It is instructive to compare different brands by weight. And then to calculate a cost/lb figure for each.
I'm waiting in the wings to buy a bench, and it will be one of those two. The big seller here in the US is Sjoberg from Sweden. You hear a lot of complaints about that brand because of flimsy legs, a relatively thin benchtop hidden by a wide skirt, and lack of rigidity when working.
The Hoffman and Hammer benches weigh in at over 200 lbs in the larger sizes. Those figures reflect strength. My local wood machine dealer swears by both brands, while hehandled others, including some in kit form.
Mmmm...I acquired a second-hand bench. It looks very similar/identical to an H&H..especially the vices, legs, tool well etc but there is no logo on the bench to confirm one way or t'other. The vices say 'Made in germany' but that's about it from the point of identification. The top is made from solid beech...long strips.
Very, very, very heavy. But it racks like anything and the front vice jaws are not parallel and no easy way to square them up.
I appreciate that without confirmation it's an H&H this post may be of limited value.
