The Axminster 1500 workbench is suitable for professionals, the home workshop or hobby woodworkers.
The bench top is kiln-dried beech wood, chosen for its toughness and resilience. Its laminated construction ensures the top is stable and rigid and will remain flat throughout its working life. A lacquered finish gives maximum protection. The bench top is 30mm thick with a 90mm deep apron and includes 2 vices. The vices have 360mm wide jaws opening to a maximum of 130mm. They feature a strong central screw with steel guide bars on each side.
The bench top includes 2 double rows of bench dog holes, one from each vice. Used with the dog holes in the vice, they allow you to hold workpieces with a wide variation in size or shape. The bench includes 4 bench dogs. Dog holes in the legs allow you to clamp items vertically.
The underframe is solid beech. A full length shelf in the base offers storage for larger tools or materials.
The bench comes flat packed with full instructions for assembly.
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.

Not GreatI've had one of these for about 18 months. The top has warped considerably and is no longer flat. Serves well as a table but isn't much good as a work bench.

Everything I expectedThis bench is excellent. Solid, flat and the perfect size for my workshop, (garage).
