    "Off the shelf" vs DIY workbenches

DIY, means the top can be at the right height for you, not you having to bend to someone else's idea. DIY means your bench fits where you want it to...

    Anyone use one of these?

    A Tragonic controller. My latest late father-in-Law find. There is no indication of age, except its, 3 square pin plug and socket. It appears to be a variable resistor for single phase mains electricity. The instruction leaflet is in 6 european languages, so was expected to sell widely...
