  4. work bench

    Hey everyone, i would just like to thank you all for your advice and input on this topic. I weighed up all the info you each had given and in the end decided one of the tables above, i also took your advice @RockyAussie, and asked that the table be made without the front beam- which they kindly did for me. I am genuinely thrilled with my new table and really suffered the last two years working at a table not the right height but thats all made up for today. Just wanted to say thanks and show my bench !

  7. work bench

    hey @brmax the second unit comes with the metal top on the table - and its 200euro I've just moved my studio, and the space it would fit would be in the centre of the room. i would go for the legs from global, but i think they are only based in the USA and it would take some time for it to arrive and maybe a nice bit extra to ship making it not such good deal. the third work bench comes with everything you see in the picture. and , it is expensive / but if it worked well i would be happy with it. and its not much more than the one in the second picture really ?

    thanks @JMcC for the feed back. what do u think of the second work bench btw? its just located more conveinintly to me. i think you are right the 3rd one is the best though, think i will go with it - thanks again its lovely to hear what other leather workers think. hey @alpha2, well thats okay then, you could always do your hammering over the legs of the table? it looks great btw, wow , very cool you made it yourself , very impressive!
  9. work bench

    thanks everyone for sharing, what do you all think of these workbenches.... the first one is basic and i wonder would the top really take much hammering? the second one looks more sturdy than the first one i think, the third one looks about the best for my needs but opinions and advice are really appreciated ! @Earl Ash- i would do what you did with he legs but I'm assuming that is america? it would be good for me to get something in ireland @alpha2- i love the look of your work bench, but i would imagine those casters would take some abuse really after a bit if hammering. and perhaps the wood too? @brmax- what do you think of these three work benches i have my eye on? your advice sound great, i will definitely see if i can get a rubber mat for my bench. thank you all very much! work bench.tiff workbench2.tiff workbench 3.tiff

  15. Clicker Knife Not working

    Hey Everybody ! I;ve been using these two clicker knifes for about two years now. I am just wondering do they stop working after a time ? When i am changing blades now , i can't seem to get the new blade to fasten into the knife handle anymore. Is this a common problem and do i just need new ones or am i doing something wrong ? Any/ all advice welcome ! Thanks, S
