Default Pretty neat to find out

Hi guys found out that I've did this all along but with the height of all my benches turns out that I can sit comfortably with my wheel chair. Also made them high enough that I can sit under them. Such as with the miter saw and found when I'm turning can get close and personal with the lathe. Found that 28" to 30" in height is a good height for sitting in a wheelchair. So that is my recommendation for fellow handicapped members or just someone that wants sit comfortably at his or her work.

"when I'm turning can get close and personal with the lathe."

Any more of this dirty talk Glenmore and I'll be talking to Nancy.

Guys after working in the shop last night til 1 AM I took the day off. Tomorrow going to get my router table humming going to do some experiment cuts. Also made a bench dedicated to my bench top router table rigged up a shrewd dust collector for it. Ugly but it works. At least I hope I'll get some pics of it tomorrow.

I took yesterday off. Went home expecting to install my router fence but was so tired I just went to bed. Is this a sign I'm getting old? <g>

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!

YEP! It sure is. Or, maybe you are just working too hard.

Glenmore, I have come to exactly the same conclusion. I build my benches to 29 in (73.7 cm). If only I could the benches at my day job made to that height!
