A traditionally designed beechwood bench equipped with a heavy duty top, tool well at rear and one wooden vice with central screw and twin support bars plus a traditional L shaped tail vice. Built to a very high standard from European beech, the frame members are 40mm by 80mm, the top is a very substantial 50mm thick with 110mm deep edgings and there is a total of 13, 20mm dog holes for clamping longer lengths of timber with the tail vice. The overall width of the working surface is 615mm, including a tool well of 150mm. The end tail vice is 220mm wide and the front vice 520mm, giving plenty of holding width for large pieces of timber. Tool storage is catered for by an underslung drawer, 400mm long. Four 20mm steel bench dogs are provided, two short and two long. The bench is supplied flat packed, so home assembly will be required. Two styles of storages are available as options, one a traditional drawer and cupboard set, the other a drop down tool storage system.
All Axminster workbenches are lacquered top and bottom to help maintain flatness. However, if your workshop is known to get damp, you may need to add more layers of lacquer to help prevent movement.

A nice sturdy benchA nice addition to the workshop. Bought it just before starting a couple of jobs with long lengths of timber to work on and glad I did so. The bench doesn t move at all, the main vice as a smooth action. The tail vice is a little stiff but I don t really use it all that much, it might be the matter of adjusting it a little somehow. I think eventually I ll make my own but at this price this bench makes a great investment and saved me the time.

An excellent substantial benchI acquired this bench to replace a 40year old Sjoberg bench with wooden screw vices which had long ceased to function. This AS bench is extremely heavy (be warned it requires 2 people to assemble it) and is very well-made and will last at least a life-time or two. The instructions of assembly are pretty inadequate and fail to mention that part of the sub-frame has to be removed to enable the LH vice to be seated properly. Also the top benefits from some coats of Danish Oil or similar to obviate against glue spillage etc. But overall it is of excellent quality with the benefit of a traditional tail- vice with all the flexibility of holding work-piceses that results from that construction. Both vices work very smoothly with large capacity jaws.
