is the video of the work bench up yet because it wasnt there when i checked 5 minutes ago. When does new episodes come out like wut dates???
New Ben Heck shows come out every other Monday, so this episode should be live tomorrow.
i am from Germany and watched all your shows! I was very excited of when the episode with the portable work bench comes out...
All i have to say is AWESOME!!!! Thanks a lot Ben, your are a great inspiration for me a lot of other people. Please don't ever give up this Projekt "The Ben Heck Show"...
Greetings from Munich Germany
hey ben why dont you use autodesk inventor or solid works or some other similar program with your designs? i would imagine that it would make the design process a lot easier and move faster since you can export the designs directly to a cnc mill
Damn it! l love your show and the project being done here.

Thanks for publishing the plans. I've been very interested in having my own portable station ever since I saw your original on the show. I find myself fixing a lot of random electronics as a hobby, and this would be perfect for keeping my messes controlled in my office.
As someone without access to a CNC router ... are there any online services anyone can recommend for having these parts routed and shipped? I didn't notice that service being offered here on element14, unless I overlooked it.
Thanks, love the show.
I would like to know how long did it take to route the porta bench. I saw that you charge $60 per hour and since i don't have a cnc machine I was wondering if you could route the parts for me and them ship them to me.
Thanks your show rocks.
I am not sure how much Ben would charge per hour but the shipping would kill you. I am trying local custom cabinet making places to see if they use a machine and if they could cut these out for me.
How do i get the measures? Doesn`t have in the files or i`m missing something ? help me please .
What software are you using? I just downloaded DWG TrueView as a free veiwer so I could get the dimensions. There is a measure tool. Would be nice if you didn't have to go through and measure everything but it's easier than making everything up myself.
Thanks Ben! Don't have a CNC (big surprise) but I think I'll try to put the table saw to use and cut em up myself. Router and jigsaw might help out though too...
ben great idea on the portable work bench. I have seen the show and how you cnc route the parts. I was thinking, how about adding a few lights. So that you can do some of your work in the dim light condition.
thanks and more power.
Very cool project!!!
I built my own portable worbench last week using your plans
I printed them out using 50 Din a4, glued them on two 1x1 wood pieces and so i have my own now.
Many thanks for the great idea and the plans!!!!
Any chances this would available in kit form? I bet it would sell like hotcakes.
I have very little woodworking abiltiy, but I can drill and work a screwdriver, and have some limited success with wood glue. I can't cut a straight line if my life depended on it. Seems to me that having someone CNC it for you is prohibitly expensive. I can, however, put a kit together. I am very adept at interpreting IKEA plans.
Hello everyone! Attached are the design files for the Episode 13 project - a new design of the Portable Work bench.
Sheets 1 and 2 are the parts you need to cut, and Main Layout shows all the parts put together in multiple views.
If you have any questions, discuss below! Also you can enter for a chance to win the original portable work bench seen in prior episodes and Maker Faire New York.
Enjoy the episode we shot during the Midwest blizzard!
