Tool maker rolls out workbench for job sites
A local tool maker is rolling out an adjustable workbench for job sites.
Sturgis-based Midwest Tool & Cutlery Company said last month it has introduced its Portable Work Surface, or PWS, which can be transported and set up in any workspace.
The PWS has two height positions that enable it to be used as scaffolding in the lower position (21.6 inches) and as a workbench in the upper position (31.25 inches).
The PWS also includes a built-in power strip with a three-port electrical outlet.
The whole system weighs 30 pounds.
Four clamps on the edge of the PWS allow a user to switch out the work surface based on the specific needs of a job.
The PWS is designed to be used on HVAC jobs and industrial and building projects, including roofing, siding and drywall, and other professional jobs.
Midwest Tool & Cutlery Company began in Sturgis in 1945 by making metal cutting snips and related hand tools.
It operates manufacturing facilities in Sturgis, Kalkaska and Caledonia, Ohio.
