As you can see, it has had very little use. It comes with two vises that still look like new for the most part. If you can help date this bench, PLEASE let me know. This is an extremely rare bench at best and truly a one-of-a-kind opportunity to own one in this nearly new condition.The work surface measures 95-1/2" wide by 25" deep (not counting the front and right hand mounted vises) and 33 tall to the top of the work surface. There is a tool trough along the back so one's tools do not roll off onto the floor or toes. It is tapered on the right side so one can easily wipe or brush the dust and chips out of the trough at the end of the day. Thanks to the semi-arid and relatively dry climate here in Montana (about 13 inches of total precipitation including rain and snow in a year), there is no rot on the wood or rust on the steel parts. Please notice how the fragile wood vice handles still look like the day they were made. All of the wood and steel parts are still wearing their original finishes and have never been refinished or touched up at all. There are few minor dents, nicks and scratches in the wood, especially on the edges of the vises as you can see in the photos. The bare steel round ways and screws in the vises are not rusted or corroded at all. It showed a lot of use and abuse and was nowhere near as nice as this bench is. This might make a great table to photograph high end models on.
It is also nice enough to be used as furniture in someone's home. One could use if for a bar to eat on in one's kitchen. The possibilities for this great piece of history are truly endless. I will add more informtion soon.
