    90 degree plys restrict movement. I doesn't work if the plys are thick. 5 degree plys would allow movement so they could be any thickness. An existing 2" thick bench top could be topped with a 1" ply...

    Seems that the flat bed tow would work out better. It can tilt and winch and back right into the garage and would have more capability for a tall load.

    So back to the original inconsistently, Bessey probably is giving the capacity with the clamp screwed down.

    In my experience Sapele, like most other woods varies in density even within a single sample. So if the setting has a big effect on the results I'd suspect the results.
