told you about my plans for setting up a magnetic workbench based on an
architect drawing board?
went ahead and did it. I moved my workshop from one room of the
basement to another, and in that manoeuvere I got enough space for the 175 x
100 cm drawing board. The wooden table plate is dead solid, so also
the stand. The table can be tilted from 0 til 90 degree, giving me the
opportunity to work sitting or upright. I can also use the table as an
ordinary table and adjust the height to both sitting and standing position.
concern is the steel plate. I got a 1.5 mm thick plate from a local
workshop and the magnetic effect seems to be OK. I went around testing
with a powerful magnet I normally use for cleaning my aquarium glass for
algees. The plate seem to attach good to the table but if it's
necessary I will attach it with glue or screws.
Now I must
get the magnets, and I have contacted your supplier and asked for freight
rates to Norway. I cant wait to get started!
