MECHANICS' AND AMATEURS' WORK BENCHES. We show here a very complete line of Work Benches for Cabinet makers, Carvers, Amateurs, etc. These Benches are all made in first-class style, glued-up hard maple tops, with legs also of maple. They are all put together with joint bolts, and can be easily taken apart and crated for removal or shipment.
BENCH. Over one thousand of these have been sold to the different furniture manufacturers in Grand Rapids, Mich. No doubt that furniture manufacturers have excellent facilities for making their own benches if they choose, but by reason of making them in large quantities, the makers of these Benches can furnish them at a less price than they can be made for in small lots. Editor's NOTE:These were the factories which supplied the furniture sold by Stickley & others in the Arts and Crafts Style.

WESTON BENCH STOP. This is an old favorite; it is operated by thumb and finger on the top of the bench, and does not require a hammer or screw driver. Is altogether the most convenient form. The only criticism we have is that the manufacturer does not make it nicely enough.
DOUBLE BENCH HOOK. This is in general style the same as the Weston, but better made and fitted; is very easy of adjustment, either one or both hooks can be used at one time. One of its advantages is that a short, broad board can be worked without the necessity of using a tail dog. The construction of this Tail Screw is such that it can be attached to any bench ready for use in ten minutes. This device is in use in many of the leading furniture factories and planing mills in all parts of the country. The carriage has a 9 inch movement back and forth in frame; the tooth plate can be raised to any desired height up to 2 inches, or made flush with bench top. It can be used for all ordinary lengths, widths or thicknesses of stuff ; is well made, nicely finished and nickel plated.
NO. 2 BENCH STOP. In this Stop the working plate is square, one set of teeth fine, the other coarse. The spindle and plate are of steel, the body of malleable iron. It is very durable and useful.
PLATE BENCH STOP. This is a cheap, substantial Stop, easily adjusted on a bench or board. Can be carried about in the tool box to use on odd jobs.
