    At 4 feet the knobs are getting pretty far away, but if you're working on big radios the room is nice to have.

    The way I constructed my benches I don't think I'd use MDF for the table top. I glued two full sheets of 3/4" Birch ply together, for the tops on MY BENCHES.

    Nice benches. I’m curious what diameter and weight bearing casters did you use.

    Glen asked;
    I used THESE, they are pretty cheap and handle the load well. I have about 1200 pounds of total weight for the bench and equipment.

    I used the black plastic casters when I was building the bench, but swapped them for the cast Iron units before I starten installing the test gear.

    Shack? Shack? I use the 3-season room, and it is rapidly approaching the 4th season.

    I do not have a photo, but my "shack" was a Heath kit HW8 for HF and a Drake TR22 for 2 meters.
    My antenna was a random length inverted V ( 2 Radio Shack wire antenna kits and RG58 feedline) at about 20 feet.
    Very crude but since I did not know any better, it worked.
