    Hi there!

    I have just purchased a Workbee 1510 and am planning to build a workstation to install my machine.
    I would like to ask those who have experience with the 1510 and consult them. What material do you consider most appropriate for the table? Metal frame or plywood? I plan to machine wood, aluminum and plastics.

    I would appreciate comments.
    Greetings from Paraguay

    Plywood will work fine. Many have built their tables, including me, from plywood. If you have access to metal working tools and are more comfortable with metal then by all means do it in metal.

    I built a torsion box table top for mine out of particle board it is extremely flat, dimensionally stable, and heavy so it helps reduce vibrations.
