Ah , didnt know they made two models .
no just one space.. the one on the far right side... thats ok though cause thats where the washing machine/dryer and storage are.... that big table will be almost perfect for building motors etc. once i get some formica down on it...
Formica countertop for motors?
It was sold in Canada - pretty awesome machine too.
Would clean right up with a paper towel and some simple green.
I did not think formica would hold up to heavy duty usage.
I don't do heavy duty engine work on my workbench but the linoleum I put on the work top is holding holding up well.
I went with raw 3/4 inch plywood, which i oil periodically(usually with oil i spill by accident and spread out over the bench). Holds up nicely.
Ive always toyed with the idea of covering it with a sheet of stainless steel.
I used it for several years. It is amazingly durable unless you are doing major hammering on it.
Agreed. Especially the barrel of aged Bourbon.
This is one of my favorites yet. Very nice dude. When were you in the 'Stan?
Extra points for straight six crank in corner.
I was there in '08 at FOB Mehtar Lam and COP Najil. Were you over?
I had my bench top made from SS for many years. I just changed it to two layers of 3/4" maple plywood.
I never liked the metal, always felt cold and every time I worked on guns I had to cover it.
It'll puncture and scratch but if things get too bad, just glue another piece on top. You can usually find leftover pieces at custom cabinetry shops. If the scratches aren't too deep, you can use filler putty to hide them.
I have a steel workbench top, but I saved a sink cut-out from my bathroom vanities. I use it a lot when working on messy stuff or potentially nasty things (like filling batteries with acid).
That's all the encouragement i need to save the $$$
mine is doubled up too, but just regular plain old plywood.
I love your pup sneaking into the pic
Saw this neat setup for those of us without garages ( )
Why thank you!
Unfortunately, I have to subtract a bum load of points because the crank is STILL in the corner, and not back in the engine.
LOL. He sneaks into lots of my pictures. As soon as I pull out the phone and start taking pictures of stuff, he gets curious.
