Kreg Workbench Weight?
14 Replies

I'm thinking about building the Kreg workbench as is.  I'm wondering how much it weighs when completed?  Is it fairly portable?  I'd like to be able to drag it outside for the occasional sunny day…Continue

"I guess I was speaking more from my perspective than the OP, me bad. In my space, anything on the other side of the table isn't easy to access. Just pointing out that locks on all 4 wheels aren't really a necessity, if you like them…"

"I agree that you want to lock the wheel and swivel on anything that locks. What I have been doing is just putting the locks on the front side and just swivels on the back. Two locked casters is enough to keep things stabilized and locking casters on…"

"This style caster, offered by Rockler, has a lock design, which keeps the wheel from rolling & pivoting--- more beneficial for a table saw, or the like.   Most casters on todays market, features a wheel lock, that only keeps the wheel from…"

"I would build the small Kreg work bench to be the center piece if you will, of your shop. Then go with a few of the "cubes". That would make you very modular. Good idea.  "

"You could make something like this. http://www.woodsmithshop.com/download/412/multipurpose-shop-cart.pdf  Instead of the sandwiched top, you could use simple MDF and just modify the framing so you didn't have to cut dado's, rabbets,…"

RCW replied to William Rems's discussion 'Kreg Workbench Weight?'
"Yeah you can move it pretty easily. You could also put castors on it or the white furniture movers type of slides that would make it easy to move also. The Kreg bench is not a main work bench in my opinion it is not large enough or heavy duty for…"
