Easy, don't just complain, use your brains!...over here I can't find much(Portugal) information or light fixtures that don't leave me broke...
... I can't spend over 150£.
But you do know the most important thing which is that it unless you do then leave it alone. Here in the Uk we use three pin plugs with square pins, at least you are fairly common with the rest of the world in that you have round pins and 16 amps rather than 13 amps, so as your supply voltage and frequency are the same as the UK then any machinery brought in the UK will work for you.I know nothing of electricity
I've built three workbenches so far. One made out of pallets, my 4year old daughter's bench(mini roubo) and my current one which was kind of difficult to build.(after thirdcoastman's design but made of pine).. The one that gave me the most pleasure building for it's simplicity was my daughter's. Now, one day I went to the lumberyard here in Fafe and a client had just declined an order for a custom beam 15*25*300cm out of eucalyptus. I asked how much they wanted for it, haggled a bit and the gent gave me a good price, 30 bucks. My dad needs a workbench and so I decided right there and then to make him a slab style roubo bench. Weird?Hi, Domingos
May I ask why you feel the need for a Roubo-type bench? (did Chris Schwarz make another "victim"? )
Please don't misunderstand me....
Regarding Chris Scharwz I have to admit I do respect his work and opinions and after having read his books(some) it has definitely affected my view of what a workbench should feel like.
