    I got sick of rolling around on th floor and kneeling as well. I have 3 Handy air lift tables at my shop at school and finally found one for sale locally a few weeks ago. What a game changer!

    You have a really nice shop setup sir. That lift table is perfect. On a side note, what type/size tires do you have on the Red?...They look good.

    Thank you! I love my barn. Just wish it was bigger lol. Itís like a gun safe, you can never have one too big! My shop is only 30x40. When you park 2 trucks, a Willyís Jeep, a ford tractor, a quad or two, and 5 trikes in there for the winter, she gets a bit snug to work in.

    I don't want to hijack this post either but was hoping I could sneak in one more quick question...I see you're workbench in the background, and was wondering how high/deep it is? I'm in the process of finishing up the drywall on my 24x26 shop, and so the next step will be installing shelving and workbench. I'm putting some thought into the workbench because I only want to build it once! Ha ha

    I will measure the bench tomorrow for you. I spent some money on that darn thing. The top is 3/4 birch. My old man built it for me and it is stout as hell. Iíll take a couple more pics of it too so you can see it better. Itís the perfect height too.

    10-4. How do you find it handles abuse on that large vise? Does it shake like crazy if you're pounding something on there...is it fastened to the wall on the backside?

    I've beat the hell out of things on that vise, hard to tell in that picture but the leg under the vise is a 6x6 as opposed to the 4x4s for the rest of the legs. The bench is fastened to the wall. It's rugged as hell. The only thing I wanna do is make a sheet of steel that fits on that end of the bench. I don't like welding on the bench because its wood.

    Okay, that's good to know then, cause I have a decent sized vise that I'm gonna be mounting to my bench which will be subject to abuse as well. Good call on throwing a larger size leg on the receiving end.
