Cool Nice comment Glenmore!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice, real nice Glenmore, and I was only going to ask if your boy was using a "WIDE" angle lens on the camera.

Hi Glenmore

I was looking around on the HF web site and I saw a seat that would work well for I think...

I'm sure that Glenmore will appreciate your thoughts Bj, but I think the one he uses is much more manoeuvreable and takes up less space.

Hi Harry

In his snapshot it looks like his shop is very small and he can only move up and down or to say along the work bench, the green one will let him spin around to get to the band saw and the other work bench, plus when he gets up it will not get stuck in the crack so to speak.. and should help with his back..

Glenmore, don't get that mobile chair that BJ has shown,,,,,,, Look man,
there is no motor, no steering, I bet the brakes don't even work.

Have a great woodworking day!

Bj you can sit and spin my chair does just that it spins and rolls. Plus the height of the one you shown wouldn't be high enough.

I am glad to see I am not alone when it comes to sitting in front of the machines. If I am going to be at a machine and/or bench I have stools that I sit on. My back can not handle long periods of standing.
