Re: Is Jet good quality

:lol: As has been said here Jet is good quality, but harder to get parts for. Grizzly is much easier. The only problem is that, with machines made in China, you sometimes have to wait until they make a run of the part you need or it arrives from China, which can take time. Precision-Matthews has lat...

Re: Cabinets With Small Drawers For Under Work Table

I settled on these rolling wood drawers: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00K9 ... UTF8&psc=1
They take some assembly, but they are solid wood for the price small narrow drawers on wheels. They roll right under my wall-to-wall worktable.

Re: Buying drill bits

Hard to find US made drills these days, and I don't want to buy offshore ones. People tell me NOT to buy a set, because then I am buying sizes I may never use. I have a Triumph 090560 T123 No 1-No 60 Metal Index Size Ranger 1/16-Inch-1/2 by 64ths High Speed Steel Drill Set, Bright Finish set on my A...

Re: Cabinets With Small Drawers For Under Work Table

I'm looking for small drawers. The unit will go under a cantilever table that will be my clock repair work space: http://www.instructables.com/id/Simple-Rock-Solid-Cantilever-Desk/. I considered one of those expensive clock repair benches, but they are small, and don't look very sturdy. I decided to...

Re: Cabinets With Small Drawers For Under Work Table

Thanks, Steve. Eqipto is expensive, but there are used on Ebay that are not too high. But thanks to your suggestion, I found Durham, which has some nice stuff that is even stackable. I am looking for a cabinet, ideally wood, that has small drawers, and will fit under a tabletop that will be 39" high...

Cabinets With Small Drawers For Under Work Table

Hi guys,

I am building a cantilever work table to work on clocks, and need some short cabinets with several small drawers that will fit under the table, which is about 39" high. Does anyone know where I might find some?
