I was reading an interesting argument on a FB page about blacksmithing. (I’m not one but would like to play with it some) about welding better metal to a harbor freight anvil for better bounce. the resulting argument was you from those who say you can’t and those who say you can but shouldn’t. i assumed the guy was trying to be snarky when he posted this link http://web.utk.edu/~mtaylo29/pages/Wood%20welding.htm

Welding wood. ever heard of it before?

For a hybrid/power tool work bench I built the Jack-bench. It has classic maple top with dog holes, twin screw vise, quick release front vise, and a 12 volt scissor jack to raise and lower the bench top to any level I need( within reason). It does a great job as an outfeed table as well. Yes Shannon, it does have a power strip on the side.
