World's Best Portable WorkshopCanadian farmer Wilfred Mollenbeck, St. Gregor, Sask., built a portable workbench that he tows around his shop and from building to building on the farm.
Wilfred says that besides making it easy to take tools to the job, the portable workbench also makes it easy to keep his farm shop clean. "I've made most of the large tools in my shop portable to make it easy to keep things clean."
The portable shop was built with all-new parts for a total cost of $458. In the shop it can be easily rolled around by one person. Outside, Mollenbeck pulls it with a small garden tractor.
The front of he bench features 10 sliding tool and parts drawers and racks for arranging tools. The rear of the bench is fitted with 59 self-cleaning bolt bins. The bench has a number of shelves and a wash-basin with a rack to hang parts. In addition, the bench has two 110-volt plug-ins.
A 2-in. ledge on the bench stops oil from running into drawers. There's a 6-in. vice on the bench.
