I know that photography can sometimes be deceiving, but that sure looks like an XXXL clamp sitting on top of that very nice tool chest. Nice snag on the bargains :sold:

I like it as well Roger. Even if the leg system is to flimsy it could be shored up pretty easily. I like the drawers in it. If the top isn't perfectly flat which it probably isn't you could use a router sled to plane it down flat.Roefa said:The oak workbench for $180.00 intrigues me. I have set aside a few plans and pictures with the thought of building one myself in mind, but now I would have to weigh my time and cost of materials against moving ahead to something more exotic or difficult, and just buying the "Stoe Bawt" bench. The only real downside would be losing bragging rights... i.e. "I built this." Ha ha... I may forego the ego trip!
Ha ha... I don't know if I would call it a joke but it certainly isn't what it appears. Still not a bad deal for 150.00 with all the drawers etc. don't yah think?Bob N said:Some things you need to be aware of before jumping on that HF workbench.
Well... that is true Bob Where did that masked man go any way? He left this silver screw!!Bob N said:Not sure on that one Corey. I had a friend teach me how to build drawers with a Kreg jig a while back and I think I could build a lot of drawrers for that $150

Well just a update on the clamps,,, Great clamps for the price...
They are made with nice Oak and made very well,,they use a helix rod in the center of the clamps to keep them true when you slide them out for a quick release, the locking device is a pin that pulls up when you push the bar down,they also have a pocket in the Oak to put your fingers, the silver bar on the back side of the clamp is a safety bar ,they are very hvy.about twice as hvy as the standard wooden clamps...one thing nice about them is they can be taken down unlike the normal wooden clamps once the handles are on and it place...that makes it nice to clean the rods up...when a bit of glue gets on them...they work the same way as the normal ones but with the quick release.
All and All great clamps and they would make a great gift for the wood worker for this Xmax.
