12 Apr Back Saving Electronic Adjustable Height Workbench Frame from Grizzly
This leg-set lets a woodworker adjust a workbench’s height with the push of a button. The T31850 Electronic Adjustable Workbench Frame has dual motors and a digital height control that can effortlessly raise and lower the worktop from 23″ to 48-1/2″, so it’s absolutely ideal for working on furniture, assembling cabinets and applying a brushed or rubbed finish. It has a lifting capacity of 265 lbs. It doesn’t come with the top, so the woodworker could install something inexpensive if it’s going to be used for tasks such as spray finishing. Or he/she could pair the legs with one of Grizzly’s maple workbench tops. The legs are set up for tops that are 21-3/4″ wide with an adjustable length from 43″ to 74-5/8″.
The new leg-set has pre-drilled holes on the feet, which makes it easy to add casters for the mobility. No tools are required for height adjustments – simply press the buttons on the keypad. A digital LED display shows the exact height, and the woodshop can program three custom heights for favorite workbench positions. It comes with a 1-year warranty that covers parts and factory defects. The frame runs on standard 110 Volt power, and the motors automatically reverses to avoid damage if the frame should ever collide with another object during height adjustments. There are telescoping legs for an easy transition between heights, and it has very quiet operation – less than 50 decibels. Made with sturdy powder-coated steel columns, it assembles in less than 15 minutes.
After the AWFS woodworking show in Las Vegas in 2017, WoodEzine reported on an industrial version of this concept, the Marcon Adjustable Table, which is ideal for loading and unloading CNCs as well as letting employees work at their ideal height to reduce back problems.
