That's a nice powerbench. I'm looking to make one of my own like that. Any tips?

Being no stranger to making my own, I felt confident in my calculations. Still it is a rather daunting task and took way more time and jigging that I would advise anyone to go through.

The only major innovations are the lift bar on the bridge,








and the locked in place incra miter gauge setup parallel to the rail.

I love the lift bar though it makes my rail usable only in one direction. I plan to cut down the angle and put a wooden handle on instead.

The incra allows me to do angle setups instantly. It is quite convenient and can easily be moved or removed if needed.

This power bench is not modifiable or very portable. It is however perfect for most of my needs. It works amazingly well and I am very satisfied with it.

Very impressive power bench set up. Thanks for sharing Bob.
