Before I'd lay down that Sears Card, I'd check with places like Graingers,
C&H Distributors (chdist.com) or Global Industrial equipment 1-800-645-1232
for their industrial benches. MUCH more substantial with a variety of
risers drawer configurations, tops (even pretty maple butcher block) I've
got 3 of these at my house and they are heavy duty commercial jobs... You
can also check with the used equipment dealers and pick them up very
reasonably... I paid $50.00 each for mine used with one shelf across
bottom and 1 drawer side and backsplash..

Subject: Good workbench?
I'm looking to get a workbench for the shop. I want to get drawers
top strong enough for mounting a heavy 5" vise. What I've been
at right now is the Craftsman:
http://shop.sears.com/sears/65050.jpg ($169 base, $99 steel top)
They all seem to have about what I'm looking for... there are a couple
others, but this is the general jist of what I'm looking for.
Anyone have any better suggestions? I was just going to buy it, but
it didn't seem wise to do without consulting the collective wisdom of
