If you are like me and have way too many power tools, then you probably also have way too few electrical outlets around the work-bench too. The Benchmate is a handy device for adding some easily accessible electricity. It adds four outlets and is rated for 15 amps. Best of all, it is flexible from temperatures from -45 to 221 degrees Fahrenheit. That is good news since our garage is approaching the upper range of that right now. Available for about $15.00 from Rockler.
About Marc Lyman
Marc grew up under a brave single mom who "encouraged" home improvement on the family home. Early toddler gifts included a tool set, and even a cordless Bosch drill when cordless drills first came out. In grade school (give or take a few years), Marc's mom said, "We need to cut down some trees. . . . here's a chainsaw." A father figure also involved Marc in many home improvement projects, including a summer of home remodeling in Palo Alto, CA. Toss in some Obsessive Compulsive personality traits researching everything home improvement related. The end result: a genetically pre-disposed, socially sculpted home improvement machine! For his complete profile, please visit our About page. Really, it's worth it.
