Thanks for posting that picture. I heard rumors about workbenches having tops but I've never seen one around here.

What is that long swinging arm for in your first picture.. I guess that's your welding table.
A clean workbench give you new ideas to clutter it back up.   ;D

At my other job one guy in the shop put a mig welder on a swing arm. The welder was always above your work and no need to wheel it around from one corner to the next.

That's my home-made metal bender. One of my most favorite tools. It gets used often.

That's one reason that I had to clean my table. The junk was deep enough
that the handle was hitting things. To much stuff from the junkyard.

You would not want it... You gotta take it apart in two pieces just to move it...

I'm a vice collector. I have somewhere around 100 vises.
Some of my better ones.

You need that many vises, you keep losing them. :D Regarding vices, I don't think we want to go there.

Your shop looks great and well used. Is the "Liquid Smoke" for when the smoke leaks out of an electronics project, there's been a few times that would have come in handy:)
