Idea for article...

Postby dietzer » Sun Mar 25, 2007 12:39 am

Hey guys,

I wanted to get your opinion on a possible idea for an article. I had designed and built a portable workbench to use for modelling, but I don't know if it's something anybody else would be interested in.

I'm attaching some pics of the workbench. I designed it to hold my mini-lathe and other tools and parts for subs. It has a lot of storage built into it. It also includes a pull-out cutting board which can be flipped over and used as a extra worktop.

Do you guys think this is worth writing an article about? I'm not sure I'd bother submitting it except I see that they need articles...

Thanks,

Carl

Hey guys,

I forgot to post this image with the rest. It's of the pull-out supports for the folding wings. The wings fold flat over the benchtop. The benchtop is 25-1/2" by 36", the folding wings can extend it to 25-1/2" x 72".

Carl,

Of COURSE it's a great idea. A real change of pace too! Didn't we speak of this before? What's keeping you? :wink:

Carl,

Very nice work! I would definitely like to see this done up as an article for the SCR. It will be a great addition to the how-to articles.

Thanks, Jeff -- and Jeff! :D

It's too late to get stuff in for the June issue, and I've no free time to write it up right now anyways. But I'll try to get it written up by July so it can be ready for the Sept issue if needed.

Thanks again,

Carl

Most excellent. Maybe by then you'll have had a chance to break it in? :)
