The Bench Horse ‘pony’ is smaller and lighter than the ‘original’, yet still has all the functionality. The torsion box is the same size, only the outer apron is not as deep. All the accessories except the toobox work on the ‘pony’. This is a very sturdy little bench.
The legs are heavy, square steel. They are held in a welded receiver socket that is integrated into each corner of the bench. They are held in place by clamping them in this socket with a three cornered knob. The legs are milled where the knob bolt contacts them, so as to give some vertical adjustability to each leg to steady it on uneven ground.
The legs are stored underneath for transport or storage. Set up can be done in about 20 seconds. A great bench for carvers to sit at.
