Default Plans for a self cleaning bench

Pull one lever and stand back and watch your bench clean it self. You MUST stand to the side before pulling lever!!!!

Bgott The program is called "Smartdraw". It is not a true cad like solidworks or artocad but its fast and fairly easy to run. It is a share ware program that you can download to try it. If you do let me know and I can send you some drawings to play with. The drawing that I make are not to scale but I can come close.

Digr, I downloaded SmartDraw shortly after I refurbished this computer; all I could find was a 30 day trial version that I have not found time to even try to learn & I think it is about to expire. The software is $200.
So I have to guess you found a different deal than I did.

Anyway you could put a Hydraulic Cylinder on that so we wouldn't have to pull on a lever ? with push button control

I was thinking of going hydraulic but I think it would be to slow, everything would land in front of the bench but with the springs it would throw everything across the shop so you could still walk in front of the bench

Hey I used to have a bench sorta like that.One of the legs wasn't attached very well and it would kick out at will Everything would slide over to that edge and fall in a pile.I like yours better all you need is magnets on the wall in front of it to catch the stuff it slings over.Then sort through the stiff that don't stick.

I drew them and keep them on file so I can use them when needed. A lot of them were for practice like the wrenches and screw drivers hack saw and such. but most of them I use in drawings like the valves motor ect.
