Re: Portable benches

It is not evident in the pix but there is a 1/4 " groove milled in the allthread that is the front rest post . Thayt peevrnts it from spinning as you turn the elevation wheel ( nu t with some barstock welded on ) . This is a very stable bench . I also set posts in concrete at places I shoot so that I can attach the tabletop only .

Re: Portable benches

I bought a surveyor's tripod and 5/8" nut at Home Depot. I epoxied the nut into the bottom of the benchtop that I had been clamping into my workmate. This tripod is a bit different. It looks like a big, heavy-duty camera tripod with half-size survey-type legs attached to a center elevation post.

I have only dry-fired in the backyard with it so far, but I think it should be just fine. Percieved advantages at this point are:
1. Lower cost - about $225 total.
2. lighter weight.
3. Easier transportation and storage.
4. Greater elevation adjustment (kneeling to standing)

The only draw-back I see is that it does not have an integral, rotating seat.

I hope to go g-hoggin' with it this Saturday. I will try to post pics and a report.

Thanks for everbody's input.

Rick
