MagBench Portable Work Bench Review: What Is MagBench?
MagBed is a portable magnetic work bench that provides a convenient way to do your work. It’s designed with the purpose of allowing you to use your mobile device while working at home or even traveling. You can easily attach it to any flat surface such as counter top, wall, or floor. Its size is just right for one person to carry around.
MagBed Portable Work Bench Review: Features And Specifications Of MagBed Portable Work Bench
The MagBed portable work bench comes with various features and specifications. It includes a magnetic base which allows you to attach it to any flat surface such as countertop, wall, or floor. Also, the unit has two adjustable legs which allow you to adjust its height from 1/2″ up to 2″. Moreover, there are three different sizes of magnets included in the product. These include small, medium and large.
The magnet size determines the strength of the attachment. Small magnets have a strength of 10 kN; Medium magnets have a strength of 20 kN; Large magnets have a strength of 40 kN.
MagBed Portable Work Bench Review: Magnetic Base Design Of MagBed Portable Work Bench
MagBed portable work bench design is based on a simple concept. A magnetic base is used to hold the unit together and provide stability when using it. The construction is very similar to the common steel plate. It involves welding flat steel sheets together (Figure 1).
First of all, you need to weld three steel sheets together in a triangular shape as shown in figure1. The sheet size should be about 3/16″ thick. You can also use 1/4″ thick steel and then bend it into a triangle yourself using a vise or hammer. The sheets should be cut to about 12″ x 12″ or 11.5″ x 11.5″.
After welding the three sheets together in a triangular shape, it is then ready to weld onto the base (Figure 2).
The base consists of two steel bars. The length of these bars should be about 32″ and can be made out of 3/8″ square steel tube. The two tubes are welded together at the ends as shown in figure 2. The triangular sheet is then welded onto the base using six or seven welds (Figure 3). It is very important to use the proper filler materials and welds so that the base can be flat.
If not, then it will not hold the unit together and provide stability when using it.
After welding the base, you can start with the construction of the top part. The top part consists of six 1″ x 2″ x 32″ rectangular steel bars. They are welded together into a hexagonal shape as shown in figure4. The hexagonal shape will have three sides with five bars and the other three sides with four bars. It is very important to weld the hexagonal shape properly because it will provide rigidity to the top part and prevent it from bowing when a load is applied to it.
After welding the hexagonal shape, you can then attach the base to the top part. The base is attached to the hexagonal shape using eight 3/8″ bolts and nuts (Figure 5). It is very important to make sure that the bolts are tightened properly. Otherwise, the entire top part can become unstable and collapse.
The top part can be used to carry various tools by adjusting the height of the legs. It is advised to use only half of the top part if you are using light tools. This is because the unit can become quite wobbly if you over stretch the legs. Therefore, if the legs are fully stretched, only the top half becomes useful. If the legs are stretched only halfway then the entire top part can be used to hold various tools.
The portable work bench is very useful in that it provides a sturdy and stable platform for working on your car or other projects. It is also relatively easy to construct and doesn’t require welding.
MagBed Portable Work Bench: A compact, Easy-to-Assemble Polymagnetizer
The portable work bench is a very useful device for working on various projects that require a stable platform to work on. It also provides a strong holding force that can be used to hold various tools and materials in place. However, it does have one limitation and that is the fact that it must be grounded or electrically connected to the item that you want to magnetize.
