Yes, once I look a bit more closely at it, it's a rip off.  Says 460lb how can you ship 460lb free?  anywhere, let alone worldwide.    Bit too early for me this morning & rushing through the new posts. my excuse anyway.

ta :)
Just looked at the sliders, small and medium draws have a single slide and the deep draws have dual slides.
All are ball bearings with a keep close detent on them.
Seems to be traveling well after 8,000km’s or so in the back of a truck.

Well the bunnings one that was my front runner, turns out to be 1.8 and the space I have is 1.7 - typical. :frustrated:
My toolbox is 183 x 49cm then you can add handles to the ends if required.
There is a 2 row one as well that would be about 140cm long.

Thanks, and thanks.

Yeah the space I have is 10cm too short for that workbench with handles REMOVED so a 'no go' sadly. I could really do with that size. Ah well.

140cm would be better than nothing I suppose...

With lockdown over it must be time to go shopping...


Tempted to buy the 72" one from Bunnings and just put it somewhere else in the garage rather than where I was going to put it... Not sure where though.  :confused1:

I'd also like one of these and use the top for tool battery chargers etc

Not sure if it'd fit on an existing wooden cabinet I have, hopefully would. I'll have to do some measurirg.

These also look handy

Awesome site, cheers grog.
@VladTepes any of the ones you listed would be great, go with your first pick. I fitted a hardwood timber top to my steel framed bench, best thing ever. Now thinking of adding drawer or cupboards below.
I try to take one day at a time, however sometimes several days catch up with me at once.
