thinking that is might be possible for me to get the DF cheaper than Ash, Hickory or Eastern Hard Maple. What are your thoughts? The top will be hardwood.
