Excerpt from Farm Workshop Guide, 1947.
On the farm there is a lot of repair work that cannot be
taken indoors to the workbench. The sketch shows a simple
way of taking the workbench to the job.
This portable workbench is sturdily constructed of old pieces
of lumber and two old plow wheels or other similar wheels
that may be available. A box is built into one end to hold the necessary tools, while a drawer to hold
bolts, nails, screws, etc. may be placed at the other end
if desired. The side rails extend at the end opposite the
wheels to serve as handles when the bench is being moved.
The whole structure should be rigidly built and the wheels
must fit tightly to secure a firm surface.
