    Workbench height and width

    Thread Starter: Gene Pavlovsky

    There are already some discussions on this topic, but I still didn't figure what to make of them. I'm finishing Christopher Schwarz's book on Workbenches, and planning to build a Roubo workbench - my first bench. I'm 6' 3" (well, 190 cm since I live in Europe), and mostly use hand tools (my...

    What's your favorite straight edge?

    Thread Starter: Dave Cullen

    I have a steel 24" straight edge that has a slight bow to it, and it's bugged me for 25 years. This is the type that's about 1/8" thick and one edge is beveled. I can get a "machinist's" version of the same thing, accurate to .001 over its length, from McMaster for about $115 or $64 without the...
