Electric-Powered Wheeled WorkbenchIt may be the handiest workbench we've ever seen. Oklahoma farmer Myrl Wag-goner put his home-built bench on wheels and equipped it with a pair of halogen lights and electrical outlets.
"Rolls easily to anywhere in the shop or farmyard and it's big enough to carry most of what I need. Saves a lot of time running around the shop and provides lots of light for repair jobs," says Waggoner.
The frame of the bench is made out of square steel tubing. The bench top is a 4 by 8-ft. sheet of 10-ga. steel. A tool holding frame attaches to the back of the bench and is fitted with two floodlights directed out to the work area and a third light focused on the bench. There's also a trouble light on a retractable cord. The bench is fitted with a 110-volt receptacle as well as a 50-ft. extension cord. A second 50-ft. cord runs from the bench to an outlet in the wall.
"I also mounted a fire extinquisher on the side of the cart for safety," says Waggoner, who'd like to fmd a manufacturer for the innovative workbench.
