New Axminster 1700 workbench


axminster 1700 workbench

The new Axminster 1700 workbench is the latest addition to the Axminster range of workbenches.

The bench top of laminated, kiln-dried beech is lacquered on both top and underside for maximum protection. Being tough and resilient, beech is a particularly good choice and a laminated construction results in a stable and rigid worktop that will remain flat.

The bench top is 30mm thick with a 90mm deep apron. The large working surface is 1550 x 500mm (overall, including the vices, the bench measures 1700 x 650mm). Both the front and end vices have a double row of bench dog holes extending the width and length of the worktop. This allows you to hold workpieces with a wide variation in size or shape (four bench dogs included). The 360mm long vices have steel guide bars either side of a strong central screw, the maximum opening is 130mm. The under frame is solid beech. Dog holes in the legs allow you to clamp items vertically. A full length shelf in the base offers storage for larger tools or materials. This bench is supplied flat packed with full instructions for assembly.

Price of £289.96 inc vat is valid until 31 December 2015.
