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.

With four standard vise locations—one on each end, and two along the front edge—the Sjobergs Duo is capable of securely holding nearly any workpiece. Constructed entirely from solid European beech, it also makes no sacrifices in durability. The vises can be rotated to suit left- or right-handed woodworkers. In addition, they can be positioned as dual front vises to hold extra-long boards for jointing, or as dual tail vises for an extended lengthwise clamping capacity of 63''. For strength, the tops are constructed with full-length laminations of knot-free European beech, without any ugly splices. With a thickness of just over 1'' in the center, and a skirt of 2-3/4'', the top is very rigid. The Sjobergs Duo cabinetmaker's workbench is built to provide a lifetime of hard use and enjoyment.

Armor Auto-Adjust toggle clamps automatically adjust for different thicknesses of material, eliminating the need to readjust the clamp when changing stock. Whether you're clamping a standard piece of 3/4'' stock or a thin sheet of veneer, one flip of the lever is all it takes to secure your work. The clamp has a low-profile, vertically oriented baseplate, making it ideal as a hold-down clamp for the perimeter of jigs, fixtures, workbenches and assembly tables. When closed, it maintains a horizontal orientation so it won't obstruct your work. Clamping force is easily adjustable-simply rotate the adjustment screw to increase or decrease the pressure. Once set, it stays the same for all thicknesses-just set it and forget it. The threaded post allows additional adjustment range when needed. Auto-Adjust: Armor's Auto-Adjust technology automatically adjusts to variations in workpiece dimensions while maintaining consistent clamping pressureAdjustable Clamping Pressure: The integrated adjustment screw is used to create a wide range of clamping pressures. Rotate the screw clockwise to decrease and counterclockwise to increase the clamping forceStrong, Lightweight: Auto Clamps are constructed of ZAMAK Zinc alloy, which allows for an incredibly strong, lightweight toolOne-Handed Operation: Armor's Auto-Pro AutoClamps are designed for one-handed operation, a huge advantage over the competitionVertical Base Plate: Low-profile right-angle baseplate makes it easy to secure this clamp to the edges of jigs, fixtures, workbenches and assembly tablesLarge Soft-Grip Handle: Features soft insets for maximum grip and comfort
