The Sjobergs Elite cabinetmaker's workbenches are made in Sweden to the very highest standards. Designed to totally eliminate any vibration, rocking or racking, they are suitable for the most demanding professionals. For maximum strength, the top is constructed with full-length laminations of knot-free European beech, without any ugly splices. Solid beech is also used in the preassembled trestle frames, and the entire bench is treated with top-quality oil. The tops are just under 3-3/8'' thick in the middle, joined with tongue and groove joints for consistent flatness. The skirt around the edge is a sturdy 4-5/16'' in height. The two massive pre-mounted vises, made in Sweden exclusively for Sjobergs, boast a 5-3/4'' opening capacity, and slide along fully adjustable guide rails to eliminate any jaw misalignment. If you are left-handed, the front vise can be moved to the other side of the bench, and the top rotated 180°. The bench also includes four solid steel bench dogs with side springs, while double rows of dog holes permit even the toughest clamping jobs using either vise. The heaviest, most durable benches in the Sjobergs line-built from solid beech and treated with top-quality oilMassive vises are 29'' wide with a 5-3/4'' opening capacityDouble rows of bench dog holes extend from both vise locationsTrestle is also pre-drilled with dog holesIncluded cabinet with doors and drawers offers convenient tool storage and added mass, which further eliminates vibrationIncludes four unbreakable 1'' round steel bench dogs that can be used in both the benchtop and the trestleVises can be rotated for both left- and right-handed useOptional Height Adjustment Blocks (56753, sold separately) raise the working height by 3-1/2'' for taller woodworkers
Use these soft-gripped clamps to ensure perfectly flush pocket-hole joint lines everytime. Without clamping, the joint can misalign if the screws follow the grain of the wood. These clamps eliminate that threat and deliver cleaner, more precise fits. 10" Reach.Also available in two other sizes: Premium (3-1/4" reach) and Large (6" reach).Each clamp features a soft rubber handle for comfortable operation. To use the clamps, place the large pad of the clamp directly over the center of the joint line on the face side of the workpiece (opposite the pocket holes), then clamp with moderate pressure and drive a screw.
