Workbench Wonders
(with technical text assistance by Joe Adams)
We've all seen the haphazard work areas in our friends' garages: a couple bolt-together metal shelving systems and maybe an old door propped across the tops of the shelves, or perhaps a stationary workbench that's so large and heavy you have to back the car out of the garage to get in front of it. These are not our ideas of efficient workspace and tool storage systems. When it comes to having the utmost in workspace-area efficiency, the first name that comes up is Joe Adams and his Adamstand workbenches. The Adamstand workbenches are adaptable to almost any project that can be addressed. The Adamstand is, for lack of a better analogy, a big erector set designed to allow you to rotate work-holding fixtures and work surfaces like one would rotate from one socket to the next on a ratchet.

The Adamstand is available in several configurations and options levels. The Pro II is the home workshop model line, and the Pro I-used by several race teams including "Big Daddy" Don Garlits-is the professional line and can hold complete engines and transmissions with the correct adapters. We asked Joe Adams to design a revolutionary workshop environment for our readers, which is what you see here in the following photos using the Adamstand Pro II and several attachments. Read on and drool for yourself.

Currently, a major tool company that we all know is reviewing this patented product line for purchasing manufacturing and marketing rights for a possible infomercial marketing release. Of course, we'd love to tell you who that tool company is, but in today's wonderful legal world if we told you, we'd have to shoot you. Expand your mind just a bit more and understand Adamstand has a product that professionally transforms in this same fashion for you heavy hitters.
