PostSubject: 2 power benches?   March 13th 2009, 6:05 am

Is anyone using 2 power benches? I was talking to George and it seemed like a good idea at the time. After sleeping on it
maybe its overkill. I do have a smart table and the 100" rail system for the sheet goods. I don't know how large a piece i"ll be working with on my bench. I also just saw the video of Dino using that old pc saw and he used the power bench to power table converters to cut a larger piece of ply.
any ideas?
Im suffering from EZ overload! scratch

Brian,

My PBB is in two parts, and I could set them up separately. I am also planning a third bench that will be dedicated to router work. Check out my blog for the existing PBB, and I will post about the new PBB (router bench) once I get a little further along and get the time.

Thanks Dik,
You have a sweet setup, eventually I will build somthing similar. I do have a biesy fence still in the box that I want to use. For now though Im feeling the waters to see how I'm going to use the system and for a first bench I thought I'd go with the pre-built. I aspire to get to your level of woodworking, My whole family back to my great grandfather were all carpenters. I unfortunatly didnt get the wood gene, I like to woodwork but I really have to work at it i.e. measure 4 times and cut twice...

Brian,

You can't go wrong starting slow. That way you begin to build the perfect PBB in your mind as you gain experience with EZ.

I am using two power benches - infact it is nothing strange to have 4 or five in the shop. Currently, I'm using a modified 25-50 - It has a unifence, extended width top to the back of the top and a couple of other add ons. This is used as a primary rip setup. I also have a cross-cut setup that will cross cut up to about 25". It also has a unifence and a few other add ons.

I find the use of two benches to be much more convenient. I also have a multi-purpose table that is normally in the Smart table mode. When I am doing a lot of cutting I have all three tables set to go. It works great but takes a good bit of room.
