I found an old Shopsmith Bench at a Thrift store in Tucson for a $100 no way one could be built for that. I was surprised one of the Arizona boys didn't snap it up.
What I like most is the tail vice it works well an is surprisingly universal. What I don't like about it is the tool tray. I have wasted more epithets on that &%$@###! tool tray than I can count.
By the way it cooled down a little hear it was only 70.5 deg.[/quote]
I've never had a bench with a tool tray. What kind of grief did it give you?
