Here is the assembly bench I've been wanting to build. Yes, that's a salvaged hospital gurney underneath. That makes the 10" casters stop in their tracks when you apply the brakes and you can't move it. The height is adjustable with a hydraulic pump lift. And yes, John White's new fangled bench is one source of inspiration. Those nifty clamps are original with me. I've learned to make very cheap and fast turnbuckle bolts and knobs. The other side of the top is ready for clamps, but budget constraints held the second pair of clamps up for now. Notice how the side rails are used. A little bit of hardware change allowed them to latch in a position so they could serve as tool or part trays.
